Silkworm 3850 to Juniper EX4200 No Sync

Hi,

 

I'm trying to connect a Brocade SIlkworm 3850 to a Juniper EX4200 but there seems to be a problemen with the speed. The Brocade sees the SFP but keeps saying there is no sync. I have set both devices on 1Gbit/s full duplex and auto negotiate but unfortunately no connection. I have tried this setup with the following SFP modules:

 

Juniper Network 740-011613 rev 01

Finisar FTRJ8519P1BNL

 

Also i tried to connect the Brocade to a Dell PowerConnect 5324 but there was also no sync.

 

Anyone now how to fix this?

 

Kind regards,

Lex

Hello,

 

Does those devices are running Fiber Channel?

Are you trying to connect the DELL and Juniper to Fiber Channel conections or Ethernet connections?

Hi,

 

Thanks for the reply,

 

Yes both devices are running Fiber Channel. I am trying to connect the Brocade to the Juniper through Fiber connections. The juniper has a 4x1GbE SFP+ uplink module.

Hello,

 

Juniper EX4200 has only Ethernet connection, isn't it?

Brocade 3850 is FC (Fiber Channel) not Ethernet.

It has Ethernet port but only for management.

 

Both are using fiber for the connection but not the same protocol.
