dot 1q trunk on gigabit etherchannel

I will appreciate any help about the below subject.

there are two catalyst 2960 switches with two fixed 1000 Base T uplink ports.

- Both switches have 3 VLANs: VLAN 1, VLAN 2 and VLAN 3 (VLAN 1 is only for management purposes).

- I will bundle two fixed gigabit uplink ports and get an ether channel with two gigabit bandwidth.

Can I configure this ether channel as 802.1q trunk port? So computers on same VLANs on different switches can communicate each other? (ether channel and trunk at the same time)

Before buying the equipment, I feel myself more comfortable if you guys confirm it works.

Thank you very much in advance.

:-)

HI Friend,

Yes you can ofcourse do it. You can configure the 2 interfaces first with trunk config and then you configure the 2 interfaces for etherchannel config.

Check this link it will help you to configure dot1q trunk and etherchannel together on ports.
