Scorpion can send or receive
commands and values to or from other applications over Internet
Messenger. Thus Scorpion can be configured and managed from external
systems. These can also be other Scorpion systems. An external system may
also send commands, set values in or receive values from Scorpion.

connection for the Internet Messenger command protocol is
shown below. The window will continuously show the commands and values
transmitted between Scorpion and the external system.
