How to put 53230a into free run mode?

I'm switching over from 531xx counters to 532xx counters and I've encountered a problem.  Basically, I want to set up the counter via HPIB, but then have the counter "free run" until I'm ready to take data. This was very easy to do with a 53181/53132 using "INIT:CONT 1" and "INIT:CONT 0" commands. A 53230 seems to go out of free run mode as soon as it goes into remote mode, and I can't find a command to put it back in free run.  The only solution I've found is to put the counter into local mode via the front panel button.  Does anyone know a way to make it free run via computer control?
