I am really new to PLCs programming, connecting, etc. I received a 1756-L72 with Logix5572 Processor and an EthernetIP card. My goal here is to connect it to my laptop along with another device (a Bar Code Reader). Both devices are connected to an unmanaged ethernet switch and one of the port to my laptop.
Now the problem is that all my Rockwell Softwares are on a VM. Therefore, I need to connect all those devices to the VM on my laptop and it does not seem to work. My ethernet IP on the VM is 192.168.198.128 while my PLC is 192.168.0.205. I know i have to get the 3 first equal but I don't know how to change my PLC IP address. I tried following this website steps but it did not work.
I know it might not be clear, so I'm available to answer any questions you guys have.
