22.214.171.124. Disconnecting Ports
There are three different methods for disconnecting ports, the Resident
Disconnect, the Third Party Disconnect, and the No Activity Timeout.
Providing the Timeout feature is enabled, a No Activity Timeout will
disconnect resident ports or third party ports.
Note: The "DTR Output" option in the Port Parameters menu
determines how DTR will react when the port disconnects. DTR can
be held low, held high, or pulsed and then held high.
1. Resident Disconnect: Disconnects your resident port from another
port. For example, if you are communicating via Port 3, and Port 3 is
connected to Port 4, a Resident Disconnect is used to disassociate the
two ports. The RSM offers two different disconnect command formats;
the One Character Format and the Three Character Format (for more
information, please refer to Section 5.7.2.):
Note: The Resident Disconnect methods discussed here cannot be
used to terminate a Telnet Direct Connection. For more information,
please refer to Section 8.3.4.
a) One Character (Default): Enter the logoff character once
(Default = [Ctrl] plus [X]). It is not necessary to enter a carriage
return before or after the logoff character.
b) Three Characters: Uses the "[Enter]LLL[Enter]" format, where
L is the logoff character. For example, if the logoff character is "+",
then the disconnect sequence is [Enter]+++[Enter].
c) If the default disconnect command is not compatible with your
application, both the command format and logoff character can
be redeﬁned via the Port Conﬁguration menus, as described in
2. Third Party Disconnect: (Supervisors Only) The /D command is issued
from your resident port to disconnect two other ports. For example,
if your Resident Port is Port 1, a Third Party Disconnect is used to
disconnect Ports 3 and 4.
Note: The Third Party Disconnect method can be used to terminate
a Telnet Direct Connection. For more information, please refer to
a) The /D command uses the format: /D xx XX [Enter], where xx
and XX are the numbers of the ports you wish to disconnect.
