    I have this switch and it supports trunking.

    If I'm understanding this correctly, I could potentially trunk the two
    ports coming from my backup server at the switch... would this
    essentially double the bandwidth of that connection?

    Anyone know how this is done on the switch.. under trunking I see ID
    01, then a bunch of members.. say 1-8, then ID-2.. members 9-16.. etc
    (up to the 48th member/port).

    If my ports going into the switch were say 7,8.. would i just enable
    ID01 which as members 1-8 (and check off 7,8).. what does this do
    exactly? How does my server's dual ports become "one" with one ip
    address?

    Thanks
