FIM Profinet Connect is an FDI Communication server and allows FIM access to Profinet devices.
The FIM Profinet Connect is a windows service. A failing start of the FIM Profinet Connect service will leave a message in the application event log of the operating system.
Configuration Change of the Connect Service
If the configuration of the Connect Service has changed, a restart of the computer or server node running the Connect Service is required. Only by doing so, it can be ensured that the recent changes are taken over.
This is explicitly required if e.g. the IP configuration of the network adapter (that is assigned to the FIM Profinet Connect Service) has changed.
