    Updating the IP Address remotely using Modbus Tester
    1. Convert the desired IP address, Subnet, and Gateway to decimal.
      1. Convert each octet to hex.
    In the example, the desired IP address is
      Decimal Hex
    Octet 1 192 0xC0
    Octet 2 168 0xA8
    Octet 3 2 0x02
    Octet 4 1 0x01
    1. Concatenate the 1st and 2nd octet and the 3rd and 4th octet.
    Combination 1: Octet 1 & Octet 2 = 0xC0A8
    Combination 2: Octet 3 & Octet 4 = 0x0201
    1. Convert the 2 combination back to decimal.
    Combination 1: 0xC0A8 = 49320
    Combination 2: 0x0201 = 513
    1. Read the Semaphore at register 5680 using Modbus Tester
