    Back Port Not Connected?

    Jon Hradsky

      I am trying to create a connection from my fiber cable to a device. I have a single blue strand connected as follows:


      DevPort => FrontPort

      BackPort => Fiber Cable


      When I try to run a fiber trace, I get an error telling me that BackPort had nothing connected to it. As far as I can tell, it isn't possible to connect the FrontPort to the BackPort (if they are connected to other things) because it is assumed a FrontPort connects to a BackPort. Am I missing something? I should also mention that the fiber cable is connected as shown above on both ends; it runs from a device to a device.
