Hi there - this may seem a silly question.... I have a 4507R Core Swich conncted to several 2950G Switches. We need to add in a another office location that is already connected to the distribution rack (where the 2950's are) by fibre and I was hoping I could use the second GBIC port on the 2950 to connect to a new 2950G GBIC in the new office location.
That is - the 2950G in the distribution rack will have 2 GBIC's connected - 1 to the core switch and 1 to the down stream 2950G. Is there anything special about these ports being always referred to as UPLINK ports? I have done something similar in connecting 1 2950G to another 2950 but using ethernet on a standard port - it is just that this office is conencted by fibre.
We are looking at replacing some legacy 3Com gear running on 100Mb fibre that is already in place - hence we do not want to run new Cat5e cable.
