How do I set up redundant communications to a Kingfish RTU using the Kingfish driver over Ethernet? 

On the Kingfish network, a Citect IO device acts as an RTU. The primary and standby IO devices require different initiating RTU ID's. This is achieved by explicitly setting the IO device address. The IO Address field is defined as follows:

MasterRTU, ViaRTU, InitiatingRTU, SystemID


MasterRTU is the ID of the RTU to communicate to.

ViaRTU is the ID of the RTU to pass through (set to 0 if no pass through).

InitiatingRTU is the ID of the Citect IO device (set to 0xFF for the primary and 0xFE for the standby)

System ID is the default system ID (should be set to 0xAE)
