Hi Experts,
    I got 2 dell powerconnect 2824.
    Switch#1
    port 1-10 = vlan 1
    port 11-20 = vlan 2
    same for switch #2

    switch # 1is connected to router on each vlan
   i,e, port 1 is connected to router port 1 and got vlan 1 ip range 192.168.1.x
   port 11 is connected to router port 2 and got vlan2 ip range 192.168.2.x
all the above work great.

now I want to connect switch #1 to switch #2 using only one port
optic fiber port 23.
how can i configure a port that transmit receive both vlans.
thanks

What you are looking for is called VTP (in cisco terms, at least).

I did find this:http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/network-switches/f/866/p/19348813/19759080.aspx

This describes exactly what you are trying to do.

Please let me know if this helps.

It's called trunking.
For example use port 24, go into port configuration, set mode to trunk.
Of course, must be done on both switches.

I don't have the option trunk on the dell switch
here is the manual http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/network/pc28xx/en/ug/pdf/ug_en.pdf
maybe you can point me at the proper dell's terminologie?

Looks like you're right, the 2824 dowsn't support trunking.
I guess you'll have to use 2 connections.

For example:

Configure port 23 on both switches for VLAN 1
Configure port 24 on both switches for VLAN 2

Connect 23 to 23 and 24 to 24 (you'll probably need to use crossover cables)

Take a look at pages 133-134 on the PDF.

LAG is a vlan feature and may be what you are looking for, I believe...

To summarize what I needed to do.
Create my vlans. in vlan membership and set the wanted ports of each vlan as U.
to do the trunking part, flag the port you want to act as a trunk as T for each VLAN .
in vlan port setting, set the PVID acordingly to the vlan it belongs...
for the trunked port, let the PVID to 1.
