description (optional) - Used to identify the device if no hostname is found.

make (required) - Type ? to see a list of supported devices. If your device is not listed, enter native.

Use DHCP? - Specifies whether the device requests a DHCP address from the Local Manager series Local Manager. This command is presented only if a dedicated Ethernet port is installed.

Note: If you configure the device to use DHCP, ensure that the Local Manager is configured to serve DHCP addresses to managed devices. Use the config system protocols DHCP command to change the default (169.254.100.x).

dedicated device IP (required) - IP address of the device's Ethernet interface.

dedicated port IP (required) - IP address of the port's Ethernet interface.

dedicated netmask (required) - Subnet mask for the dedicated Ethernet. Each port must be on its own subnet.
