You can't simply put a port into trunk mode as you do in IOS, you have
to define all the VLANs that you want to carry on that port.
For an access port you do:
int g0/6
int vlan 123
 untagged g0/6

For a trunk port you go:
int g0/6
int vlan 123
 tagged g0/6
int vlan 124
 tagged g0/6

and so on. You can also use "int range vlan" to cover many VLANs in one
command. (untagged and tagged relate to the way the ethernet frames are
coming into the switch)
