The Status Screens
8.5. The Port Diagnostics Screen
The Port Diagnostics Screen provides more detailed information about each port. To
display the Port Diagnostics Screen, access the Text Interface command mode and type
When the /SD command is invoked by an Administrator or SuperUser level account,
the Port Diagnostics Screen will display the status of all ports. If the /SD command is
invoked by a User or ViewOnly level account, then the Port Diagnostics Screen will only
display the status of the ports that are specifically allowed by that account.
The Port Diagnostics Screen lists the following items:
• Port: The Port Number.
• Name: The user-defined name for each port.
• Status: The connect status for each port.
◆ When the port is connected, this column will list the number of the other port
connected to this port. If the column contains an asterisk, this indicates the port
has accessed command mode.
◆ If the connected port is listed as "Nn" (where "n" is a number), this indicates that
the RS232 port is connected to the Network port. The numbers indicate which of
the available Telnet sessions is being used (for example, "C-06".)
• Baud: The baud rate selected for each port.
• COM: The Data Bits, Parity, and Stop Bits selected for each port. For example,
"8N1" indicates Eight data bits, No parity, and One stop bit.
• HS: The handshaking (flow control) mode for each port.
• Mode: The user-selected Port Mode.
• BUF: The amount of data (in bytes) currently stored in the buffer for this port.
• CTS: The High/Low status of the CTS line at the RS232 interface.
