Hey guys, I am new to mitsubishi software and hardware and i need help connecting to my PLC.

My setup goes as following:
PC to HMI Via USB

HMI to PLC via Ethernet

the HMI is a Mitsubishi Electric GOT2000 Gt2107-wtsd and the PLC is an fx5u-32M

I dont know how to go about connecting to the PLC so that I can setup buttons and light to make sure everything is working fine, I dont have a full understanding of GX Works 3 and Designer 3 so this is why I am looking for some help please and thank you!
pictures below of the whole system.

I had a look through all those links thank you for the help but what these are showing is how to simulate them together but I am looking to actually physically use the HMI to control the PLC if that makes sense

GS2107 differs from Gt2107 with stripped-down functionality. Everything else is the same.

When writing a project to the panel, select USB instead of Ethernet

I don't have a GT2107, but these projects should work.

You are an absoulte legend and life saver, that last video link you sent was exactly what i was looking for i didnt know i had to manually write to the plc via the laptop ethernet before plugging it into the HMI, thank you so much you saved me a very long day! :D
