Venus GX and Modbus

Hi all,


I'm trying to use Venus GX to communicate with my Siemens PLC. At Venus GX I am using VE. Direct 1 and VE. Direct 2. At Siemens' TIA PORTAL, we established the Data type, Start Address and UNIT. However, I couldn't establish the connection. So I used a Modbus Scanner to see if I was really getting the information from Venus yet I can't access any modbus messages from the device. I used the data as Holding Register, I have already activated the Modbus function of the device and I don't know what is missing.


Thank you in advance

MODBUS messages are not sent on the VE.Direct (serial) interfaces.
The MODBUS messages are MODBUS-TCP messages sent on the LAN.

Is it possible to obtain MODBUS registers through wifi?
