Basic Configuration
5.8.3. Copying Parameters to Several Serial Ports (Text Interface Only)
If you are configuring the RSM-8R4 via the Text Interface, the /CP (Copy Parameters)
command can be used to select identical parameters for one or more serial ports.
When the /CP command (Copy Port Parameters) is invoked, the unit will display a menu
which allows you to select parameters, and copy them to all or several RSM-8R4 serial
ports. The Copy Port Parameters menu can set all parameters for the specified port(s),
or define only a select group of parameters for a specific group of ports.
The /CP command is not available via the Web Browser Interface.
The /CP command will not copy parameters to the Network Port.
The /CP command is only available to accounts and ports that permit
Administrator level commands.
The /CP command cannot be used to set Port 1 to Passive or Buffer Mode, or
to disable the Administrator Mode at Port 1.
To copy parameters to all or several RS-232 serial ports, proceed as follows:
1. Access the RSM-8R4 command mode via the Text Interface, using an account and
port that permit access to Administrator level commands.
2. Invoke the /CP command at the command prompt; the Copy Parameters menu will
be displayed. The following command line options are available:
a) Copy to All Ports: Type /CP [Enter].
b) Copy to a Range of Ports: Type /CP m-n [Enter]. Where m and n are port
numbers that specify the desired range. For example, to copy parameters to
ports 3 through 7, type /CP 3-7 and press [Enter].
c) Copy to Several Ports: Type /CP m,n,x [Enter]. Where m, n and x are the
numbers of the desired ports. For example, to copy parameters to ports 3, 5,
and 7, type /CP 3,5,7 [Enter].
d) Combination: To invoke the /CP command in a manner where a range
of ports is specified, along with several ports outside the range, type /CP
m,n,x-z [Enter]. Where m, n, x, and z are port numbers. For example to
copy parameters to ports 3 and 5 plus ports 7 through 9, type
/CP 3,5,7-9 [Enter].
3. Selecting Parameters: To select parameters to be copied, key in the number for
the desired parameter, press [Enter], then follow the instructions in the submenu.
4. Clear Menu: After defining several parameters, if you wish to clear the /CP menu
and start again, type - (dash) and press [Enter], the menu will be reset.
5. Exit Without Copy: To exit from the Copy Parameters menu without copying
selected parameters, type X [Enter]. The RSM will return to the command prompt.
6. Copy Parameters: When you have finished selecting parameters, press [Esc] to
copy the selected parameters.
7. The RSM-8R4 will display a confirmation prompt before executing the copy
command. Type Y to proceed or N to cancel the command, and then press [Enter].
