Changing communication between WinCC server and client in WinCC V5 SP2

QUESTION:
What should I watch out for if I want to change the communication between WinCC server and (multi-) client using the "Communication Configurator"?

ANSWER:
The "Communication Configurator" is located under "Start > SIMATIC > WinCC > Tools". You can use it to set the communication between WinCC server and the clients.

You must make the settings on all the computers, (multi-) clients and server. The "Use high load operation mode" option must only be used for 100Mbit/s networks (see figure). You must not use this option in any other case.

If with the multi-client you go via several ISDN routers, you must make sure to use the worst or lowest connection speed available and set this on all computers.

Note:
If the options of the dialog are changed, registry values are changed. You must restart the computer to make these changes effective.
The settings are computer-specific and do not apply for the complete project.
