Note: For information on how to setup the MBX Gateway Client and Server see the resolution entitled "How to connect remotely to a MB+ network via TCP/IP using the MBX Gateway driver".
To Connect to a MB+ Network with Unity Pro from a remote PC via the MBX Gateway you must chose the Adapter/Device number of the MBX Gateway Client in the Communication Setup.

Under PLC chose Set Address.

Type in the MB+ address of the PLC and under Media chose the MB+ device number of the MBX Gateway Client.
Note: This Number is offset by 1 in Unity. So if your MBX Gateway Client is set as device 1 in the MBX Gateway configuration you would chose MBPLUS02 as the Media.

Press OK and then chose connect from the PLC menu to connect to the PLC.
