I followed your instructions for setting up routing on a 5700 Stratix. I cannot get RSLinx to see the controller connected to the router (it has a red X 0n the connection). I can ping the controller but I can also ping the controller with the cable disconnected from the controller. This pinning without the controller connected is not correct but I can’t determine why this is happening. Is the router somehow sending the ping back and not the controller?
The router IP address is 10.170.68.98 and the controller is 10.170.69.1. The 10.170.69.1 is set to VLAN169 and is mapped to port one on the router. I am using port 16 on the router for the development computer.
Let me know if you need more information. Thanks!September 20, 2019 at 6:07 pm #10205

From your description, it sounds like you’ve assigned the 10.170.69.1 IP address to the 169 VLAN interface on the stratix. If this is the case then you’ll be able to ping 10.170.69.1 when the controller is unplugged because that IP address is assigned within the Stratix.
You only need one IP address assigned to the stratix (10.170.68.98) unless you’re wanting to use the Stratix as a router (L3 switch). If you do want the Stratix to route, then you need to set the IP address on the controller to something besides 10.170.69.1 because that IP address is being used as the gateway address for the 10.170.69.0 network (assuming that your subnet mask is 255.255.255.0).
