Hi Robi

The dSnake protocol is complient with standard Ethernet equipment, therefore you can use a switch with dSnake.

What is the purpose you would like to use the switch for?

if the switch is unmanaged then only 1 point to point link can be actively connected at one time.

If you wish to have other data on the same switch as dSnake then you must put the dSnake data in its own VLAN so that it is isolated from the other data being carried through the switch. Also some protocols such as Spanning tree must be turned off.

If it is to extend the length over 120m then this is also possible with a switch every 100meters, or media converter to fiber.

There will be more information available about dSnake to come in the future.
