Question is: Will the 1/10Gb-F VC support a 10GbE DAC cable connected to the XFP port?

We got a question from the field.

 

Please help,

 

Looking to create a 10GbE connection using a Direct Attach Cable from a 1/10Gb-F Virtual Connect module to a ProCurve 6600-24G-4XG Switch

 

Question is will the 1/10Gb-F VC support a 10GbE DAC cable connected to the XFP port?

 

This document states the ProCurve 6600 will work with the; J9302A HP ProCurve 10-GbE XFP-SFP+ 5m Direct Attach Cable
