I have a Cisco 2960s switch and a non Cisco switch call "Wah Wei" brand in my company, would like to know is that possible to form a trunk link in between ? So that all the vlan can be regconize between the two switches by connecting only one physical LAN cable, and later will have 3 vlan created in the two switches.
     If it is not a Cisco switch for both, I need to create a IEEE 802.1 instead of ISL ? What are the command to create trunk link ? Switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q ?

switchport mode trunk
switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
switchport trunk nonnegotiate

You don't want to use ISL ever anymore, unless you are connecting an old cisco switch that only supports that.

Huawei runs VRP, which is practically Comware.
