Select TELNET from the START menu.
When IP address assigned to the LG 3803 is "192.168.0.1," enter "TELNET
192.168.0.1."
The LG 3803 and TELNET is now connected.
When TELNET is started, "login:" is displayed. Enter "lg3803."
When "Password" is displayed, enter "lg3803."
The login name and password cannot be changed.
Prefix "rem" to the command listed in Tables 8-4 and 8-5 for run the system.
after the command to read setting value.
Attach "?"
Example 1: When setting the frequency to 500 MHz, output level to -60 dBm,
proceed as follows:
rem □ RF □ 500 ENTER
rem □ LM □ -60 ENTER
* □ is a space. Enter a space between header and data code.
Example 2: When reading the channel being set, proceed as follows:
rem □ CH □ ? ENTER
*Enter a space between header, data code, and "?."
Notes on using Ethernet
This instrument can be controlled via the Ethernet even when operating via the GPIB
interface, or REMOTE CONTROL mode is in operation. When Ethernet is only used,
disconnect other cables.
