I also posted this on reddit and got a promising response but since this might also be interesting for this community and to increase my chances of succeeding, I decided to try my luck and also post this here.
The backstory goes like this: On the quest to build a low power pfsense...
Hello, folks. I have a Mikrotik CRS317 with 16 SFP+ cages. I have stuff for the 10G connection I need to make, but there are several 1G ethernet devices I need to hook to it as well. I've tried a couple of SFP modules, but while there is information in Webfig that the module is present, it will...
Hello STH. I'm just getting started with a home server and hit a stumbling block that I could do some help with.
I bought some mismatched 10G nics for peer to peer over DAC between my r720 server and clients. Works fine. Now I need more distance so want to try fibre so bought another chelsio...
Hello Lovely internet land.
I'm currently configuring:
Dell R510, Ubuntu 18.04 with a Mellanox ConnectX-2 (2x SFP+)
LB4m ---[Cat5e]--- WiFi AP ->) (<- Laptop
I have my Internet coming into a port on a LB4m which goes into a Bonded Pair of SFP+ which...
i just got a Quanta LB8 Switch with 48 SFP+ Ports. The Problem is that my whole network is currently 1G copper (but i have 4 SFP uplinks on my switch).
I need a simple way to integrate my "new" 10G Switch into my network. I thought SFP modules would work in a SFP+ port but i seems...
After a bit of a fight with one of my PC's which utterly refused to detect the Mellanox at all ( turned out to be a BIOS issue with Agesa ) I now have them up and running.
I'm getting about 380Mb per second transfer under Windows 10 Pro from an 8 Drive Raid 6 array on a 9361 to a PCIe...
I ordered some SFP-H10GB-CU3M compatible (supposedly) DACs from fs.com, and although they're nice and thin, and work with my Mellanox Connectx-3 cards in my NAS', they are not compatible with my P81E 10GbE cards in my UCS servers. Can anyone recommend a good DAC in 3-5m distances to connect my...
I need to build a server with a port to connect a 1Gbps single mode fiber. There seems to be little PCI-e cards available that offer 2 ports (i'm looking for either 2 or 4 ports for expansion) SFP cages where I can use any optics.
Question is, will a 10GbE nic work with SFP optics (instead...
Is there difference in physical form between SFP28 optical and SFP/SFP+ ?
Should SFP28 optical module (like the one in the following link) fit into SFP/SFP+ cage ?
I am trying to direct connect 10GBe cards and having a heck of a time.
I'm connecting short runs via SFP, two ConnectX2 cards. They occasionally see each other.
1 GB network is 192.168.3.xxx
10GB network is 192.168.10.xxx with manual IPs set.
In the 10GBe network all I have specified in...
