When I have created a device with direct TCP/IP connection, why do I see an Emb.Gateway which is automatically added to the device? Also what is the need of TCP/IP network element
The new Ethernet interface module IFE has two functionalities, one as a native TCP/IP device interface and other as a Gateway to the Modbus SL devices. Hence you see the Emb.Gateway getting automatically added in the tree view.
TCP/IP network element organizes all TCP/IP devices in the network and further it is used to validate the Device IP address duplication.
