Title: How to set the port number to 502?
Post by: Duane on March 29, 2020, 10:43:33 pm
Hi mate,

I really like the intention behind this app, but it does not allow me to enter a port number lower than 1000.  Most plcs cant change the modbus tcp Port number.

Can you release an update that allows this?

I even tried to modify the plist file but this has been sewn up tightly too. Almost as if it were intentional.

Regards
Duane

Prior to macOS V10.14 (Mojave) all ports below 1023 require root privileges for full access. A workaround solution is explained in the ModbusClient Help section.
From 10.14 onwards this restriction has been removed and you can simply set the port number to 502.
