WebPort® Online Help

This online help provides comprehensive information about installing, configuring, and using your WebPort to remotely access data from programmable logic controllers (PLCs), additional WebPorts, and human-machine interface or SCADA equipment.

A WebPort may access this equipment via Ethernet or serially using the two serial ports that are available. You may also access your WebPort or PLC equipment locally over the intranet, via a locally setup VPN, or remotely using the Internet or cellular interface via the WebPort Connects® cloud service (also via a VPN).


Before you can configure your WebPort, you must have the WebPort installed and running.
