First of all, thanks Tom for your videos, I have learn so much watching them.
Now I’m quite new to SFP(+) cards and transceivers. Based on a older video of Tom, I decided to buy a Chelsio N320E. I end up buying a Chelsio CC2-N320E-SR (came with 2 optic transceivers). I also bought a 10Gtek ASF-GE-T SFP RJ45 transceiver.
I tried the card and the transceiver in a Linux Mint computer and a Win 10 computer. While the card is detected, the computers believe the cable is unplugged!
Can anyone confirm if the 2 assumptions I made are true :
• I can use any type of transceiver (Optic, DAC or RJ45) in a SFP+ card?
• I can use a SFP transceiver in a SFP+ card?
Thus the question, should this combo work?
