Core Switch with tagged trunk ports

Hi - first off - newb question

I have 2 stacked 2920's that will be our core/distribution switch(s)

I have an agregated interface on my FW which will process DHCP requests -from there I have my (uplink) tunk port (1/1, 2/1) that my vlans are tagged with.

what tag is going to register the packet - the VLAN ID or is there a specific setting in trunks that i need to specify so ALL my vlans are accessible on this switch interface?

ALSO - do I have to specify IP gateway for each vlan?

See sample: 

vlan 168 name "guest" tagged Trk1 no ip address exit

Re: Core Switch with tagged trunk ports

The packet gets the tag in the host or in the switch in which it goes untagged. In procurve you unfortunately have to tag the VLANs per hand, there is no "int a1 vlan all tagged" or something like that.

ALSO - do I have to specify IP gateway for each vlan?

You don't need a gateway in a VLAN to work. Please look the function of a gateway up again.
