5.9.1. Network Port Parameters
In the Text Interface, these parameters are accessed via the main Network Configuration
menu (Figure 5.13.) In the Web Browser Interface, these parameters are found by
clicking the "Network Port Parameters" link on the left hand side of the screen to display
the Network Port Configuration Menu.
• Administrator Mode: Permits/denies port access to accounts that allow
Administrator level commands. When enabled (Permit), the port will be allowed
to invoke Administrator level commands, providing they are issued by an account
that permits them. If disabled (Deny), then accounts that permit Administrator level
commands will not be allowed to access command mode via this port.
(Default = Permit)
• Logoff Character: Defines the Logoff Character for this port. This determines
which command(s) must be issued at this port in order to disconnect from a second
port. (Default = ^X ([Ctrl] plus [X]).)
Note: The Sequence Disconnect parameter can be used to pick a one
character or a three character logoff sequence.
• Sequence Disconnect: Enables/Disables and configures the Resident Disconnect
command. Offers the option to either disable the Sequence Disconnect, or select a
one character, or three character command format. (Default = One Character).
• The One Character Disconnect is intended for situations where the
destination port should not receive the disconnect command. When the
Three Character format is selected, the disconnect sequence will pass
through to the destination port prior to breaking the connection.
• When Three Character format is selected, the Resident Disconnect uses the
format "[Enter]LLL[Enter]", where L is the selected Logoff Character.
• Inactivity Timeout: Enables and selects the Inactivity Timeout period for the
Network Port. If enabled, and the port does not receive or transmit data for the
specified time period, the port will disconnect. (Default = 5 Minutes).
• Command Echo: Enables or Disables the command echo for the Network Port.
(Default = On).
• Accept Break: Determines whether the port will accept breaks received from the
attached device, and pass them along to a connected port. When enabled, breaks
received at this port will be passed to any port this port is connected to, and sent
to the device connected to the other port. When disabled, breaks will be refused at
this port. (Default = On.)
