The NCT requires access to Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) port 9910 to communicate between the computer running NCT and the network engine. For details about opening this port, refer to the ADS, ADX, and SCT Installation and Upgrade Instructions (LIT-12011521) or the Metasys Server Installation and Upgrade Instructions (LIT-12012162) .

The NCT connects to any network engine across routers and over the Internet as long as any firewalls the device has to cross have TCP Port 9910 open; however, SNMP startup messages only work on the same physical network segments.

The NCT can be run in an advanced mode, which has more features and function than the normal mode. See Component overview and Using the Advanced mode for more information.
