Linking HP Procurve Switches
We have had a fibre connection go down between 2 HP Procurve switches. As a temporary measure until I get the fibre repaired I have tried to use UTP connected to the GIG ethernet ports on each switch. The cable run is well under 100M, but I cannot get a connection between the switches on these ports. However I can get a connection by just plugging the cable into a normal 10/100 port on each switch.
As you can imagine this is really slow, so I would prefer if I could get the GIG connection between the 2. I terminated the cable ends the same as a normal patch lead and have also tried a crossover config.
I would appreciate any advice on this.
