6.2. Passive Mode

 

Passive Mode Ports function in exactly the same manner as Any­to-Any Mode Ports, but do not allow access to the Command Mode. A Passive Mode Port can communicate with other ports, but cannot enter the Command Mode, and therefore cannot invoke commands to redefine port parameters, display status, and etc..

Passive Mode Ports can be connected by accessing the Command Mode from a free Any-to-Any Mode or Modem Mode Port, and invoking the Third Party Connect or Resident Connect Command as described in Section 6.1.1.1. Passive Mode ports will not buffer data, except during baud rate conversion.

Note:

In order to prevent the user from being locked-out of the Command Mode, the Passive Mode is not available to Ports 1 and 2.
