Summary

From the "Management Network" screen you can configure the management network settings for your device. These settings only affect the device's management port and its ability to communicate with the SMS. They do not modify filters or otherwise change the way traffic is inspected.

Note: The menu options are interactive and as such they will change depending on the type of device being managed.
