Port 1 is the Primary WAN port. Port 2 is the Secondary WAN port. Ports 3 through 6 are LAN ports.

Blue-colored ports are assigned to the network you are viewing. Green circles indicate that the appliance detects a link on the port. Grey-colored ports have active links and are associated with a different network.

Hovering your mouse cursor over each port's icon will display additional information.
