Is this even possible to do?  Has anyone successfully been able to access I/O through "Ethernet I/P" between Logix Designer 5000 and Roboguide?

Logix Designer 5000 is an Allen-Bradley Logix Controller platform configuration software...Roboguide is a FANUC controller simulation software...You will need an A-B Logix controller simulation software such as Logix5000 Emulator in order to replicate/simulate a Logix controller exchanging I/O with a FANUC controller containing the EtherNet/IP Adapter option...You will be using the Logix Designer to configure the LogixEmulator controller...
Unfortunately, you cannot quite replicate the Ethernet connectivity within a PC running the two "virtual" controllers...I could develop an A-B HMI application while connected to a Logix5000 Emulator, however, I have to use an AB Virtual Backplane comms driver to connect the two applications...I am not aware of any FANUC comms driver capable to connect a Roboguide controller to an application running on the same physical machine....
The same goes for the scenario in which you have a real Logix Controller with a configured FANUC Generic Ethernet Module and Roboguide running on a PC within the same subnet as the Logix controller Ethernet port...Logix Designer is using a communication driver to connect to the CPU...Software comms packages are not part of the cyclic I/O data transfer but they are treated as "overhead"...

I have been wanting to do this for years. It would be so much easier for troubleshooting.

Yes, i have done it about a year ago lol. Not exactly ethernet ip, but i believe the communication works similar to ethernet packets. I can communicate roboguide and robot studio to a sim plc, sim hmi, real plc, real hmi etc.  The secret communication medium is opc.
