6.3.1. Reading Data from Buffer Mode Ports

 

To retrieve data from Buffer Mode Ports, the user must first determine which port buffers contain data. To check port buffers for stored data, access the Command Mode and type /S [Enter] to display the Status Screen. The Status Screen’s "BUF" column indicates the amount of data currently stored in the buffer memory for each port.

To retrieve data from buffer memory, go to an Any-to-Any Mode or Modem Mode Port, access the Command Mode, and issue the /C (Connect) command using the following format:

/C nn [Enter]

Where nn is the number or name of the port buffer to be read.

To clear data from the buffer, go to an Any-to-Any Mode or Modem Mode Port with "All" (administrator) command capability, and issue the /E (Erase Buffer) command using the following format:

/E nn [Enter]

Where nn is the number or name of the port buffer to be cleared.
