Type the following command at the MS-DOS prompt in your command window to verify the connection between your computer and a Sharp PLC:
sharp_diag <Host Name> <Socket Port Number>
If the test succeeds, output with the following format displays:
Host name: <Computer name> PLC name: <PLC name> Port number: <Port number>
<Computer name> is bound to the socket.
<Computer name> is connected to <PLC name>.
Communication between <Computer name> and <PLC name> is disconnected (normal exit).
For example, if the computer name is ABC123, the configured host name is SHARP and the configured port number is 24576, the output for a command:
sharp_diag ABC123 24576
looks like this:
Socket port: 24576
Host name: ABC123 PLC name: SHARP Port number: 24576
ABC123 is bound to the socket.
ABC123 is connected to SHARP.
Communication between ABC123 and SHARP is disconnected (normal exit).
