  1. Hi all, after my complaing about my lack of network access in the workshop ive been tasked with fixing this so ive have some general questions about networking and concerning Ewons so this network will be used for connecting ewons to test products as well as general computer access the plan is to have 7 computer access points as well as 2 points to connect to product lines for testing my intial thoughts were to run 2 cables from our network to 2 routers, 4 computer access points and one line testing connection on 1 and 3 computer access points and one line testing connection on the other so first question is what type of ethernet cable should i use? i assume cat5 is fine, is it worth going for cat6 or is it just a waste of money? and should i be running crossover cable or straight through? do i need any specific routers or will anything do? will i be able to add splitters later down the line and be fine? or should i future proof a bit with more robust routers? my years of avoiding networking at uni has come back to haunt me i know the basics but thats all really thanks to anyone who can offer some usefull information i mention the Ewon units because ive been told that they need to be the only one on their connection to the network, although i dont know how true this is  
  2. hi again every1, ive managed to salvage some parts that have been decommissioned or not used to create a test control box, i currently have a CP1l-EL20 connected to a NB7w tw01b and have an eWON cosy 131 on order for me to play around with, however i recently noticed that the built in cp1l-el20 Ethernet port is FINS only and i am anticipating this causing problems. am i right in thinking that my cp1l will not be able to communicate through my eWON? do i need to get some form of adapter to convert the FINS? or maybe i'm wrong and it will all work. if anyone who knows could enlighten me that would be great, thanks
  3. Looking for ideas on connectivity issues with RSLinx/RSlogix when using an EWON Cosy 131 running on Windows 10. So here's whats up: Was running windows 7, could connect to the EWON VPN and use the ethernet driver in RSLinx to get to the PLC(compact logix). Also used Automation Direct C-more software with no problem as well. Now on Windows 10, the Automation Direct software still works fine, i can ping the PLC and get to its webserver but rslinx/logix will not pick up the plc. I have tried setting up a new ethernet driver to no avail. I also connected a cable directly to the plc from the pc, bypassing the ewon, and rslinx/logix will then see the plc, so rslinx does seem to "work" in windows 10. Any ideas on how to get connectivity back over the EWON VPN? I have these in customer plants and really dont want to revert back to win 7.   Thanks
