In setup 1, data can be put through the media converter. I verified by using wireshark installed on a lappie connected to the copper end.
but when i connect a 2nd media converter (setup 1b), i cant see the data anymore. I verified by using a line analyzer connected to the fiber end of the 2nd mc.
Why is this so?
Thanks in advance.
