Trunk ?

Can one fiber uplink to another switch on a different floor be a single Trunk?  Most of the Trunks in our company have two or more uplinks that are trunked together.

 I need to get a user access to our DSL VLAN.  The current switch that the user is connected to is only using the default_vlan.  I know I would need to created a "DSL VLAN" on the switch then configure the port that the user is connected to as Tagged for the DSL VLAN.  I beileve I would then need to make that same port a trunk and associate it with a new trunk group.

Re: Trunk ?

No problem linking switches using a single connection.  Without link aggregation you only loose redundancy and extra bandwidth.

Re: Trunk ?

Thank you.  This is a production switch so i don't want to accidentaly bring it down.

Re: Trunk ?

What would happen if I added a trk group to the main uplink port?  Would this switch then inherit the trk groups vlan?  I only want one port on this switch to be part of the DSL vlan.
