The Prisma SD-WAN ION 7000 uses the controller port for
communication between the device and the controller.
The ION 7000 uses the controller port
to communicate with the controller and monitor the network. By default,
DHCP is factory-configured on this port. The controller 1 port should
be connected to a copper 1G ethernet port. This port should have
access to the outbound internet access to the Prisma SD-WAN controller
service on port 443 (HTTPS).
After this port is connected and the ION 7000
powered on, the ION 7000 automatically connects and registers with
the controller. After registration, the ION 7000 is available to
claim and configure in the Prisma SD-WAN console.
