This option asks the user to select an TCP HL Logical Link. It then asks the user to choose between the HLO port and the HL7 1.6 port. It then sends an HL7 message to that other system. If a commit ack is returned then that demonstrates that there is remote connectivity AND the remote HL7 server is in operation.
