Hi Experts,

I was reading on a lab scenario and I see 2 ways . I am not sure which one is the correct one.

SWA(CONFIG)# interface fa0/1
SwA(config-if)# switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
SwA(config-if)#Switchport mode trunk

or

SwA(config)# interface fa0/1
SwA(config-if)#Switchport encapsulation dot1q
SwA(config-if)#Switchport mode trunk

can you please tell me which one is correct ?

1st one, you need the trunk command before you set the encapsulation on it.
