Testing ModbusTCP with Soft Controller
Is it possible to test ModbusTCP using soft controllers in 800xA? I have the interface card inserted in my project and all configured with what I think are the correct parameter values (IP address etc.). I'm trying to test using MOD_RSSIM. The simulate hardware setting is enabled in Control Builder.
However I'm getting an error -6811 on the connect block. My channel and partner are configured as per the hardware tree.
Thanks in advance,

The only Interface possible in a SoftController is the first Ethernet Interface (e.g. MMS Communication), simulated Hardware actually means it is not existing and allows to download to a different type of Controller than what is configured, not that any of the Hardware itself is simulated.
As far as i know there is no simulation possibility for any of the CI Cards in Softcontroller, you'll need to use an actual physical Controller with CI867 to use Modbus TCP.
