Hi Joe,

A second cable is the quick answer.

dSNAKE is a Layer 2 protocol, it doesn’t like sharing a switch with third party traffic. You would need to create a dedicated VLAN in a managed switch, however managed / smart switches use a number of Layer 3 protocols which might conflict with dSNAKE. So unless you are willing to spend time troubleshooting and check for errors, I’d recommend a second cable.
