Please let me know if the trunking ports availables in 3Com superstack 3 switches (3c17203) can carry tagged packet, i.e:
Can they configure vlan trunking (similar to Accelar switches)?

    Assisted Solution

    You can use the 802.1q capability and a normal port to connect the units.

    The trunking ports actually pass all of the traffic between similar units using internal protocols.
