PLC-5 Communications via Gateway

Has any one successfully communicated to an AB PLC-5 with Ignition through an ethernet to serial gateway/Mux/TS ? I am looking to communicate through a SCADALink IP-100.

Just on its headline marketing material, I would not expect that one to work. Ignition’s native driver doesn’t work on PLC channel 0 serial at all, so routing via ethernet doesn’t help. But take a look at this topic:

Consider trying the Digi product–I suspect it will work on the PLC-5 family, too.
