02 - Remote Control Terminal Software
LabSat 3 can be remote accessed and controlled using most terminal software that supports a PORT 23 Telnet connection. Tera Term Pro is one example. Once connected, commands can be manually entered into a terminal program to remotely control LabSat 3. Commands are linked with the ‘:’ character and are executed on reception of the carriage return character.
