If I can't use the ETCLink Port on the back of the Facepanel, how do I get Link messages into and out of the system?


The only way to get Link messages from the racks onto the wire is to connect them to a node that has an ETCLink port.  (the facepanel does not count in this case)

Link functionality in Emphasis will be WYSILink only. Error messages can be seen on the server screens in the LINK mode.
