2. On each line select the range of IDs to re-route. In the 1st box
enter the starting ID. Valid IDs range from 1 to 255.
3. 2nd box – enter the last ID of the range to re-route.
4. 3rd box - enter IP Address or Port with slave devices attached.
5. 4th box shows the IP address of the slave device, if an IP
address is chosen in the third box.
Set Up Modbus Priority
13
1. Only use this screen if Modbus Priority is to be set.
2. Enter up to five different priorities, based on Originating
IP Address, Modbus ID, Modbus Function Code, or a
combination of these.
3. IP Address sets a static IP address for the Modbus gateway.
4. Modbus ID has a valid range from 1 to 255.
5. Function Code has a valid range from 1 to 99.
Save and Log Out
14
1. If you have completed the configuration, click Save to save the
configuration to the serial server.
2. To Logout, click the Logout button.
To Test and Verify Operation
16
The primary check for correct operation is the device LEDs. See
Section 2 this document for more information.
For advanced information, see the Modbus Configuration
Manager menu at the top of Vlinx Manager screen.
Select Diagnostic for a check of communications status with
attached MESR9xx device, and then select the device for which
the communications check is desired.
A report of reply times and ping statistics is generated and can
be saved.
Select Monitor to review activity logs of attached MESR9xx
devices, then select the device for which logged information is
needed.
Logged information includes: Time, Source & Destination,
Type of event, Subscriber ID, Data collected, and Information
the Vlinx Manager program has gathered since current login of
the affected device.

1. Click Login. Password is blank from factory, no password is
necessary to operate the MESR unit.
The Configuration/General page appears.
Set Up Network
7
I want DHCP is preselected to set up the network using dynamic
IP addressing. The Modbus Gateway is set up at the factory
to receive an IP assignment from a DHCP Server. If a DHCP
Server is not available on your network, it will default to
169.254.102.39.
If a DHCP server is not available and the default address does
not work on your PC, change your PC network settings to IP
Address: 169.254.102.1, Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0, Default
Gateway: 169.254.102.100. If you are not able to use these
settings in your installation, refer to page 17 of the user’s manual
for directions to change the Modbus Gateway’s TCP/IP settings.
Set Up Modbus TCP
8
Modbus TCP Settings:
Connect to Port identifies TCP port used in TCP Client Mode.
Valid range is 1 to 65535.
Response timeout is the maximum response time. Valid range
is from 1 to 65535.
TCP Server Settings:
Listen on Port identifies TCP port in TCP Server Mode. Valid
range is from 1 to 65535.
Limit the Number of Connections…Controls the number of
simultaneous TCP clients that can be connected.
…allow everyone,” “…allow specific IP address” & “allow a
