Re: Vlan trunking

Hi,

According to this document, Inter-Switch Link (ISL) trunking is supported on the 2900XL since Cisco IOS Release 11.2(8)SA4 (Enterprise Edition Software):

NOTE: The Catalyst 2940 and 2950/2955 series switches do not support ISL encapsulation.

HTH, please rate if it does help,

The original 2900XL, or 4MB version does not support trunking at all.
