VLANs across multiple switches

I have a situation where the core swtich is sitting a site A and I need to need to extend a VLAN to site C, however the link between those two site is ran through site B where another procurve switch is sitting. If it is vlan 10 that I want to extend, on site B's switch can I just add vlan 10 and tag the two ports involved in the Site A>C link to pass VLAN 10 traffic. Site B does not need access to vlan 10. Any help is appreciated!

Why do you want to configure the uplink to site C with vlan10 taged, when you don't need vlan10 at site10?

Hi Aaron,

What you mentioned is right, you want vlan 10 to reach site C so site B uplink ports connected to site A and C should be tagged on VLAN 10.
