◆ Buffer Parameters: When the Buffer Mode is selected, the following mode
specific parameters may be defined:
➤ Date/Time Stamp: Enables/disables the Time/Date stamp for buffered data at
this port. When enabled, the RSM-8R4 will add a time/date stamp whenever
five seconds elapse between data items received. (Default = On.)
➤ Buffer Connect: When enabled, the RSM-8R4 will continue to Buffer
captured data while you are connected to this Buffer Mode port.
(Default = Off.)
• Direct Connect: Direct Connect allows users to access the RSM-8R4 and
automatically create a connection between the Network Port and a specific serial
port by including the appropriate Telnet port number in the connect command (e.g.
Port 5 = 2105). For more information, please refer to Section 10. As described
below, the Direct Connect feature offers three options. (Default = Off.)
◆ Off: Telnet users will not be able to employ the Direct Connect feature to
connect to this port.
◆ On - No Password: Telnet users will be able to employ the Direct Connect
feature to connect to this port without entering a password.
◆ On - Password: Telnet and SSH users will be able to use Direct Connect
to connect to this port, but will be required to enter a password before the
connection is established.
Note: If "On - Password" is selected, and Administrator level commands
are disabled at the Network Port, then only accounts that do not permit
Administrator level commands will be allowed to establish a direct connection
via the Network Port. If Administrator level commands are disabled at a given
port, then that port will not allow access by accounts that permit Administrator
When the Port Parameters menu is accessed via the Text Interface and the
Direct Connect feature is enabled, the menu also lists both Direct Connect port
numbers for this port (port numbers are not listed in the Web Browser Interface.)
◆ Telnet Port: The Telnet port number employed to create a Direct Connection to
this port using standard Telnet protocol.
◆ SSH Port: When Direct Connect (Item 31) is set at "On - Password", this line will
display the Telnet port number used to create a Direct Connection to this port
using SSH protocol. For more information, please refer to Section 10.
◆ Raw Port: The Telnet port number that is used to create a Direct Connection to
this port using Raw Socket protocol.
