    Thanks for all the answers.

    OfficeLite runs on a Win 10 virtual machine and the provides EthernetKRL server doenst work there because of the missing .net framework. but this doenst bother me anymore.

    I managed to get the Kuka router software and followed the instructions in another thread and created a route from localhost to the ip of my vmnet8 adapter ( on my host pc with the desired port number. i started the server on my host machine and the example xmlcallback.src on the kr c4 with the internal ip of the virtual machine ( configured in the xml and this worked. i got a connection to the server on the host pc.

    But now i am trying to configure the server on the kr c4 and the client on my host pc and i doenst really work. i used the example XmlServer.src and xml files (there is a mistake in them btw. in the xml <ALIVE Set_Flag="1"/> is set AFTER ip and port is configured but if you look in the documentation it has to be set BEFORE ip and port)

    Anyway i tried to start the server and when i used the ip which is set in the network configuration tab on the kr c4 the server program has no errors, starts the server and wait for flag[1] to be set to true which should happen when the connection is established.

    I then wrote a small c# script (which works with other servers) and used the port i configured in the XmlServer.xml file and the ip of the virtual machine (not the ip configured in the network configuration of the controller) and the program seems to establish a connection. in the router program i see that the route to the ip of the host pc is used and the state is "connecting" with a yellow light. but it never connects and the flag[1] never is set to true.

    anyone has an idea where my mistake is?

    Hi Forum,

    at the Moment i am trying to make the EthernetKRL work in Kuka OfficeLite. I use KSS 8.6.1 and EthernetKRL V3.1.0

    I already read a lot of posts here but i couldnt find a post with my problem.

    I know that i Need Kuka router for communication with outside OL PC. I am working on getting that from Kuka. But in the meantime i am wanted to use the EthernetKRL example EthernetKRL_Server.exe in Office Lite but when i start it i get the error: "An app on your PC Needs the following Windows feature: .NET Framework 3.5(includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0)"

    i tried to download and install it, but that doenst work and the program wont start.

    Anyone else had that problem before? and i dont have the .net Framework on my pc is it possible to communicate at all with outside PC?

    Hello Forum,

    i wanted to use Kuka EthernetKRL in KukaOffice Lite but i am getting an error i cant solve by myself.

    when i load my Office Lite Project (KR C4, KSS 8.6.1) everything works fine but then i try to install EthernetKRL (V3.1.0) with the EthernetKRL.kop file and when the controller restarts the message "Boot failed for module: Histogram" shows up and robot movement and programs are disabled.

    i cant find any solution to this.

    it happens when i install Ethernet KRL on my clean project. It doenst matter if i install it from WorkVisual or directly from USB-Stick. It is always the same result.

    EDIT: the installation as itself is successfull. EthernetKRL is listed under installed modules, but after its installed there is always that boot problem.

    Help would be appreciated.

    Thanks, i will contact Kuka in the next days.

    Yes i am in Europe and we use Profinet. But what do you mean with "both use same resources and therefore cannot be used at the same time."?

    i want a one way communication. just reading out the robot joint values and then use them on my PC.

    its no safety related program. i just want to visualize the robots movements and it should appear that the real robot and the visualization move at the same time. but obviously hard real time is not necessary

    i already read about some options to do this:


    Ethernet KRL


    OPC Server

    are there more?

    and all these things require to install something on the controller or are expenisve. is there another way?

    i thought about reading out the profinet connection but obviously i need a profinet networkcard in my pc for this.

    Hey forum,

    i have the following problem: i have a kuka Kr 360 with a Kr C4 robot controller and i want to get the robots joint values/coordinates of the axes, preferably in real time, and then use these values in a custom program on my laptop.

    Therefore i need some type of interface to communicate with the robot and establish a network connection.

    What approach can i take to accomplish this? What is the best way to do this?
