    Hi everyboby,
    It's possible configure a fiber optic port in 100Mbits on 6509 to connect
    with another switch ( in esample a intel 510T that have a module 100FX fiber

    The only command that I found is " speed nonegotiate ", but the state
    remaning DOWN....

    GigabitEthernet1/9 is down, line protocol is down (notconnect)
    Hardware is C6k 1000Mb 802.3, address is 0017.0e88.9c50 (bia
    MTU 1500 bytes, BW 1000000 Kbit, DLY 10 usec,
    reliability 255/255, txload 1/255, rxload 1/255
    Encapsulation ARPA, loopback not set
    Keepalive set (10 sec)
    Full-duplex, 1000Mb/s, media type is SX

    Thank you

  2. Hi,
    We had some kind of same problem here with a media converter.
    When you write there "no negotiate" then the port do configure mid or
    mid-x. So maybe you mut switch the 2 optical fibers.

    So long Alexander

    Don't take this answer as 100% absolute, but I have never seen a
    configuration like that and I have worked on several hundred 6500s.
    There are 24 port 100FX blades out there that will do what you are
    desiring, but I do not think you can set a gig fiber port to 100 meg.

    That would be my expectation. There are some multispeed fibre ports out
    there but I haven't seen reference to them for the 6500. A quick look
    interfaces_and_modules.html> offers no comfort. The 100Mbps SFPs are a
    different product from the 1000Mbps ones and there are no 100Mbps GBICs.
