"TCP/IP" is too vague.

Ethernet/IP?  Profinet?  CIP-Safe?  ProfiSafe?

Hi Panic Mode,
When used Profinet on Mitsubishi, I have to module RJ71PN92 because PLC Mitsubishi can't support direct protocal Profinet. It's expensived.
So, I used Enthernet/IP. But I don't know How to setting on KCR4 and PLC. Can you help me?
Thank you so much.

that is something you need to explore....
but in general, both sides must be able to use same fieldbus (plus one must be able to work as master and other must be able to work as slave)


adding support for some fieldbys usually means buying software or hardware or both - for each of the nodes.


in case of PLC this may be hardware option such as
https://us.mitsubishielectric.com/fa/en/support/technical-support/knowledge-base/getdocument/?docid=3E26SJWH3ZZR-38-2042

in case of KRC that means software option (ProfiNet or EthernetIP)

regardless of type (hardware or software), each option probably costs roughly the same.
