Question: 
Where do I find user manuals on ONT-5xx mainframes?
Answer: 
The operating and/or SCPI command reference manuals may be accessed on ONT-5xx mainframes using any one of the following methods. 1) Click the ONT-5xx User Manuals icon on the Linux desktop to open the local HTML file in Firefox. Select the “MANUALS” tab for operating manuals or the "REMOTE CONTROL REFERENCES" tab for SCPI command reference manuals. Select "Mainframe" or the module type tab as appropriate for the required manual(s). Note that the legacy (non-layered) module manuals are found under the "Other Modules" tab. Click on the link corresponding to the manual or layer you want to reference, and the PDF document will open. 2) When operating ONT remotely over a network, open the ONT-5xx home web page (enter IP of ONT into URL field of browser). Select the “MANUALS” tab for operating manuals or the "REMOTE CONTROL REFERENCES" tab for SCPI command reference manuals. Select "Mainframe" or the module type tab as appropriate for the required manual(s). Note that the legacy (non-layered) module manuals are found under the "Other Modules" tab. Click on the link corresponding to the manual or layer you want to reference, and the PDF document will open. The PDF file can be saved to your PC if desired. 3) Connect to the ONT application GUI, load the application for the measurement module if not already running, select the tab for the layer you require the manual (i.e. PHYS, OTN, etc.), select the Help tab under that layer, and click on the Show button next to the Operating Manual location or Command Reference Manual location to open the PDF document. If the remote Java Web Start application GUI was opened, you may save the PDF file to your PC if desired.
