Trunks ports (VLAN newbie)

Can anyone explain to me what is the trunk port ? If I have only tagged vlans on the port is that a trunk ?

If you have one or more tagged VLAN(s) on a port it is a "trunk", in Cisco-speak.

In HP-speak, "trunk" has nothing to do with VLANs, it just means "link aggregation".

There is more on the plate (HPE A Series Comware based versus HPE E Series ProVision/ArubaOS-Switch terminology/command differences about managing VLANs): see https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=mmr_kc-0102233
