HP Procurve Switch trunking

I have HP Porcurve 2510G switches.
I’d like to “trunk” 2 or more ports from one switch to the next.
My question is:
If I trunk ports 1&2 on switch A do I also need to “trunk” the corresponding ports on switch B?  
It seems to work with or without...

Thank you

Yes, you should configure same way in both ends
-that is (Non-protocol-)trunk to (Non-protocol-)trunk or
LACP to LACP
First configure, then connect in order to avoid network-loops.

If you don't configure them as a trunk then you can end up with spanning tree issues at switch B because it looks at each link as an individual connection while switch A considers it a trunk between the two.

You should configure the remote ports with the same LACP, tagging and VLAN config as the local switch.

Not sure about the question... :)
- Yes, you need to configure trunking on both ends.
- You can trunk port 1-2 of switchA to ports 23-24 of switchB for example.

In the world of WAN, QoS is a pretty important topic for most, if not all, networks. Some WAN technologies have QoS mechanisms built in, but others, such as some L2 WAN's, don't have QoS control in the provider cloud.
