Please help

I am having some trouble trying with some switches on site.

In one location we have a HP 2510-48 port switch which we need to connect to a Cisco 3560 switch. The problem I have is that we have issues connecting fibre to the HP switch, so I have decided to attached a CAT 5 to Fibre convertor at this end and another to the cisco switch.

My question is, someone told me that you can not connect a HP switch to a Cisco switch, is this true or do I just need to confirgure something on the ports.

Hope this makes sense.

Thank You

I see no problems regarding this setup, but just to make sure verify that you use the same protocols un trunk links (if any)
802.1q and not ISL and you have the same flavour of spanning tree.
