The whole connector is separated into 2 halfes and looks like this:

                    +-----------+
                    |           |
                    |           |_
                    |     O      _|
                    |           |
                    |           |
                    |-----------|
                    |           |
                    |           |_
                    |     O      _|
                    |           |
                    |           |
                    +-----------+

The upper connector's data direction seems to be computer -> glass cable,
the lower one is glass cable -> computer (according to arrows printed on
"Transmitter" (upper one) and "Receiver" (lower one).

On thr right side there are 2 holes (sorry, don't know the english word for
german "Aussparungen";( It's about 25x10mm.
