    Switch compatibility

    Hi,

    Does anyone know if things like trunks, vlans and qos are compatible between procurve and netgear switches? possibly a daft question, but i maybe purchasing a mixture of procurve and netgear in the very near future.

    thanks

    Its standard set so providing you give both the Netgear's and procurves a firmware update beforehand they should be ok.

    You may want to use LACP though.

    As Tallwood says as long as you use the industry standard LACP rather than the proptiety vendor ones they should talk fine. Sometimes it can be a bit infuriating to set them up though given differences in different brands default configurations of passive/active and timeouts.
