  The answer to the 2nd question is no you can't use pagp with a non cisco device so that is out.  Unless you are running really old catos code then it should support lacp.  I believe there were some restrictions on the 4006 on which ports you could aggregate together .  Try something like show port capabilities to see.

@CSCO12006413

Listen to ‘glen.grant’ – ‘pagp’ is propriety to Cisco devices, so your only option will be ‘lacp’.

However, my question to add to this post – would ‘CSCO12006413’ want to go with the MAC or IP Load-balancing methods? Question - If the destination address is the same, but source address different ‘CSCO12006413’ should use MAC based load-balancing; however, if this is for server-to-server configuration, I think you will want to use IP based load-balancing on the EtherChannel configuration?

Thanks
