The protocol is publically documented by the vendor.

It is described in terms of frames such as <STX> ... <ETX> as though on a serial stream and doesn't mention TCP ports or USB endpoints.

If connected wirelessly, the device offers an address in the range 169.254.1.x, and appoints itself Port 2000 appears to be the only open port (nmap -p-) and telnet to that port returns the connection greeting '*HELLO*'
