If you purchased your Iris MX at the same time as the complete Iris M™ system, these steps were done before the system shipped. If you purchased the Iris MX later, there are a few settings that need to be confirmed on your computer.
The first is that your license supports the Iris MX, second is that “Jumbo Packets” are enabled, and third is that the connection can pass through the firewall.
Please follow the steps below to confirm, and change as necessary, these settings.
