Hi,

General mode = unconfigured port
Access Mode = listen to only one vlan (the one indicated into a command right on that port)
Trunk mode = will accept packets from all vlans (or a subset) and leave a vlan tag on the pachet when it leaves the switch port

please note that this is "cisco" meaning

Other brands may vary

hope this helps
