The AKD command source (DRV.CMDSOURCE) is set automatically by the EtherCAT/CANopen master controller. There is no need to set this in Workbench when using the fieldbus. And there is no need to read DRV.CMDSOURCE to verify that it's set correctly as long as there is nothing configured in the drive that would change it, such as a digital input. Set the fieldbus mode of operation with object 6060h and let that automatically set the correct command source.
EoE = Ethernet over EtherCAT
This allows communication between Workbench (installed on the EtherCAT master PC) and the AKD using Telnet communication over the EtherCAT network. It allows connecting to the drive with Workbench without needing a separate PC or Ethernet port.
