Identifying network ports

After identifying the cables you need for your network, identify the ports in the McAfee device that you connect these cables to.

Warning: Always turn off any laser sources before you inspect fiber connectors, optical components, or bulkheads. Fiber optic laser radiation might be emitted from connected fiber cables or connectors. Do not stare directly into fiber optic equipment. Always keep a protective cap on unplugged fiber connectors.

The devices contain management ports so they can be managed from McAfee ESM. In addition, your Nitro IPS and ADM devices contain trusted and untrusted ports to connect the device to the trusted and untrusted sides of your network.

The following images identify the management ports and the trusted and untrusted ports on your devices.

NTP-1260



For NTP-1250 devices, port 2 = Mgmt 2 and port 3 = Mgmt 1.

ERC-1260, APM-1260



For APM-1250 and 1260 devices, ports 4–7 are collection (sniffer) ports, not management ports. For APM-1250 devices, port 2 = Mgmt 2 and port 3 = Mgmt 1. For ERC-1250 devices, ports 4–7 are management ports.

NTP-2600/3450-4BTX, 3460



For NTP-1250 and 1260 devices, ports are collection (sniffer) ports, not management ports.

DAS data cables



Step 1 - Create connection between 1U HA receivers



Step 2 - Connect 1U HA receivers to the network switch/router



Step 1 - Create connection between 2U HA receivers



Step 2 - Connect 2U HA receivers to the network switch/router
