I am very new to Rapid SCADA and I am trying to set up a virtual network using this software. I created a VM with windows 10 installed and configured using the videos which worked great. I have a few questions.
1. When you want to use different computers within a VM do you have to install the entire software or just a certain aspect on the computers communicating.
2. I want a main SCADA, then a RTU or HMI connected to a certain sensor. I want to simulate just a small SCADA network and have them communicate with each other. Not sure how this is done using Rapid SCADA.
These would simulated devices in a vm on different vm computers. The Modbus RTU and OPC connected device would be used.
Both RTU machines would be attached to the main SCADA. I was reading up and it looks like we can use the Rapid Gate to communicate between computers. However, I am not clear if a full version of SCADA software would have to be installed on all VM machines.
