1 When using UDP protocol with NCMs, you must specify Port 11001 as being used. For multiple N1 networks, you must use a different port number for each network.
2 In Bidirectional communications, both devices initiate requests.
3 In Unidirectional communication, only the originating device initiates requests (assuming synchronous response is allowed in the request).
4 You can configure multiple N1 networks on the NIE. Refer to the N1 Migration with NIE Technical Bulletin (LIT-1201535) for details.
