7.1. Any-to-Any Mode
Any-to-Any Mode Ports can be connected to other Any-to-Any,
Passive, Buffer, or Modem Mode Ports by accessing Command
Mode and issuing the /C Command. All ports can be configured
for the Any-to-Any Mode. Note that the Network Port is always
configured for Any-to-Any Mode.
7.1.1. Port Connection and Disconnection
The CMS provides communication between devices without the
requirement that both devices use the same communication
parameters. This allows you to connect devices that use
dissimilar baud rates, parity, handshake, and etc.. The CMS
converts data rates and other parameters, eliminating the need to
select common parameters for all connected devices.
126.96.36.199. Connecting Ports
Two different types of connections can be made between CMS
ports; Resident Connections and Third Party Connections.
·Resident Connections: Your resident port issues a /C
command to connect to a second port. For example, Port 4
issues the /C command to connect to Port 5.
·Third Party Connections: (Supervisor Mode Only) Your
resident port issues a /C command to create a connection
between two other ports. For example, Port 1 is your
resident port, and Port 1 issues a command to connect Port 2
to Port 3.
·Third Party Connections can only be initiated from
a port with Supervisor Level command capability.
·The RS232 Ports cannot employ the /C command
to initiate a connection to the Network Port.
·If a port has accessed Command Mode using the
Port Password (User Mode), then that port will
only be able to connect to other ports that share the
same port password.
