Works after tinkering
I bought this so I could save myself some running around. I work with AB PLC's. This device comes with "standard tunnel" firmware, which will not work with Allen Bradley DF-1. So you will have to goto the website and flash the DF-1 firmware. Also the CD that ships with the item has software that is way too old. I couldn't get it to work. You will have to download new software from the Lantronix site. When configuring you MUST set the device to port 3001, using a virtual comm port (i.e. comm 7 for example) in the lantronix software. This info is hard to come by. It took about 4 hours to get it to work, but it works. Once you do that, use RSlogix to add DF-1 to the virtual comm port. Be sure the serial parameters are indentical to what you setup the Lantronix for.
