Ping test from a stack of 2 ICX 7450-24 going through a CTC Union FIB1-1000TS (fiber to ethernet) to a Nortel Baystack 470-24T

[ Edited ]

First, let me explain how it is plugged. Take note it is a lab test for now, but it will go to production soon enough.

 

The Nortel Baystack is the fiber to fiber connection on port 25. The only setup the switch has is the IP, which is 192.168.10.1 .

 

The converter receives data through fiber from the baystack and changes it to ethernet for the brocade stack, that is all it does. The switches are set to auto and full duplex. (LLF and LBT are self testing options.)

 

The stack of brocade is receiving the ethernet signal through 1/1/1.

 

Nothing else is plugged into the test for now, since all we need to do is manage a ping between the equipments.

Hi @KParadis

 

for first, I've never worked with such converter, however see follow FAQ Please:

 

http://www.ctcu.com/support/content/view/129/25/

 

is the iOS loaded on ICX-7450 Layer2 or Layer3 ?

[ Edited ]

The current iOS loaded is a layer 2, but the switch still has both in memory so I could switch should it be necessary.

 

*edit* I did see that FAQ before, I tried with both configurations. For now, I tried connecting the Brocade straight to the baystack with an ethernet cable. There seem to be some configuration on either side that prevents the ping, my guess is the STP seeing a loop between two switches and locks it all up.

 

I've been working on removing the STP and see if it changes anything (Will update when done.)

@KParadis

 

the CTC converter you want to use show as very Old, the same for the Nortel Switch.

 

I've my doubt such Old component are supported with ICX

Re: Ping test from a stack of 2 ICX 7450-24 going through a CTC Union FIB1-1000TS (fiber to ethernet) to a Nortel Baystack 470-24T

The error was found: We used a straight ethernet cable between the converter and the switch while it required a crossover to function.

 

 

It now works and pings properly.
