13.1. Command Conventions
Most commands described in this section conform to the following
• Text Interface: Commands discussed in this section, can only be
invoked via the Text Interface. These commands cannot be invoked via
the Web Browser Interface.
• Slash Character: Most RSM commands begin with the Slash
• Apply Command to All Ports: When an asterisk is entered as the
argument of the /D (Disconnect) or /E commands (Erase Buffer) the
command will be applied to all ports. For example, to erase all port
buffers, type /E * [Enter].
• Port Name Wild Card: It is not always necessary to enter the entire port
name. Port names can be abbreviated in command lines by entering the
ﬁrst character(s) of the name followed by an asterisk (*). For example, a
port named "SERVER" can be speciﬁed as "S*". Note however, that this
command would also be applied to any other port name that begins with
• Suppress "Sure?" Prompt: When the /D (Disconnect) or /E (Erase
Buffer) commands are invoked, the /Y option can be included to override
the "Sure?" prompt. For example, to disconnect Port 8 without displaying
the Sure prompt, type /D/Y 8 [Enter].
• Enter Key: Most commands are invoked by pressing [Enter].
• Connected Ports: When two ports are connected, most RSM commands
will not be recognized by either of the connected ports. The only
exception is the Resident Disconnect Sequence
(Default = ^X ([Ctrl] plus [X]).)
• Conﬁguration Menus: To exit from a conﬁguration menu, press [Esc].
The only exception to this rule is the Copy Parameters Menu (/CP), and in
that case the [Esc] key is used to conﬁrm the copy operation.
