Yes, trunking is setup at the port. But I thought, vmware only sees
the vlan, it's connected to (i.e. eth0.86) and has nothing to do with
the vlan functionality itself? As far as I understand, on eth0.86
everybody looks onto a normal network as the vlan splitting itself is
done before this in the kernel?
