Do I need to set Trunking on both Cisco switch?

Hi,

I am learning networking and I noticed that when I configured trunking for one of the switch ports, I was able to ping the other PC on the other switch. I was wondering if this is by design or would I still need to go into the other switch and configure a trunk port to match both switches match?

Thanks.

Most modern Cisco switches are set to autonegotiate by default, so if you turn on one side the other side will match. But I like to hard-set both sides for clarity. also sometimes some switches don't play as nice and won't negotiate cleanly.
