7.2. Passive Mode
Passive Mode Ports function the same as Any-to-Any Mode Ports, but do not
allow access to command mode. A Passive Mode Port can communicate with
other ports, but cannot enter command mode, and therefore cannot redeﬁne
parameters, display status, or connect or disconnect ports. The Passive Mode
is the default at Serial Ports 3 and above.
Passive Mode Ports can be connected by accessing command mode from a free
Any-to-Any or Modem Mode Port, and invoking the Third Party Connect or
Resident Connect Command as described in Section 7.1.1. Passive Mode ports
will not buffer data, except during baud rate conversion.
Note: In order to ensure Supervisor access to important command
functions, the Passive Mode is not available to Port 1 (the SetUp Port.)
