    Anyone used SFP to RJ45

    anyone used something like this?

    Stuff-UK - SFPC1110 - StarTech RJ45 Gigabit Copper SFP Transceiver Module Mini-GBIC 100m

    https://www.google.co.uk/shopping/product/6747479337197010526?q=sfp+%20to%20rj45&hl=en&safe= off&bav=on.2,or.r_cp.r_qf.&bvm=bv.44442042,d.d2k&b iw=1517&bih=728&sa=X&ei=6plVUbOkH9GV0QW294HQCw&ved =0CFAQ8wIwAA



    need to go from 2xsmoothwall UTM 1000s into the 2xcore switch(s) which is extreme x670s (48 x 10GB/1GB SFP+)

    obviously there is also the powered kind, but of course I would like to avoid a non rackmountable box and a wall wart if i can.

    So you've got 2 x smoothwall utm's with gigabit copper ports on them and you have core switches which need a transceiver to present a gig copper port to the smoothwalls?

    In that case sure no problem using a module to provide that.

    Wether that particular module is compatible you'll have to double check.

    cool cheers, i'm probably going to go with the HP one I linked. Extreme don't vendor lock so supposedly take anything, I'll order one and we shall see.

    We've always used Extreme, Netgear and HP Gbics on our Extreme Black Diamond and they've worked perfectly. I would probably steer clear of cheap ones though.
