Hi guys,

I have a Cisco 3750x switch. I basically need to set up a trunk port on one of the ports. It is a stacked switch and it is port number 35 on switch 2, which reads as Gi2/0/35 when I type 'show vlan'.

As it stands, this port is currently on VLAN3. But it is set to untagged. I believe I need to set it to be capable of receiving traffic tagged traffic on VLAN3 and also untagged traffic. The untagged traffic is on a network range that is not set up as a VLAN. Does it make sense?

Thanks for helping
