Hi, first time user here.
i am trying to make this work:
Server with Ignition 8 | | | Router 1 |-- WAN IP | LAN IP | | | |-- modbus TCP device | |-- micrologix device | | | Router 2 |-- WAN IP | LAN IP | | | |-- siemens S7-300 device | |-- siemens S7-300 device | | | Router 3 |-- WAN IP LAN IP | |-- modbus RTU over TCP device (serial comm) |-- modbus TCP device
I want to be able to reach all these devices with ignition. At the moment the devices i could get working are the modbus TCP ones. I set up port forwarding in the router and at the ignition
gateway configuracion declared the ip and port (WAN side) of the device and worked without issues.
I can also reach and read the micrologix and S7s from the LAN side of the routers but not from the WAN side. Here lies my confusion with these devices: i can do the port forward in the router
but the ignition gateway configuration does not “ask” for the device port. i guess it assumes the default ports for the protocols (44818 and 102) but i can’t find where or how to point the
ignition gateway to the ports used on the WAN side. I have been looking in the forum and found something about “host override” but i am not sure if this applies to devices or to OPC servers
that the ignition OPC UA client can communicate to. Also (in case host override works for devices) what are and how should i configure the “discovery” and “endpoint” URLs?
Also, i can connect to the RTU over TCP device using a third party program (modbus poll) but in the ignition gateway configurator i don’t find where i assign the ID to the devices, so i got
stuck there. is there any guide for this?
I hope any of you can help me.
