Problem Connecting with MODSCAN64 via TCP/IP

Problem Connecting with MODSCAN64 via TCP/IP

I'm trying to figure out what, when I connect to a device to read Modbus data over TCP/IP, Moscan64 always shuts down.

It's been a while since I connected to a PLC via MODSCAN64 via TCP/IP, but as I remember when using MODSCAN32, I would first Identify the IP address of the PLC, and set my laptop to the same network:

PLC IP Address:
PC Address:
I've confirmed that I can PING from my laptop

For some reason this causes MODSCAN64 to shut down...Am I using the wrong IP address on my laptop?.

Make sure you don't have a duplicate IP on your network.
