Xbee Communicatino

I have 2 XB24 modules version 10E8 out of the box. With XCTU i can query the device from the pc settings, i can also read and write the parameters (read defaults and just write back out the defaults). However, from the terminal window, I get nothing back from the device. As i understand the documentation if i send +++ in the terminal window the device should respond OK, and then I can issue AT commands and get responses back. I get nothing at all. I’m not trying any communications between modules, just trying to get basic command to a single device working before I go for communication between devices

Press the reset button once on the board then try again.
