Re: unmanage switch connected to the manage switch through trunk

This depends entirely upon the make and model of your un-managed switch. Some newer-built switch doesn't care whether it's an access or a trunk port but older switch can be a pain.

Why would you want to make it a trunk port if its a unmanaged switch ? Just make it an access port .
