Multiple vlans on a single port on a core switch

Good afternoon to everyone. I ask your fogiveness ahead of time, as I am new to the networking department. My question is this: We have a Cisco 6509 core switch which of course, has trunking enabled. Is it possible to have a port on the switch enabled for multiple vlans? I believe the commands would be:

config t

interface gigabit x/x

switchport mode multi x,y

Your help is greatly appreciated!

Here's an example-

switchport

switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q

switchport trunk allowed vlan 601,604,606,609,610,613,751

switchport mode trunk

no ip address

speed 1000

duplex full

HTH and please rate.

Hi,

Please check the following link:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps607/products_command_reference_chapter09186a008007eb87.html#xtocid1016022

But please note that a multi-VLAN port and trunk port cannot coexist on the same switch.

[edit] The multi-VLAN port feature is supported only on Catalyst 2900XL/3500XL Series Switches. This feature is not supported on Catalyst 4500/4000, 5500/5000, or 6500/6000 Series Switches or any other Catalyst switches.

HTH,

I certainly appreciate the expedient response everyone! I was hoping there was a way around having a trunk port and multi-VLAN port on the same switch, but it appears not to be the case. Best regards to everyone and thank you again!
