Programming in Progress
|Top Previous Next|
Inband (TCP) network programming session is in progress;
The DS is in the serial programming mode
Three separate status messages are displayed for three possible forms of DS programming: serial, out-of-band (UDP), and inband (TCP). Serial programming is considered to be in progress whenever the serial port of the DS is in the serial programming mode. Out-of-band (UDP) or inband (TCP)programming session is considered to be in progress after the network host has logged in using a corresponding access method (out-of-band or inband)- see authentication*. Inband (TCP) access method is only used in the address book mode (see access parameters for the address book mode).
All three forms of programming are mutually exclusive- see programming priorities.
The DS Manager collects DS status information (and detects DS presence) using the Echo (X) command. Whether or not any form of programming is in progress is determined from the state of the s flag in the command response. Network logins are performed using the Login (L) command.
* Just sending commands that do not require prior login does not constitute a programming session.
