About Ports

A port is a communication "socket" that connects one or more factory devices such as PLC's to the computer.

Use this function to configure ports and specify their characteristics. Configuration requirements for ports vary depending on the type of port and communications protocol being used.

Step 1 Enable a protocol in a CIMPLICITY project.
Step 2 Open a Port Properties dialog box.
Step 3 Configure port general properties.
Step 4 Configure port-specific properties.
Note: You can create a maximum of 64 ports per project.
