Diffrence between a trunk port and a port with access to multiple vlans?

Hi there.

I'm confused with hp switchs' configurations.

Whats the diffrence between putting an interface defined as a trunk port in the first case or put this port in multiple vlans as a normal port. Can some body help and explain it?

First case :

 

vlan 101
tagged 24
exit
vlan 102
tagged 24
exit
vlan 103
tagged 24
exit

second case:

trunk 24 trk1 trunk
vlan 101
tagged trk1
exit
vlan 102
tagged trk1
exit
vlan 103
tagged trk1
exit

Maybe these two pages below will help you to clarify Port Link types differences and different ways that each Port Link type uses to associate with (Port-based) VLAN(s):

ProCurve Switches - Port Link Types

HPE Networking Switches - Understanding VLAN Port Types on HPE Switches

Thanks. It was somehow helpful.

I Procurve switches, a "trunk" has nothing to do with VLANs.

"trunk" = link aggregation, eg, LACP.
