When remote controlling the Agilent 53220A Frequency Counter, the following situation occurs:

After setting the device to external triggering (TRIG:SOUR EXT) the device will wait for a signal applied to the external triggering input.
When we perform a READ? this will understandably not work. On this moment the test should be aborted, sending the ABORt command.
However, the device will wait infinitely for an external triggering and is not responding to any command.

A communication log of this situation is attached to this item.
How can the device state being set back to the idle state by a remote command?
