    Default Dual Ethernet Port in Runtime PC

    Hi Support,

    I am using zenon V7.11. I have zenon runtime running in PC with dual ethernet ports. Those ports are connected into the same hub. Everything is running well, but when the primary ethernet cable (primary port) is disconnected, the runtime is also stopped.

    Is there anyway to create a backup connection using the secondary ethernet cable (secondary port)? So when the primary cable is disconnected, runtime is still running using the secondary ethernet cable. What should i do to create that kind of system?


    Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Default AW: Dual Ethernet Port in Runtime PC

    Hi andrigunawan,

    how are the IP-addresses assigned? Static or dynamic? Is the name resolution working?

    "Everything is running well, but when the primary ethernet cable (primary port) is disconnected, the runtime is also stopped. "
    Normally the runtime should not stop automatically, if you unplug the network cable.
    Are u using the zenon Redundancy Management Tool - for closing the RT?

    Basically zenon network requires a working name resolution.
    The runtime doesn't care if it uses the first network card or the second one.

    Best regards,

    Default Re: AW: Dual Ethernet Port in Runtime PC

    Hi konstantif,

    Sorry for late reply and thanks for your response. I already used default feature (may be) from windows. This feature can combine 2 IP addresses into single (virtual) IP address. If one of those IP Addresses is going down, another IP Address can back it up. So, i think my problem is solved

    Thanks for your help
