Command and Telemetry Server

Introduction

The Command and Telemetry Server application provides status about the interfaces and targets instantiated in your OpenC3 installation. Intefaces can be connected or disconnected and raw byte counts are returned. The application also provides quick shortcuts to view both raw and formatted command and telemetry packets as they go through the OpenC3 system.
