Resolution
Unity can be configured to prompt for connection mode so that the programmer can select what he desires. Below are definitions of the choices.

in programming mode.  If another user is logged into the PLC as the programmer,
the user is offered the option to connect in monitor mode.

  "Mandatory Programming Mode".  The terminal connects to the PLC. If another user
is logged into the PLC, the connection is refused, no monitor mode offer is made.

  "Use Monitoring Mode". The terminal connect to the PLC in Monitoring only mode.
