In hp terms the vlan is either tagged or untagged. HP uses a different terminology for a trunk port (Link Aggregation) than does cisco.

Essentially you create VLANs and either make them tagged or untagged for 802.1q.  You can also create an HP trunk port (link aggregation port such as LACP or static link aggregation with multiple ports and assign which VLANs are tagged and untagged on it on the HP side

this link will show you how to configure lacp link aggregation on hp side (etherchannel equivalent on the cisco side just use lacp on cisco as well).  This will allow for redundancy

Next you want to configure tagging on both sides (803.1q trunk)

For vlan tagging you can use the following HP guide, look at page 2-27

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/networking/software/2510-AdvTrafficMgmt-Aug2006-59914762.pdf

You can use the menu command in the CLI to get to the menu and get it done that way.  I would also recommend to use STP if not already configured to ensure that system is blocking correctly.

First things first: 'trunk port' means a completely different thing on HP and Cisco.
Cisco calls ports with tagged vlans a trunk port, and aggregated links etherchannel.
HP calls ports with tagged vlans a tagged port, and aggregated links trunks.

So, on the HP side, you'll need to assign vlans as tagged (and possibly untagged) to a port to make it play with a Cisco trunk port. Also, you don't assign vlans under the interface, you assign interfaces under the vlan. But it's really simple:
vlan 1 
   name "DEFAULT_VLAN" 
   no ip address 
   no untagged 1-49,50
   exit 
vlan 31 
   name "vlan31" 
   tagged 50
   exit 
vlan 30 
   name "vlan30" 
   untagged 1,11-12,30,38,44,49 
   ip address 192.168.30.231 255.255.255.0 
   tagged 50
   exit 
vlan 23 
   name "VLAN23" 
   untagged 2-10,13-29,31-37,39-43,45-48 
   tagged 50
   exit 
vlan 29 
   name "VLAN29" 
   tagged 50
   exit 

Open in new window

Port 50 is a tagged port here.

Just to add to what paulsolov said, the way I think about it (if it helps you understand) is:

For Cisco, you assign VLANs to ports.  For HP, you assign ports to VLANs.
Native VLAN (in Cisco talk) = Untagged (in HP talk)

As an example, to get a port between a Cisco switch and HP switch to talk VLANs:

Cisco Switch

interface GigabitEthernet0/1
 switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
 switchport mode trunk
 switchport trunk native vlan 10
 switchport trunk allowed vlan 10,20,30


HP Switch (using port 1)

vlan 10
 untagged 1
       '1' is the port number
vlan 20
 tagged 1
vlan 30
 tagged 1
