How can you change the IP address of an S7-1200 without using STEP 7 Basic?
The S7-1200 tool enables you to specify the IP address of one or several S7-1200 CPUs without using the STEP 7 Basic software.
This tool is particularly useful for mass filling; if, for example, you download a project by means of a memory card to multiple CPUs in a network and then have to change the IP address for each CPU.

Save this file on your computer.
|3.||Open the exported CSV file with Notepad.|
Each line in the CSV file contains a MAC address, IP address, subnet mask and gateway address for each separate S7-1200 CPU.
You can change the network settings of each CPU as required. You must not change the MAC address.
You can use the "#" character to insert comments in the CSV file.
|4.||Click the "Import..." button and select the modified CSV file from Step 3.
|5.||Your changes are shown in the Network Mapping table .|
Click the "Update" button to apply the new network settings of all the CPUs.
|1.||Click the "Fault Capture" button to read out system information from the selected S7-1200 CPU. This information can be forwarded to Siemens for analysis.
|2.||Click the "Reset To Factory Defaults" button to reset the selected S7-1200 CPU back to its original factory settings. All the data including the IP address will be deleted.
