Simatic S7 tcp/ip protocol RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    First it's good to see there is a forum for this topic. I hope a lot of people coming by to ask and answer questions so that we all can benefit.

    So my first question is does somebody know the tcp/ip protocol to communicate with an Simatic S7 PLC. I want to create my own OPC server in C# but cannot find any information.

    So any help would be highly appreciated, Thanks in advance,

  • Apparently there many definitions of OPC in the world. Unfortunately, it sounds like the one that you're referring to might be OPen Connectivity. This forum is focused on a different OPC, Open Packaging Conventions. Aside from sharing an acronym, the two are unrelated, and unfortunately those of us here at Microsoft that work on Open Packaging will not be much help in answering your question.

    Kudos to you on getting 'first post', though.
