    I have 4 Cisco ONSs in a SONET ring. The management port on one of the
    ONSs, say ONS-1, is connected physically to my management subnet
    through a Cisco 3750 switch. The management ports on other ONSs are
    not connected to the switch.

    Can someone explain how do the other ONSs know to direct their
    management information to ONS-1? I know they communicate over SDCC
    ( SONET Data Communications Channel) which has OSPF built into it but
    any more insight into this will be greatly appreciated!!

    Thank you very much!!
