Use the Connections tab (Figure 1 and Figure 2) to connect to the network engine, determine which network engines are online, and log connection errors. Figure 1 shows the NCT when the NCT is started, prior to discovery of network engines and prior to connecting to a network engine.

When you start the NCT, the Connections tab appears as the default screen. Prior to connecting to a network engine, the NCT displays a red banner with Disconnected displayed on the banner. Also, only the Connections and About, Etc. tabs are available prior to connecting to an engine.

The Connections tab presents different options depending on whether you are using the NCT in Normal mode or Advanced mode. The Advanced mode includes all of those options present in Normal mode, as well as options that are only available in Advanced mode. All options are shown in Figure 2 and described in Table 1.
