    Connect directly X710 to XL710 with QSFP Breakout Cable




      I have a question regarding to the direct connectability of NICs without any switch.

      I have a computer equipped with Intel ethernet CNA X710-DA4FH (4x10gbps) and another computer with Intel ethernet CNA XL710-QDA1 (1x40gbps). They are connected directly using Intel X4DACBL3 Ethernet QSFP 40G QSFP+ to 4x10G Breakout Cable. Theoretically, is it a possible setup? Unfortunately, I could not make it work.


      Thanks in advance!
