As the instrument authorization is sided (SX/DX), the way to control the switches is as follows:

 DX: Ctrl-a 2 (return) Ctrl-a 4 (return)

- For ARGOS operation:
 SX: Ctrl-b 1 (return) Ctrl-b 3 (return)
 DX: Ctrl-b 2 (return) Ctrl-b 4 (return)

To query status: Ctrl-p (return)

To disconnect and exit telnet: Ctrl-] (return) quit (return)
