    I did what @kiteboarder did on 3 cards and worked like a champ through the process.

    My only question is how can I truly test the cards to see if they will appear as full Ethernet devices?

    Hello,
    i bought two Fujitsu single port QSFP cards. MT4099 so ConnectX-3 but i cant exactly figure out which hardware version it is, to choose the right firmware.
    This is the Link i purchased them from:
    Fujitsu ConnectX-3 VPI 1-Port QSFP FDR 56GbE LP - S26361-F4533-L102 | eBay

    Another question. I will use the cards in a server 2019 envirenment just to connect my alsways on server with my optional running server via a Brocase 6610. No special configs with VLans or so. Should or do i have to flash them to ethernet mode?
    Perhaps anyone can help. Would be very kind.

    Thanks a lot!

    Looks like MCX353A-FCBT to me. Change to ethernet mode in device manager (click the network adapter, View->Devices by connection, open the properties for the device 1 up from it)

    Ok this seems to have worked. I uses mighty fohdeesha's example.
    Card is set to ethernet mode as well. I use the WinOF 5.50.51 drivers. But there is now WakeOnLan option.
    When i read right 5.50.51 does not support WOL.
    I tried to use the 5.35 with the latest firmware. but this does not seem to work. the system doesnt use the driver.
    I am running on Server2019 and their only is a server 2016 5.35 driver. Any idea how to get WOL to work? Do i have to downgrade the firmware?
