    Hi,

    I am using Codesys 3.5.16.30, I might be posting in the wrong forum but I do not see a newer version here.
    I am using this software for the first time and trying to see if we can replace our allen bradley plcs with these ones. I would like to know for testing purposes how can i use my Windows 10 computer to act as both the gateway and plc. In the communications tab I see that the the Gateway has green light which I suppose is my own PC and the Device has grey light. But if I want to use my PC as the PLC as well what do I do? I have installed Codesys Control Win V3 - x64 Version 3.5.16.30 and also click on start PLC from the system tray but I can't seem to understand how to use the same PC for both programming/Gateway and the Target device.

    Please help as I want to start this journey with Codesys and I am really excited about it.

    Regards
    SB
