Please be sure your drivers are working properly by using the RSWho screen. If your Windows firewall is blocking those responses or the broadcast itselfthat would be consistent with the fact that the Ethernet Devices driver works, and with your description of other computers with the exact same configuration working correctly.
RSLinx Ethernet Driver
Ken, The use of term such as “same subnet” and “remote subnet” still confuses me. If you are using a host file or DNS server configruing, you can enter the host names instead of the IP addresses. All times are GMT If you have a shortcut on your desktop, use that to open RSLinx. I’m having trouble finding any other options etherjet the driver itself that might be misconfigured.
