b) Third Party Connect: To connect any two ports (other than your resident port), type
/C nn NN and press [Enter]. Where nn and NN are two CPM port numbers or port
To connect Port 5 and Port 6, from a third port with "All" command capability, type
/C 05 06 [Enter].
To connect a Port named "SALES" to a Port named "MODEM", from a third port
with "All" command capability, type /C SALES MODEM [Enter].
When the /C command specifies the port name, it is only necessary to enter enough letters to
differentiate the desired port from other ports. 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".
6.1.2. 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 has been
enabled, a No Activity Timeout can be used to disconnect resident ports or third party ports.
• Port Names are case sensitive. When invoking the /D command, make certain to
note the case of each letter of the Port Name.
• In the DTR mode, the DTR signal will drop for approximately 250 ms after a
disconnect has occurred.
1. Resident Disconnect: A 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 would be used to disassociate the two ports. A Resident
Disconnect is initiated by invoking the Logoff Sequence.
a) The default Logoff Sequence is [Enter]+++[Enter].
b) If the default Logoff Sequence is not compatible with your application, the Logoff
Character can be redefined using the /P (Port Configuration) command. For example,
if the Logoff Character is re-defined as @, the new Logoff Sequence will be
