    how do I make a port participate on all the vlans on a cisco switch?
    is this even doable?

    we have an old avays router/switch and we plan to replace them with
    cisco 6509 sometime soon. we currently route between some 35 vlans on
    a avaya switch/router. I see there are several ports on the avaya
    router that are made part of ALL the existing vlans on the

    these are the ports that connect closet switches to the avaya (with
    fiber). I assume with the 6509 I'd have to setup similar thing.

    You must create a trunk port under interface configuration and choose
    encapsulation dot1q.

    eg: Config-if# switchport mode trunk
    Config-if# switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q

    The syntax of these commands varies depending the Cisco model
    but this is the idea.
