You will need both transmit and receive to establish the Ethernet link even if the data is only being sent in one direction.
We are facing the same problem, have you found a way to do it? Thanks!
Please refer to my post below. Thanks.

Thank you for contacting Intel.
The Intel® Ethernet Server Adapters with fiber optic connector requires that RX and TX ports be connected. The network adapter won't connect when only 1 port (RX or TX) is connected.
