5.5.2. Port Modes
The CMS offers four different port operation modes; Any-to-Any
Mode, Passive Mode, Buffer Mode, and Modem Mode. The Port
Modes function as follows:
·Any-to-Any Mode: Allows communication between
connected ports. Any-to-Any Mode Ports can be connected
to other Any-to-Any Mode, Passive Mode, Buffer Mode, or
Modem Mode Ports by accessing the Command Mode and
invoking the /C command (see Section 7.1.1). The
Any-to-Any Mode is available to all ports.
·Passive Mode: Allows communication between connected
ports, but does not allow access to the Command Mode.
Passive Mode Ports can be connected by accessing the
Command Mode from a free Any-to-Any or Modem Mode
port and invoking the /C command (see Section 7.1.1). The
Passive Mode is not available to Ports 1 or 2 or the Network
Port.
·Buffer Mode: Allows collection and storage of data
received from connected devices. Collected data can be
retrieved by accessing the Command Mode from a free
Any-to-Any or Modem Mode Port, and issuing the Connect
(/C) Command. Note that the Buffer Mode also allows pass-
through communication with the connected device. The
Buffer Mode is not available to Ports 1 or 2 or the
Network Port.
·Modem Mode: Allows communication between connected
ports and simplifies connection to an external modem. A
port configured for the Modem Mode can perform all
functions normally available in Any-to-Any Mode. The
Modem Mode also allows definition of a Hang-Up String,
Reset String, and Initialization String. Any CMS RS232
port can be configured for the Modem Mode. The Modem
Mode is not available at the Network Port.
For more information on Port Modes, please refer to Section 7.
