VLAN tagging question

I have two HP procurve 2650 switches.

I have vlans 10,11,12 setup on each switch.
All ports belonging to these vlans are untagged.

Can I create a trunk between these two switches which is a tagged member of these three vlans so that an untagged port in vlan 10 on switch 1can communicate with an untagged port in vlan 10 on the second switch over the trunk?

Re: VLAN tagging question

Trunk in ProCurve speak means 2 or more aggregated ports. (You can set up a single port trunk but there's no point).

In this instance, all you need to do is simply tag the uplink port for those VLANs.

If you do want to create a 2-port trunk, create that first, and then tag it for those VLANs.
