Modbus tcp slave development (was Getting Involved)


Thread Starter

Philip Costigan

Hi all I have made a feeble attempt at launching the Modbus/TCP slave project. I have decided that it should be developped as a seperate module from the Modbus/TCP master. Later if it all looks possible we may decide to merge the two modules into one but I believe that keeping it seperate allows it to be more manageable. If Phillip Mastroianni wants to get involved could someone organise a cvs login for him.

Hello, I most definetly would like to get involved. I havn't had the time to explore the CVS repository as I have been getting familiar with linux (I am green to Linux). But yes, what ever I can do to help. Now that I am somewhat familiar with linux, I want to get familiar witht the linuxPLC project, are there design documents, etc that I can read. I intend to retrieve the files and attempt to compile them this weekend. Note : I have RedHat 7, are there any issues with this version and the project? _______________________________________________ LinuxPLC mailing list [email protected]
