Specify if channel is active or silent


Specify whether the channel operates silently. By default SilentMode is false. In this mode, the channel both transmits and receives messages normally and performs other tasks on the network such as acknowledging messages and creating error frames.

To observe all message activity on the network and perform analysis without affecting the network state or behavior, change SilentMode to true. In this mode, you can only receive messages and not transmit any.
