Is Smart Cat installed on the M series with the installed operating panel and will the M series be able to use CAT Commands thru the Ethernet Port on the unit?

I can see developing a software keypad macro program based on CAT commands thru the Ethernet port to create a button macro facility if it does.

CAT is always installed on the PC and connects to the radio via the network.  That is where the programs you use that are CAT enabled run, so the CAT interface runs there too.

No programs are allowed to be installed on the radio.

And if you want to control the radio, CAT is not the method of choice because it is very limited in scope.  Use the network API.
