IP config tool installation
I have a question regarding IP config tool. For some reason I have not instaled 800xA on my laptop. But I have to use it to change IP address of the AC800M PLC on site.
Could you give an advice, if can I instal IPConfig tool to my laptot without installing whole 800xA system to be able to change IP address of my PLC.

IPconfig tool is part of Control Builder installation.
You can use IP config tool included in Compact Control Builder, it should work instead of IPconfig of 800xA.
Or use VM standalone 800xA. If your laptop does not contain 9pin serial port you will need USB-to-serial adapter.
It is possible to set IP addresses of non-redundant AC800M even without IPconfig tool. Just set new IP address of Ethernet1 and Ethernet2 of your Controller in Control Builder. Push Init button of Controller longer then 3 seconds. Change Controller identity in Control Builder then.
NO, You can not install IPConfig tool seperately without Control Builder M Proffessional. It will installed with Control Builder M Proffessional only.
In case you are working on PLC Connect or Compact HMI; you have to use Compact Control Builder, which can be installed on your laptop with IPConfig tool.
