Can ProCurve 4000M make mesh w Cisco 2950?

Can a 4000m and Cisco 2950 switch be configured to form a mesh over 2 ports? If not, then how about a trunk?

A trunk is possible. mesh is procurve proprietary so would not be configurable on cisco box

Michael,

I support Jeff Brownell's answer fully, meshing is HP propriatary.

My question would be are you talking HP-Trunking are do you mean Cisco Trunking? (Just to confuse you more)
Both are possible btw.

Check out the faq's on:

http://www.hp.com/rnd/support/faqs/8000_4000_2424.htm

Then scroll down to:
Trunking (HP & Fast EtherChannel (FEC)

There you will probably find your answers.

Thanks, gentlemen. I will try using FEC.

Cheers,
