Two net card FEMTO newbie questions (mine is now en route from Poland to The Netherlands):
First my current setup:
modem/router => MikroTik switch => fiber => Intel fiber dual NIC => server PC
MikroTik switch => CAT6 => audio PC with NAA
Before everything was fiber, but I prefer the sound with copper downstream.
Currently both control and audio PC's are Linux.
(1) I was planning to mount the net card FEMTO in the audio PC. Is that the way to go? Or does anyone advise to put it in the control PC (which is another room, optically isolated)?
(2) Assuming I put it in the audio PC, and given that the control PC has an Intel dual SFP NIC + stock RJ45 NIC, how would I go about bridging?
Any advice welcome!
