All Spirent wireline simulators come with an application S/W  DLS Terminal.  DLS terminal S/W allows you to connect to any

Use the Terminal controls and select the Attach Button.  When you are attached you will see a grayed command line turn white  here is where you enter commands.
If you enter the command *idn? you will receive " SPIRENT COMM INC, <unit ID>, <Serial number>, <Version of the control firmware>"  example below.  To attach to another unit
you need to select the Detach button then select another communication interface then select the Attach button to connect to it.
