Re: Multiple up link ports

Of Course you can, that what they call it, Ling Aggregation or Trunks.

Simply a group of Physical Uplinks form one Logical Link, has the speed of all these uplinks, and you have also a Redundancy and Load Balancing, so more powerfull for your Network.

For example: HPswitch(config)# trunk 1-8 trk1, where ports 1 to 8 are the Trunked ports.

For more details on How to implement Port Trunking and the Conditions, please refer to:ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/networking/software/2600-2800-4100-6108-MgmtConfig-Oct2005-59906023.pdf
