    Hello, I got a project to test a cybersecurity in OT (ICS SCADA). So Rapid SCADA seems like a good choice for this because I have HMI (webserver) and it seems very intuitive.

    my problem starts with setting a communication. I’m trying to set a communication for a MiTM attack. I wanted to achieve this by virtualization. So, PC host (Win 10) is Admin with HMI through Web server etc.. Then I wanted through VirtualBox on VM (Win 7) Modbus Slave with ModRSSim2 simulator, this would act like PLC device. And then I would have a Attacker to try do a arpspoof attack.

    I can’t set a communication with Host and VM Guest. I tried many things, through changing communicator IP in AdminSCADA to match VM. I tried to set comm in VirtualBox to Bridged or OnlyHost and nothing worked so far. Maybe the problem is also that ModRSSim2 simulator can’t change the “Remote IP” from Localhost (127.0.0.1)

    Is it a possible to set a communication like I described? Did I made somewhere a mistake in setting a comm.? OR should I approach a different route to set a comm.?

    Thank you very much for you help.

    Set VirtualBox network as “Bridge Adapter” will make your host and VM just like 2 machine in a LAN environment.

    I have been running this setup for a long time, no issue so far.

    For Modbus salve in window 7 VM, you will need to set firewall in bound rule to allow port 502 traffic.
    For Modbus salve in Linux VM, you will need to change port number to larger than 1024, e.g. 1502.

    Are there any limits on port number?
