SFP+ Broadcom card not working


Aug 22, 2020

I've bought a Bradcom BCM57810S SFP+ card.

I've put in my server SuperMicro, in my network configuration I'm able to see the two SFP+ interfaces enp4s0f0 and enp4s0f1, but I change my interface from cat cable to sfp+ I'm not able to reach the proxmox.
I've try some stuff but nothing is working.

It there a problem with the chipset of the sfp card?

Proxmox version 8.0.4.

Is there any Proxmox list for compatibles NIC?

I'm having some issues with the BCM57810S SFP+ card as well. I can see the adapter, and configure it without issue from the GUI, and it reports fine from the command line with ethtool etc. But when I try to communicate from node to node (just a simple ping) I get nothing. I'm trying to figure out if I've done something wrong, or these cards have issues with proxmox/debian.
