    Controllino MAXI and Controllino MEGA come with Ethernet controller WIZnet W5100 builtin.

    There is Built-In library compatible with Controllino MAXI and Controllino MEGA see:

    [img]https://i.postimg.cc/Nj6n4Zmr/Ethernet-library.png[/img]

    So it is possible to include Ethernet library:

    #include "Ethernet.h"

    To make the ethernet work, some parameters must be declared:

    byte mac[] = {0xE8, 0x2A, 0xEA, 0x4B, 0x1F, 0xC3};
    IPAddress localip(192, 168, 6, 191);
    IPAddress serverip(192, 168, 6, 2);

    mac is HW MAC address, localip is IP address of Controllino itself, serverip is IP address of remote client (can be other Controllino).

    Ethernet library provides EthernetClient and EthernetServer classes, EthernetClient for connecting to remote and EthernetServer for setup “TCP listener”

    EthernetClient client;
    EthernetServer server(50001);

    For EthernetServer 50001 is the port number on which Controllino will listen.

    Ethernet has to be initialized:

    Ethernet.begin(mac, localip);

    And then, a message can be sent to a remote server:

        client.connect(serverip, 50001);
        delay(10);
        client.println("Execute Script: "script A0";");
        delay(10);
        client.stop();

    Or message can be received:

      EthernetClient proxyserver = server.available();
      if (proxyserver)
      {
        while (proxyserver.connected())
        {
          if (proxyserver.available())
          {
            char c = proxyserver.read();
            message += c;
          }
        }
        proxyserver.stop();
      }

    It is also possible to use several Controllino devices in a Master-Slave Scenario.

    Example scenario see:

    [img]https://i.postimg.cc/3rkZ3XYJ/Controllino-net.jpg%5B/img%5D

    Where two “slave” Controllinos are connected to one “Master” Controllino and these 3 devices acts like “one”.

    When “Master” acts like “proxy” for TCP messages from “slaves”.

    Real setup with logical “1” connected to A0 of each Controllino see:

    [img]https://i.postimg.cc/8cxNFhG3/Controllino-setup.jpg%5B/img%5D

    For listening on PC Hercules tool has been used see:

    [img]https://i.postimg.cc/13tbxgZV/Controllino-Hercules-listen.jpg%5B/img%5D

    Which receives messages from all 3 devices.
