RNRP explicit settings
In our project using following IP addresses
AC800M IP : 172.16.1.1 & 172.17.1.1
OPC server IP: 172.16.0.11
Subnet mask : 255.255.0.0
800xA is not used.
Please suggest me wether RNRP settings are correct or not?
Thanks in advance.
If you use explicit addressing then you must set the node numbers for the controller. You should also read the 800xA networking guide to understand how RNRP uses the subnet mask to configure rendant networking.
If you don't plan to add a second network card to the OPC server, then disable port 2 on the controller.
In your case you are using the default base address ... 172.16.x.x. So you will probably find it much easier to just use the default RNRP setup. (This has subnet mask 255.255.252.0 and both the controllers and OPC server use 172.16.0.x)
The networks 172.16.x.x (and 172.17.x.x) should be for the Controller to OPC server ONLY. Do not use this network for the HMI. Network speed is limited to 10M (or 100M for PM891).
