How To Change The IP Address Of The CP1W-CIF41 Ethernet Option Board With CX-Programmer?
If the IP address in the web browser is 0.0.0.0, the IP address display/setting area n+ 155 and n+156 will act as a setting area. In this condition the CP1W-CIF41 uses this PLC memory area as the IP address for configuration on power up.
Note: Changing IP address with DM memory locations may cause errors on the CP1W-CIF41. Address disagreement error may occur when the FINS node number set for the option board does not agree with the host ID in the IP address. This probably occurs when the address conversion method is set for automatic address generation. To prevent this error change address conversion mode to manual with the web browser.
Additional info: DM memory location varies per controller type and option port number 1-2. The following information describes the unit address for each option port.
n = DM32000 + 300×(0xFD - Unit Address)
n = Mode setting (2 bytes)
n+1 = FINS/TCP port number (2 bytes)
n+2 = FINS/UDP port number (2 bytes)
n+3 = IP address (4 bytes)
n+5 = Subnet mask (4 bytes)
n+7 = Reserved (2 bytes)
n+8 = IP address table (194 bytes)
n+105 = IP router table (66 bytes)
n+138 = FINS/TCP connection setup (22 bytes)
n+149 = HTTP server setup (10 bytes)
n+154 = FINS node address (2 bytes)
n+155 = Using IP Address Display/Setting Area (4 bytes)
An example configuration is shown below.
Default web address: http://192.168.250.1/E00.htm (E00 for English, J00 for Japanese, C00 for Chinese)
Default Login Password: ETHERNET

Now we can alter values in n+156 with CX-Programmer
