|Function:||Enables or disables password protection for on-the-fly commands |
|Post-initialization value:||0 (disabled)|
|Change takes effect:||After reboot|
|First introduced:||Earlier than "baseline" V3.14/V3.51|
On-the-fly commands (network-side parameters and instructions) do not require prior authentication through Login (L) command . On-the-fly Password enables password authentication specifically for on-the-fly commands, i.e. for the Parameter (P) command that carries them.
When On-the-fly Password is 1 (enabled) and the Password (PW) setting is set (not <NULL>) the network host must supply a valid password with every Parameter (P) command it sends (see this command's description for more information on how to do this).
On-the-fly Password is irrelevant when the On-the-fly Commands (RC) setting is 0 (disabled) because in this case the DS doesn't accept on-the-fly commands at all.
