Current setup is a Trendnet 10/100 fiber converter in satellite building connected to a SRW2048 Linksys (Cisco) switch with an ethernet cable.
The SRW2048 switch serves our satellite building.
The fiber runs to our main building and is connected to our main network via another
Trendnet 10/100 fiber converter.

We want to connect the SRW2048 switch directy to the fiber using a SFP transceiver and a Tripplite SC to LC adapter fiber cable.

All of our SFP Transceivers are 1000M GE. WE have worked with all the duplex-speed-flow control options and never seen a link light.

Do we have to match our SFP devices to the other end (Trendnet 10/100fiber converter)?

Also wanted to ask if TX and RX lines have to match up when using multi mode fiber? We assume they do.

Thanks for any help..........
