Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The config should be the same as if it was a copper port.

    Thanks for your answer :) i am going to use single mode fiber between 2 cisco switches , do i need to do anything to bring the ports up ? like changing speed ? keep alive commands ? mtu ? and once the ports are up and i have connectivity between the 2 switches the DHCP will be carry to my new LAN with no issues since i am going to use the same range of IP's at the new LAN . sorry if my questions sound kinda lame i just didn't use a fiber before normally i configure Copper ports or serial interfaces at the routers .
