    Hi all,

    I am new to Codesys and Linux, and I have a question about connecting a phyboard-Mira based device (which is run on Linux) to a Codesys V3 software. I connected phyBoard-Mira to my PC via ethernet, and I am seeing the device as eth0 when I type ifconfig on my terminal. It sends some data via MQTT protocol, and I am able to get that data with a python code and it is all working, but when I try to get that data in Codesys, I am having troubles even recognizing the device. I have tried setting the eth0 IP address as a Gateway, but it won't work and Codesys delivers the scan failed message.

    I have looked on the forum for solutions, and I don't know if it is necessary to have a Codesys Control package for Linux SL to do this? Also, do I need to connect my PLC first and then do this kind of communication, i.e. do I need to connect both the PLC and the phyBoard-Mira based device for this to work?

    Best regards,
    Petar

    Hi Petar,
    at the moment there is no generic arm or arm cortex based Linux runtime available,
    this is only for Linux SL on Intel/AMD Systems (64Bit)available.
    You need to contact the sales department.
