Installing GBIC module for first time

Hello,

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,

Pedro

Pedro-

Once the SFP is inserted the port is treated like any other port.

interface GigabitEthernet0/1

description Trunk to SWITCH

switchport trunk native vlan 919

switchport trunk allowed vlan 601-607,610,613,641-643,751,770

switchport mode trunk

speed 1000

There is no special configuration for enabling it (other than a no shutdown). Treat it like any other port.

Hope that helps.

The 2960 should support the following Cisco SFP.
