CODESYS Gateway - login to plc using URL

    I have PLC with "white" static IP-address and URL (something like as "")

    I want to login in this PLC from CODESYS IDE.

    When I use IP-address - all works fine (see screenshot).

    But if I use instead IP "" (just in case: my real URL is different and I'm sure it works because I can open web-visu of PLC with it) - I got timeout error from Gateway.

    Is this possible to login PLC using URL?

    From your screenshot, if you click Device > Manage Favourite Devices > Add, you will get a blue tip about using "dns:" to prefix your dns address.

    you might be able to just type "" into the Device box, but you won't get the helpful blue tip about the syntax.
