crossover cable

It didn't work for me with a 1950 and a 2950, using 2 different
crossover cables.  So much for using crossover cables these days.

I use crossover cables to connect several two node clusters on
2850/2950's using the Broadcom NICs.

I was surprised to find out that using crossover cables from server to
server doesn't even work.  Is there something about the Broadcom NICs
that changed this?

 

 

Thanks,
