Reading ControlLogix Using Winsock


Thread Starter



I want to connect to a ControlLogix processor through its Ethernet card( which has a unique IP Address) and read Tags from it Using my program in VB using Winsock ActiveX control. Anybody done this before? Or does ControlLogix supports Winsock ? Please help me.

I don't know if the Contrologix support Winsocks. But that i usualy use is the DDE links to get or set tags in the processor. Those DDe links are exploitable throught lots of application like VB, VBA Excel, words etc.

But you need at least one release of RSlinx gateway, and with DDe Share you can give access to everyone in the networks

Perhaps you already know that but in case of not...
