    I'm trying to connect the beaglebone with a robot KUKA by profinet.

    Beaglebone side:

    • I have already exported the gdsml file. The file name and version is:

           GSDML-V2.32-3S - Smart Software Solutions GmbH-Codesys PLC-20160824.xml
    • I have already added the codesys profinet device using a different project parameter, in my case beaglebone (it is
      the same in the robot)

    Codesys version: V3.5 SP15
    Beaglebone SL: with softPLC license.

    Robot side:

    - I have imported and configured the gsdml.
    - I checked the connection with PRONETA and i can see the devices but it is imposible to make the connection.

    I don't know how to make it work.
    If it is possible to connect in slave mode, there are some steps or documentaton?

    Thanks in advance.

    could you please use a USB-Ethernet Adapter for the Profinet interface?
    I think there is a problem with the local nic in BBB doing this.

    In addition, Also check runtime configuration under profinet Io under field is under (and all its subpages)

    There are some config steps for Linux runtime such as changing the protocol filter.

    I tried both. No succed.

    The maximum thing that i get was intermitent connection.

    I tried also modify the comm speed and the same result. Now with ethernet/IP i can communicate but with profinet nothing...

    does a scan find your slaves? ( For the case that you are using an ethernet- usb adapter to do profinet)
    And could we get the plc log for that?
