Using the CLI to Configure PTP and Network Interface Parameters

The TCA6000 and TCA6500 Timing Clients are equivalent with respect to these features. The TCA6500 Timing Client has the additional function of having an integrated GPS receiver. Reference to the TCA6000 Timing Client applies also for the TCA6500 Timing Client. This document addresses the configuration for the PTP functionality in order to communicate with the TCA8000 Timing Server or third-party Grandmaster. Since the Ethernet physical layer and packet protocol (UDP/IP) are part of the connectivity this is also covered in the document even though this is a general requirement in order to access also the management interface of the system. Similarly this applies to the VLAN which is optional. All configuration commands are preceded by config and status commands preceded by show, except where noted with an asterisk (*).
