Different trunk encapsulation

Unanswered Question
Jul 21st, 2008

I have a switch with an ISL for its uplink. If I add a redundant uplink and set trunk encapsulation to dot1q will the switch work on layer 3?

I have this problem too.

Encapsulation is point to point or in other words from port X of switch A to port Y of switch B. For your dot1q trunk, just make sure native vlan is the same for both sides.

Now, your question about layer 3 is not very clear, do you have the switch connected to a router that is doing the inverlan routing? A little bit more of explanation will be needed.
