Q: I’m not sure what I need. Do I need the pi gateway, or is this an alternative to using the VM?
A: You could get the pi gateway or VM to run plcremote. The pi gateway also provides the VM gateway which is available as a download.
Q: If I use the pi gateway, can any computer on my office network access the remotes?
Q: Will my customer need to load the client software on their machines?
A: Yes, but it doesn’t install, it just runs a runtime app. This software comes with the pi gateway or VM gateway.
Q: Can customer load the client on each network that has a PC and PLC connected to it, and how do I get into different PC’s?
A: Yes, but you can only run one PLC connection at a time. The customer uses the field gateway and it configures the path to the PLC based on your web page management screen settings.
