Detecting the PLC's IP address

To detect the PLC's IP address you can use any of the available LAN network scanning tools. You can also gain the IP address from the DHCP server (if you have access to it). For this tutorial, we selected the Advanced IP Scanner program.

Download and install it, or just launch it. The Advanced IP Scanner interface looks like the following:

For automatic network selection, click on the icon to start detection of all available networks on all available adapters of the PLC. The specific range can be adjusted manually.

For network scan click on the button.

Scanning local networks will take a couple of minutes. Please wait until your device is displayed.

Remember the IP address - you will need it later when working with the PLC.
