Hi Jeff (A&H) the point about STP is interesting, would that also affect the original Ethersound + control data type of setup.
The reason I ask is I use a Gigabit switch at either end of a lump of fibre to form the link between surface and rack, now I am sure it has Spanning Tree “on” which I believe allows me to have a CAT5 link in place simultaneously just in case some accident befalls the fibre.
I have run this system for quite some time without any issues (I think), I do limit the bandwidth available to each link to 100mb I seem to be able to disconnect either the CAT5 or the fibre (one at a time of course) without any perceptible loss of audio or control.
I admit I am not a networking genius so I sure could be making a mistake or I could just be confused.
