    I have a Catalyst 4507 and several 3750's with 1000BASE-SX, 100BASE-FX,
    and 1000BASE-T intefaces that I want to set up in a lab so I can start
    testing and configuring them. I am thinking of purchasing some
    Multimode fiber optic patch cables, 6' and I am wondering if there will
    be any problem with the switches being so close to eachother or if
    there is anything I need to look out for.

  2. Shouldn't be a problem. You might overdrive LX modules with patch cables
    that short, but SX and 100BASE-FX have no such issues.
