Default Dewalt 618 vacuum attachment?

I have a Dewalt 618 plunge router I'm having difficulty hooking up to a vacuum. Is there a simple answer how to do that, bracket of some sort?

The DW618 plunge base has an over size post with a cap on the top end. Remove the cap and push the end of the vacuum hose on. The post is hollow and designed to act as a vacuum port. I have never needed a bracket for it.
