I'm trying to communicate with the universal (K-1874) controller though Ethernet/IP connection, however all my attempt were unsuccessful.

I figured out that there is no connection whatsoever though the Ethernet port of my Desktop though control panel --> networks and Internet --> network and sharing center. Which doesn't show the any Ethernet connection.

However I can connect and used the gripper using the USB to USB port.

    You can connect the universal controller to your PC via an ethernet port and control it with RUI if you have a Modbus TCP universal controller.
    You also need to set a fixed IP on your PC.

    The IP of the universal controller is:
    You can set this fixed IP on your PC:

    I think you have an EtherCAT controller so you won't be able to connect on RUI via ethernet. Only a USB-USB connection is possible with RUI.

    I would recommend that you ask for the help of an integrator for your project.
    Unfortunately, we cannot do this integration for you.

    I hope this will solve your issue. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any other questions regarding this issue.

    Kind regards,
