Pulse counting on EtherCAT

How does one read the data from a digital pulse counter card (9411) on an EtherCAT chassis (9144) FPGA from real-time on a PXI system? As far as I can tell, EtherCAT FGPA does not support DMA FIFO or reading front panel controls.

The 9144 chassis does not support specialty digital either so you need to implement the counter on FPGA and transfer the data with User defined variables from FPGA to RT. Luckily that's done in an example already shipping with the driver.
