GPIO assertion from telnet


We’ve been using Digiconnect MEs for a number of years. Our typical application uses them connected to a MCU with a large number of ports. Recently we’ve come up with a few applications which only require between 3 and 5 ports and very slow data rates (i.e. ports only toggle every 5 - 6 minutes). We’ve been hoping to use the GPIO of the Digiconnect via telnet. After searching through the documentation, it is not obvious if one can actually set or clear a GPIO in output mode from telnet. Is such possible? Is there a particular mode the Digiconnect must be in to allow the assertion of the GPIO via telnet?
