Firmware modification request
« on: April 10, 2018, 11:23:52 AM »
Can you modify the firmware in an Ecom 100 to use a non standard Modbus port. I'm taking a SCADA security class and they are suggesting we do this. I have already done this with our Do More PLCs and would like to do this on the Direct Logic PLCs.

It is currently possible to add new ports (although NetEdit has to be updated to support it), but it is not possible to disable the standard port. We're looking into it.

We looked into it and we are going to implement it. We hope to have it in the next version of NetEdit, which should be out next month.
