Command Line Instructions can also be used to control and monitor the functions of the USB hub and attached devices over a VCP (Virtual COM Port). In order to use the command line interface a serial terminal emulator must be installed on the host computer. Examples include
SerialZTermPuTTy, and Minicom

Once you have installed your preferred terminal emulator, please connect to the COM port using 115,200 baud, 8 data bits, No Parity, 1 Stop Bit. Once you get a command prompt (>>), type “help” for a list of commands and their usage, as shown below.

Typing “l” will give equivalent information to LiveViewer (to quit type “q”) and, using the command “logc X”, will output the data to the console every “X” seconds.

To cancel the control log at any time, please type “ctrl-c”.
