Connect ethernet switches through Sphereon 4700 & 4500?

We have two fiber switches for our SAN, a Sphereon 4700 and 4500 connected between two buildings over SMF.

Is it possible to connect two Dell PowerConnect switches on both sides together through the Sphereon switches??

I have some test Powerconnect switches with a multimode SFP in them. Connected together directly, they work fine. But when I plug them into the Sphereon, there is no link light.

Is there a setting i am missing or is this not feasible?
