    - To set a trunk port on a 2960 switch the switchport mode trunk command is used.

    - It allows all VLAN information to pass down the link.

    - What will happen if we use the switchport mode trunk command?

    - Using this command, the interface changes to permanent Trunking mode.

    - The port enters into a Dynamic Trunking Protocol (DTP) negotiation to convert the link into a trunk link even if the interface connecting to it does not agree to the change.

    - The switchport mode trunk command is the only method implemented in trunk configuration.
