Gb2Ec and VC module

Is it possible to connect GbE2c switch to uplink port of VC Flex-10 for access to the VC-Enet uplink port?

Re: Gb2Ec and VC module

If you mean connect the GbE2c to one port of the VC Flex10 module and then have that traffic go up another one of the uplink ports of the Flex-10, then the answer is no. The VC Flex-10 module does not forward traffic between uplink ports. It is not a switch.

If you don't need 10 Gbit/s uplink, you could I suspect go the other way - connect the VC Flex-10 uplink port to the GbE2c and then the another uplink port of the GbE2c to the rest of the network.

Or, if you need 10 Gbit but do not need VC or FlexNIC functionality, you could use a ProCurve 6120XG instead of the VC Flex-10 module.

Final option is connect both the GbE2c and the VC Flex-10 to an "external" switch.
