What is the Web Server for M258 PLC and how we can access this.

They are ready to use with a Web browser. No configuration or programming is required.
The Web server can be accessed by the web browsers listed below:

The Web server is limited to 10 TCP connections.
NOTE: The Web server can be disabled by setting the Web Server active parameter in the Devices tree, double click on
the Ethernet Items and navigate to Ethernet Configuration tab.
The Web server is a tool for reading and writing data, and control the state of the controller, with full access to all data in
your application. If, however, there are security concerns over these functions, you must at a minimum assign a secure
password to the Web Server or disable the Web Server to prevent unauthorized access to the application.
