Question: 
Where do I find user manuals on ONT-6xx and ONT-8xx mainframes?
Answer: 
Following are a list of methods that can be used to open operating and/or remote control reference manuals on ONT-6xx and ONT-8xx mainframes and measurement modules depending on how they are being accessed.   Mainframe manuals: 1) On ONT-603/606/612 mainframes with a High End Controller (HEC) and ONT-804/812 mainframes, click the FireFox icon on the Linux desktop panel to open the mainframe home web page. Select the "MANUALS" tab and click the link for the mainframe operating manual, or select the "REMOTE CONTROL REFERENCES" tab and click the link for the mainframe introduction and command reference manual. 2) Open ONT Scout and under the Web/Config column, click the house icon for the measurement module to open its home web page. Select the “MANUALS” tab for operating manuals or the "REMOTE CONTROL REFERENCES" tab for SCPI command reference manuals. Select the "Mainframe" tab, and click the link to open the associated PDF document. Note that on ONT-601, ONT-602 and ONT-6xx B mainframes, the home web page of the measurement module may also be opened directly by entering its IP into the address field of a web browser. Measurement module manuals: 1) Open ONT Scout and under the Web/Config column, click the house icon for the measurement module to open its home web page. Select the “MANUALS” tab for operating manuals or the "REMOTE CONTROL REFERENCES" tab for SCPI command reference manuals. Click the link corresponding to the layer you want to reference to open the associated PDF document. The PDF file can be saved to your PC if desired. Note that on ONT-601, ONT-602 and ONT-6xx B mainframes, the home web page of the measurement module may also be opened directly by entering its IP into the address field of a web browser. 2) Connect to the ONT GUI for the measurement module and load the application if not already running. Click the tab for the layer you are interested in (i.e. PHYS, OTN, etc.), select the Help tab under that layer, and click on the Show button next to the Operating Manual or Command Reference Manual location to open the associated PDF document.
