My network manager changed this server's connection from a regular

What calculation did you do that led you to the 1600000 number?

The formula I'm aware of is VLAN ID * 1000 + device instance. You don't mention what VLAN you're trying to connect to, but since the PPA number
doesn't end in '3', it's not going to be using 'ce3'.
I was told to add three zeroes onto the VLAN's ID which is 1600, so
by that method, I get ce1600000
What's the device instance?
