I’m adjusting my server IP address, protocol and port in a serial port periodically (i.e. every 5 seconds) to check a server for information. When do these settings apply to the system after I change them? Do I need to perform a restart or save for the changed settings to apply. Are all settings stored in flash? If so, then I cannot alter them frequently as the flash will fail soon.
Also, what are the connection options in serial port settings for: (e.g. System BootUp or Serial Data In)? Do I need to change that setting to Serial Data In?
