This may sound like a wierd question, but a hub, as I understand it, is basically a glorified repeater, right? If you were setting up a trunk between 2 switches (say for example both are 2950XL's), can you not put a hub between the 2 and still have it trunk all the vlan info? I understand trunk ports can only be used between switches (and/or routers), and that access ports are used for any kind of PC attached to it, but why would a hub cause it to only work as an access port? From a network admin's point of view would that not make it easier to sniff out traffic?
Thank You in advance for any info or clarification you can provide.
