Mezz card Interconnect connectivity

I want to do external loop back test of mezzanine card on a c class blade. My blade onboard administrator shows that Mezzanine card M1 is connected to Int 3. The interconnect is a GbE2c with 5 ports. TO put the mezzanine card in loopback do i need to connect external loopback plugs to all ports of the Gbe2C or any specific one.

putting loopback plugs on the external ports of the GBE2c will not be the same thing as putting a loopback plug on a NIC. There is not a way to do that physically with the GBE2c's installed in a c-Class enclosure.

If you are just trying to run diagnostics from the Network Configuration Utility, the Loopback test should work without loopback plugs.
