Advice on adding fiber GBIC's to 3500 and 2950

    We have built a new building next door, and plan on running both
    buildings on our LAN. We have connected the buildings with a fiber
    run, and we want to add a fiber GBIC to the 3500 XL at the main office,
    and also to the 2950 at the new office. What do I need to do other
    than just physically plug the GBIC's into the ports on the switch? Any
    initialization, etc., needed to tell the switch I am using that port
    now?

    THanks.

    Beyond configuring the port to do whatever you want it to do over that
    link and making sure you shut/no shut the gig ports to bring them
    administratively up then you should be all set.
