VLAN trunking protocol on C2960-S switches

Have a question or want to start a discussion? Post it! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
    I just received a C2960S-24TS-L, and discovered that it doesn't
understand the "switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q" interface command.  I
did a Web search, and found a response about the fact that this was
unrecognized because this model of switch only supports dot1q encapsulation,
so the command was unnecessary.  Is this accurate?  I want to make sure the
"vlan trunking protocol" is configured correctly before I put the switch into
production.

Thanks,
Mike

Yes that is correct. Only the legacy hardware (ie. 4500/6500) supports
ISL trunking any longer, and the standard, dot1q, is the only way for
new school switch hardware.

It's true - I've done the same before and it's working fine with a dot1q
trunk.
