I need to have two separate networks on the computer, one to connect to the PLC and one to use as a VPN connection. I thought of trying the RS232 connection first before I get a network card for the second port (I only have one ethernet port on my computer).
So I looked at the configuration in the offline program (The processor is compact logix),
Under the serial port:
the baud rate is set to 38400
Under user protocol
Protocol is set to ASCII
Under system protocol
Protocol is set to " DF1 point to point"
So under the available drivers, I selected RS232 DF1 driver, selected the com port1 (I am not using any other ports). For the device I selected " PLC-CH0" I am still getting the same error.
Just wondering if it is the cable, I used the standard cable for SLC.
