Using the CLI to Configure PTP and Network Interface Parameters

The TCA8000 and TCA8500 Timing Servers are equivalent with respect to all features except the oscillator type is either an OCXO or Rubidium, respectively. This document addresses the configuration for the PTP functionality in order to communicate with the TCA6x00 or third-party Timing Client. 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 (*).
