5.3.3. Command Availability


The "Commands" field in the Port Configuration menu allows the user to specify which commands will be available to each Any­to-Any Mode or Modem Mode port. The user can either select "All" commands or only "Basic" commands. The "All" option is normally selected for administrator ports; "Basic" is normally selected for user ports, and allows limited access to commands. Section 8.3 summarizes "All" and "Basic" commands.

Note that the Status Screen (Command /S) will include a plus sign (+) next to the port number when a port has been granted access to All commands.

In the default state, Ports 1 and 2 are the only ports with access to "All" commands. When ports are configured, at least one port should be granted access to "All" commands.
