I just got a switch (cisco WS-C2960G-48TC-L) and I was trying to figure out what kind of Gbic module I could install in it. I have tried looking through the documentation and I am unable to see a clear answer for me.
I have several GLC-SX-MM modules sitting around and I dont know if they would be any good.
Once I have the physical module covered what are the commands for getting it enabled?? That too I have tried to find in the documentation offered for the 2960G switches and I cant find anything.
I appreciate helping out this green horn,
The 2960 should support the following Cisco SFP.
Cisco SFP Optics For Gigabit Ethernet Applications
Cisco 100BASE-FX SFP Fast Ethernet Interface Converter on Gigabit SFP Ports
Once the SFP is inserted the port is treated like any other port.
description Trunk to SWITCH
switchport trunk native vlan 919
switchport trunk allowed vlan 601-607,610,613,641-643,751,770
switchport mode trunk
There is no special configuration for enabling it (other than a no shutdown). Treat it like any other port.
Hope that helps.
