This document contains ManxIX's rules and regulations which members must follow. They should be read in conjunction with the Memorandum & Articles of Association which govern members' relationship with ManxIX and are available to members on request.
ManxIX members must advise ManxIX of devices in the path between the ManxIX switch and the member’s Layer 3 terminating device, for example media converters, switches, or connections via third party ethernet providers (psuedowires).
All frames forwarded to a particular ManxIX port from a member must have the same source mac-address. On no account should BPDUs be forwarded to a ManxIX port. Members must ensure their equipment is configured in such a way that a frame received from a ManxIX port is never forwarded back to ManxIX. Interfaces must be configured in untagged access mode. No tagged traffic will be accepted.
