Just interested in experts opinion here. Clearly If its ONLY1 vlan I dont have to trunk Access port each end will be fine and work.
My question is really "Whenever connecting switches together over a switch port should i by best practice trunk the ports anyway even if only 1 vlan in play and not set the links as access ports in same vlan?"
Of course when i trunk native vlan match on each end.
Is there more to the answer than simply Yes trunk so that you can easily (without disruption) add vlans to trunk if more vlans are required in the future? - lets say 2 x 2960s here thanks
