The configuration file must contain a Communications Port Parameters record. In addition, all fields must be present.

The format for the Communications Port Parameters record is:

CP,<port>,<baud rate>,<parity>,<data bits>,<stop bits>



Identifies the record as a communications port parameters record.


Physical serial port selection. Valid settings are 1 to 9.

<baud rate>

Throughput rate. Valid settings are hardware dependent, and may range from 1200 to 115000.


Parity setting. Valid settings: None, Odd, Even.
