  Using halrmt:

  loadusr halrmt {-- --port <port number> --name <server name> --connectpw <password>
                  --enablepw <password> --sessions <max sessions> -ini<inifile>}

  With -- --port Waits for socket connections (Telnet) on specified socket, without port
            uses default port 5006.
  With -- --name <server name> Sets the server name to specified name for Hello.
  With -- --connectpw <password> Sets the connection password to 'password'. Default EMC
  With -- --enablepw <password> Sets the enable password to 'password'. Default EMCTOO
  With -- --sessions <max sessions> Sets the maximum number of simultaneous connections
            to max sessions. Default is no limit (-1).
  With -- -ini <inifile>, uses inifile instead of emc.ini. 

  There are six commands supported, Where the commands set and get contain HAL
  specific sub-commands based on the commands supported by halcmd. Commands and 
  most parameters are not case sensitive. The exceptions are passwords, 
  file paths and text strings.
  
  The supported commands are as follows:
  
  ==> HELLO <==
  
  Hello <password> <cleint> <version>
  If a valid password was entered the server will respond with
  
  HELLO ACK <Server Name> <Server Version>
  
  Where server name and server version are looked up from the implementation.
  if an invalid password or any other syntax error occurs then the server 
  responds with:
  
  HELLO NAK
  
  ==> Get <==
  
  The get command includes one of the hal sub-commands, described below and
  zero or more additional parameters. 
  
  ==> Set <==
  
  The set command inclides one of the hal sub-commands, described below and
  one or more additional parameters.
  
  ==> Quit <==
  
  The quit command disconnects the associated socket connection.
  
  ==> Shutdown <==
  
  The shutdown command tells EMC to shutdown before quitting the connection. This
  command may only be issued if the Hello has been successfully negotiated and the
  connection has control of the CNC (see enable sub-command below). This command
  has no parameters.
  
  ==> Help <==
  
  The help command will return help information in text format over the telnet
  connection. If no parameters are specified, it will itemize the available commands.
  If a command is specified, it will provide usage information for the specified
  command. Help will respond regardless of whether a "Hello" has been
  successsfully negotiated.
  
  
  HAL sub-commands:
  
  echo on | off
  With get will return the current echo state, with set, sets the echo
  state. When echo is on, all commands will be echoed upon receipt. This
  state is local to each connection.
  
  verbose on | off
  With get will return the current verbose state, with set, sets the
  verbose state. When in verbose mode is on, all set commands return
  positive acknowledgement in the form SET <COMMAND> ACK. In addition,
  text error messages will be issued when in verbose mode. This state
  is local to each connection.
  
  enable <pwd> | off
  With get will return On or Off to indicate whether the current connection
  is enabled to perform control functions. With set and a valid password,
  the current connection is enabled for control functions. "OFF" may not
  be used as a password and disables control functions for this connection.

  config [TBD]
  
  comm_mode ascii | binary
  With get, will return the current communications mode. With set, will
  set the communications mode to the specified mode. The binary protocol 
  is TBD.
  
  comm_prot <version no>
  With get, returns the current protocol version used by the server,
  with set, sets the server to use the specified protocol version,
  provided it is lower than or equal to the highest version number
  supported by the server implementation.
