RSM Series; Remote Site Managers - User’s Guide
To Connect ports, proceed as follows:
1. Access command mode via the Text Interface.
2. Invoke the /C command to connect the desired ports.
a) Resident Connect: To connect your resident port to another port,
type /C xx [Enter]. Where xx is the number or name of the
port you want to connect. The RSM will display the numbers of
the connected ports, along with the command required in order to
disconnect the two ports.
Example: To connect your resident port to Port 8, type
/C 8 [Enter].
b) Third Party Connect: (Supervisors Only) To connect any two ports
(other than your resident port), type /C xx XX [Enter]. Where
xx and XX are two port names or numbers. The RSM will display
the numbers of the two connected ports.
Example: To connect Port 5 to Port 6, access command mode at
a third port that permits Supervisor commands (using an account
that also permits supervisor commands), and invoke the following
command: /C 5 6 [Enter].
• Resident Connections: RS232 Ports are not allowed to initiate a
Resident Connection to the Network Port.
• Third Party Connections: RS232 Ports are not allowed to connect
another port to the network port. For example, Port 1 is not allowed
to connect Port 3 to the Network Port.
When the /C command speciﬁes the port name, it is only necessary to enter
enough letters to differentiate the desired port from other ports. Type an
asterisk (*) to represent the remaining characters in the port name. For
example, to connect your resident port to a port named “SALES”, the connect
command can be invoked as /C S*, providing no other port names begin with
the letter “S”.
