Stacked 3400cl - 2 fiber uplinks in a trunk - load balancing

If you have two 3400cl switches each with one fiber uplinks back to a central location. Can you use stack management to stack the switches and trunk the two fibers together? Can I uses stack management or do I need to use a physical stacking cable, i'am not sure if you can physically stack these switches.

Hi

You can use Ethernet ports for Uplinks or Stacking or Cascading.

Just imagine:
Switch1 3400 connected by fiber to central.
Switch2 3400 connected by fiber to central.

Switch1 connected by Ethernet port to Switch2.

and Just enable spanning tree.

Good Luck !!!
