What particular points do you need to watch out for when configuring a TeleService connection to the TS Adapter II with STEP 7 Professional V12 or higher (TIA Portal)?

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
With the SIMATIC TeleService software as well as with TIA Portal up to and including V11 you can establish a TeleService connection to the TS Adapter II without specifying user name and password, if the adapter still has its default parameters set.

With TIA Portal V12 and higher you must specify at leas the default user name "ADMIN". We recommend assigning a password in addition to avoid abuse.
Alternatively you can also define your own user name. If you enter the user name and password in the telephone book in the TIA Portal, then you do not have any increased typing for establishing the connection.
