I was trying to connect to a compact logix 1769-L32E. I tried a new channel with a new device and I 'm having problems with the connection.

I think we’re going to need a description of the problems you’re encountering.

I recently struggled with connecting to a compact logix myself.

What eventually worked for me was:

[ul][li]Channel = Control Logix Ethernet
[list][]Model = Compact Logix 5300[/li]
[li]ID = IP Address, 1, 0[/li][/ul][/

Hope that helps.
