Rule 4: Configure IP Management Before Deploying TCX1000 Devices
Before you deploy either the TCX1000-RDM20 and TCX1000-ILA in your optical network, you must configure IP address on the device so that you can remotely manage and configure it through the proNX Optical Director.
Regardless of which external port a management message is received on, the TCX1000 internal CPU either responds to the message over the port the message was received on, or it forwards the message out one or all of its management communication ports.
