Switch configuration recommendations for IPT

Answered Question
Aug 7th, 2008

CAn anyone advise on the best way to configure a switch port that has a Cisco telephone connected with a PC connected to the phone port.

In the past I was advised that any port that has an IP Telephone connected should be set to trunk mode with dot1q encapsulation. Is this the best way to configure the port or should the port be set to access mode?

I have this problem too.
