Trunking traffic

                my LAN setup is running on VLAN1, now I have added layer 3 switch to run intervlan routing. On access layer I have some switches which are connected on access port not trunk port, do I need to configure Trunk Port on all switches as I will be configured more VLANS. Or access port will pass the VLANs traffice as well

No access port will not carry Multi vlan traffic. Please configure them as trunk port.

Let us know if you required anything more...

On layer 3 switch, you can configure int vlan but to route traffic to another switch with multiple vlans you need trunk config.

Switch(config)#interface Vlan2
Switch(config-if)#ip address 10.1.2.1 255.255.255.0
Switch(config-if)#no shutdown

And trunk config on you trunk port

Switch(config-if)# switchport mode trunk

Switch(config-if)# switchport trunk allowed vlan

thanks

am aware of this basic config, my question was that, can an access port between two switches route multiple VLANs traffic or nor. I have here dozen of Access switches who are being connected to Agregation L3 switch on access ports (No Trunks) and we are running intervlan on Aggregation switch (Layer3).

On access switches multiple VLANs are running, if there is no trunk ports configured then how switches make route multple vlans traffice
