I've never used the second port for an HMC. I've always put all HMCs on the first port as "open network". To me it makes no sense to be more concerned who can connect to your service port on your power system than who can connect to the port where your payroll, customer, engineering, etc data are accessed.
There have been multiple times I've needed to attach to that directly from a remote location, and not through an HMC.
