Ports configured as Buffer Mode ports will collect data from the
connected device and store it in the CMS's statically allocated

communication parameters (e.g. baud rate, parity, etc.).

7.3.1. Reading Data from Buffer Mode
To retrieve data from Buffer Mode Ports, you must first
determine which port buffers contain data. To check port buffers
for stored data, access the Command Mode and type /S [Enter]
to display the Port Status Screen.
To retrieve data from buffer memory, go to a free Any-to-Any or
Modem Mode Port, access the Command Mode (Supervisor
Level), and issue the /C command using the following format:
/C xx [Enter]
Where xx is the number or name of the port buffer to be read.
