      Description

      When we tested the MT Hexapod today I was trying to get it to publish a new "configuration" value by changing the configuration. What I observed:

      1) Using the CSC to change the acceleration and pivot point did not seem to work. No configuration data was output and the EUI (GUI) did not show the new values.

      This could be an error in the CSC or in the low-level controller; it is hard to tell since the low-level controller does not provide any information if it rejects a command.

      2) Using the EUI (GUI) to change values did not produce a new configuration message.

      I don't see how this can have anything to do with the CSC.

      Note: the CSC is seeing and correctly parsing an initial configuration message from the low-level controller when that controller connects. Thus I am reasonably confident that if the low-level controller outputs a new configuration message that the CSC will parse it and output the updated configuration.

            For the record: Te-Wei reports that the CSC commands to change configuration are only accepted in the ENABLED/STATIONARY state. That matches what the CSC does (it rejects those commands in any other state).
