hi every body!

i just want to confirm the following:


sw1(config-if)#switchport

#switchport mode dynamic desirable

sw2(config-if)#switchport

# switchport mode dynamic desirable.

Will the trunk form? or do we need to use the command: switchport trunk encapsulation negotiate on both switches?


thanks a lot!

Switch A - Switch b


auto - on or desirable

desirable - on, desirable, auto

nonegotiate - on

switchport trunk encapsulation negotiate is the default setting on a switchport, thus there isn't a need to enter such command.


A switchport will form a trunk under the following modes.



Desirable<->Desirable

Desirable<->Auto

on<->on
