We have just purchased a new HP Procurve 2824 and have one cable running to a Alied Telesyn AT 8350GB as our 1GB link. We are experiencing a bottle neck on this port and would like to set up trunking between the two switches using an extra 3 ports.
I have looked at the instructions for the HP switch and am a little uncertain at the exact way to go about setting the two units up. The allied Telesyn seems pretty straight forward as its just a case of going to the trunk configuration and selecting the ports. The HP is a little more complicated and as I have never set trunking up before I would like some advice as to how to connect the two.
The manual gives options for setting up static LCAP, dynamic LCAP, FEC or TRUNK (NON PROTOCOL), this is the section that is confusing me. As I am uncertain which option to use to configure with the other switch correctly.
