yes you can do that.

you would require 1000 BASE-SX module which requires SC connectors on the 2950.

While on the other hand the 3560G would require SFP i.e GLC-SX-MM= module and the LC connector

I do not see of any pitfalls in this scenario and we have used it successfully in our networks.

HTH, rate if it does

So you would like to connect GBIC to SFP, you need Multimode Duplex Fiber Optical cable with SC-LC connectors. If SFP to SFP you need the same cably type with LC-LC connectors.



Please rate me if I helped.
