17.3. Command Syntax
Most commands conform to the following conventions:
• In the command line examples shown in this section, square braces
([ ]) are used to indicate an optional argument, and greater than /
less than symbols (< >) are used to indicate a required argument. For
example, in the sample command line ^B[,port]<,action>,
"port" would be an optional argument and "action" would be a
• Commands normally begin with the ASCII "Control B" character
(written as ^B throughout this manual).
• To temporarily suppress the Command Echo for any command, use the
^A character in place of the ^B character. For example, if Command
Echo is enabled and Command ^B03 (Send Site ID) is invoked,
NetLink II will echo the command back to the polling device and send
the Site ID message. If ^A is substituted for ^B (e.g. ^A03), the Site
ID message will be sent, but the command will not be echoed back to
the polling device.
• Each command is invoked by pressing the [Enter] key.
• A comma (,) is used to separate a command from its options or
parameters (e.g. ^B01,10).
