My ControlLogix CPU resides on a remote rack. Is there a simple way to configure a route path to the CPU when using ABCLX? 

The ABCLX help file outlines how this can be done. This information can be found in the ABCLX help file navigating to the section "Advanced configuration and maintenance" and selecting "Using a route path to locate a remote CPU ".

It is important to realise the following:

The route path takes the form /P:m/A:n,/P:m/A:n,etc

/P:m is the PORT that we wish to travel along. This will either be the Backplane (1), Port A (2), Port B (3), Port C (4) or Reserved (0).

/A:n is the ADDRESS that we wish to use. This will either be a CNET address, IP Address, Slot # on the backplane or DH address.

Please note that if you are trying to take a route path from one ethernet card to another you will need to use /P:2 for the PORT and the IP address of the destination ethernet card as the ADDRESS (i.e. /A:n).
