GE 90-30 PLC Switch User Manual

TCP/IP Ethernet Communications User’s Manual - August 1997 GFK-1084B
Configuration Mode: This is currently fixed as TCP/IP.
Status Address: The Status Address is the location of the LAN Interface Status (LIS) bits
(16 bits) and the Channel Status bits (64 bits). The Channel Status bits are always located
immediately following the LAN Interface Status bits.
Do not use the 80-bits assigned to the LIS bits and Channel Status bits
for other purposes or your data will be overwritten.
Status Length: This is fixed at 80 bits (the sum of the LIS bits and the Channel Status
IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway Address, and Name Server IP Address: The values for
the IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway Address should be assigned by the person in
charge of your network (the network administrator). TCP/IP network administrators are
familiar with these parameters. It is important that these parameters are correct, other-
wise the Ethernet Interface may be unable to communicate on the network and/or net-
work operation may be corrupted. It is especially important that each node on the net-
work is assigned a unique IP address.
