how to conncet compact control builder to PM851 via virtual machine?
I have compact control builder v5.0 on a virtual machine. I can configure an IP address vie serial port, but can't connect to the controller through the network. I can do it with windows xp on physical computer, but cannot do that with windows xp on irtual machine.
I would appreciate your help.

There are 2 ways to configure the IP Address on an AC800M ...
- You can use a physical serial port on your PC and a TK212 to COM3 on the controller. In this case your Virtual machine must use a physical serial port on your Virtual Host
- You can change the IP Address setup in the controller hardware setup of your Control Builder project and download the changes to your controller. In this case you must begin with the default IP address of the controller and establish an initial ethernet connection from your VM to the controller.
