Re: IM5_Supported_ETS_ART_2.44.1_Problem

Hello PROFINET Forum experts. I have a couple of problems. For the other I will start another post. This is strange. With ART 2.44.1 we are testing our solution which now supports I&M5 (the previous version didn't so this is the first time I see this.). The ART is telling me that the GSDML file...

Re: Specification for BlockQualifier FactoryReset

The PN protocol specification (2.4MU4) defines the BlockQualifier field for almost all DCP Suboptions (4.3.1.4.11). But I am missing a definition for the Suboption FactoryReset. Shall the value be ignored by the PN device? In contrast, the BlockQualifier for ResetToFactory is used to select the res...

No, this is not possible. As far as i know, this is a topic on the very long "todo / wish"- list. I miss this functionality as well.

Re: ETS for IRT and Netload

My understanding is that - for IRT testing I need a different setup using the SPIRTA tool and a separate PCIE-Card - for Netload testing I need different setup using the pinetload tool on a Linux machine Would this be correct so far? Yes, that is correct. I do not know roadmap for those topics. I a...

Re: Non-Profinet-neighbor Testcases with ETS-Board

Hello everyone, I have a question about the non-profinet-neighbor test cases with the ETS board (ART tester version 2.44.1.2) If I have understood the test specification correctly, the non-profinet neighbors are simulated. So no additional hardware is required. With the current ART-Tester version, ...
