The Ethernet CAN gateway is integrated with an Ethernet interface and a CANBUS interface, which can connect a computer with a CANBUS communication device to achieve control, data acquisition, monitoring and other purposes.

Before using the Ethernet CAN gateway, we need to set up the communication connection of the device, and the TCP Client mode is one of them.

So, how does the Ethernet CAN gateway TCP Client mode work?

In actual work, the client initiates a connection with the server, and after the server agrees, the two parties begin to exchange data.

The client can actively communicate with the server, but not the other way around. If we set the Ethernet CAN gateway as the client, we should set the computer as the server through the configuration software.
