    I am sorry that I have to bother you to ask this question. My Rapid SCADA installation has been working very well for many months now, but my Linksys router stopped working on several occasions, so I replaced it with a D-Link router. The only things that do not work are Rapid SCADA and Powerconfig from Siemens. I stopped using the latter when I finally got Rapid SCADA to work.
    The Sentron PAC3200 is still working, but no communication exists to my router.
    Please help.

    Is the meter in the same local network as Rapid SCADA?

    Yes, all is the same as when I first got Rapid SCADA to work for me. Just a new router. I believe the router is blocking, so should I open a port for the meter in the router software?

    I tried to get the router to open the DHCP address for the PAC3200, but it is not in the same local network. My PC and router are in 192.168.0 and my PAC3200 meter is at 192.168.1.
    However, it was working before with the old router.
    Is there a way to make it work?

    Sorry, but I got help from Siemens, and changed the IP address of the PAC3200 meter so that it would be in the range of the DHCP of my router that has the third number group a “0” instead of a “1”.
    Then I had to get Rapid SCADA to communicate with that address. It wasn’t easy, but it’s done!
