how do i hook up a cisco 5500 and netgear switch? both gigabit switches....the netgear has SFP modules. is SFP required to hook up two gigabit switches? can I just run a cat5 between the two from any two ports? (the switches both have copper gigabit, and the cisco also has optical gigabit).
my associate keeps saying to figure out how to hook them up with SFP connectors....what does this mean, and what are the advantages to this, if this is not the only way.
