I have a client that is on the same computer as the gateway. I need to know if that client is logged in with a certain role in order to for them to be able to start a process. The process is started with physical push button through a PLC tag. The people at the facility this is at like to log in on their computers at their desks and don’t always log off so I need to filter them. I also need to filter designer on the computer in question.
So, I need to grab the IP address of a client that is also the gateway, check if its not in designer and check the role of the user logged on. That will then flip an OPC bit to tell the PLC that the user has the permissions to hit the start button. Has anyone done something like this?
