linking two V1900-8G switches?

Hi everybody.

I suppose this is a rather simple problem to solve.

I was wondering if I could link two V1900-8G, each connected to a couple of computers - and the two connected via SFP fiber optic (just to not have them uplinked on copper).


Can they 'uplink' over fiber, is there anything else I should consider or would that setup work in the way described above?


Any comments and help are greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Hi, I see no problem there... just install appropriate SFP transceivers on both sides. Only consider that last RJ45 port is shared with the SFP port (dual personality).
