    Connecting an NSM4000 Appliance to the Network

    Although the NSM4000 appliance has four Ethernet interfaces, only two can be used; the other two Ethernet interfaces are reserved for future use.

    • On the NSM4000 appliance, the Ethernet interfaces that can be used are labeled 3 and 2. You can configure an NSM4000 appliance to use only the Ethernet interface 3, or both Ethernet interfaces, 3 and 2.

    To connect the appliance to the network:

    1. (Optional) Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist and connect the strap to an external ESD point.
    2. Plug one end of the Ethernet cable into the port labeled 3, as shown in Figure 1, on the front panel.

    3. Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the network.
    4. (Optional) If you are using both Ethernet interfaces, plug one end of the Ethernet cable into the port labeled 2.
