Hello Muratc,

Please take a look on the KB60811 - which might help you.

Besides the KB that Bruno refers, I will tell you my personal experience with FOK:

1) If you are working with Gigabit speeds please read attached KB, Gigabit and Fail Open Considerations item.

2) In FOK there is a white LED that indicates comunication between sensor and FOK. That LED won´t turn on until you put ports in "Enable".
