No. The TFL Management Node is placed behind the firewall/NAT and does not need fixed public IP. It connects to the Directory and Authentication Server which maintains its own addressing method. All communication between the NOC site/engineer and the TFL Management Node on the client LAN occurs via the Directory and Authentication Server. This makes the entire implementation extremely secured as the TFL Management node is not accessible directly without going through the Directory and Authentication Server.
