Description
2 Description
The purpose of this document is to provide a step-by-step procedure for assigning a static IP address to the WAGO 750-841 Programmable Fieldbus
Controller (PFC). Assigning an IP address is a prerequisite for communicating to the PFC through its Ethernet fieldbus port.
NOTE: The steps for assigning a static IP address to the WAGO 750-342
buscoupler and 750-842 PFC is slightly different than this procedure. Please
refer to WAGO’s Application Note A2020.00 for configuration of those devices.
Two options are available for assigning a static IP address to the WAGO 750841 PFC:
Option 1 - This option utilizes the RS-232 configuration port on the front of
the WAGO 750-841 PFC. This method requires a WAGO Communications
Cable (P/N# 750-920) and WAGO’s Ethernet setup program “WAGOEthernetSettings.exe”.
Option 2 - This option utilizes WAGO’s BootP Server program and the PFC’s
built-in configuration screens. The built-in configuration screens are accessed
with a web browser on your PC (e.g., Microsoft Internet Explorer).
This document will describe both configuration methods.

3.1 Option 1 - Assigning an IP Address to the WAGO 750-841
PFC via the RS232 Configuration Port
1) Attach a WAGO 750-920 Communications Cable between the WAGO 750841 PFC and COMM 1 or 2 on your PC.
2) Launch the WAGO Ethernet setup program “WAGOEthernetSettings.exe”.
The screen below will appear.
If a “Communication Port Error” message is displayed when launching this
program, verify the port settings by clicking the COM1 command button in
the tool bar. COM1 is the default port. After selecting a different COM port,
click the Identify command button to refresh the screen.

3) Select the Set IP-Address option button by clicking on it.
4) Fill in the desired IP-Address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway in the TCP/IP
Configuration window frame. If the Gateway address is not going to be used,
leave the default settings.
5) Click the Write command button in the tool bar to send the new configuration data to the PFC.
6) Now click the Exit command button to close the program.
Your WAGO 750-841 PFC is now ready for communications on an Ethernet
network.
3.2 Option 2 - Assigning an IP Address in the WAGO 750-841
PFC with a BootP Server
IMPORTANT: In this section, steps 1A through 1K assigns an IP address to
the WAGO 750-841 PFC. Steps 2 through 4 stores the assigned IP address to
EEPROM. If the latter steps are not preformed, the PFC will lose its IP address during power loss. Additionally, if a BootP server is not available when
power is restored, the Ethernet fieldbus port will remain inactive.
1a) Launch the WAGO BootP Server. The screen below will appear.

1b) Click on Edit Bootptab command button. The Notepad editor will appear
with a text file similar to the following:
1c) The text file shown contains many lines, most of which begin with the ‘#’
symbol. Any line that begins with a ‘#’ symbol is a comment, and will not be
processed. Look at the bottom line, beginning with the word hamburg. If a
gateway address is not going to be used (typical), put a ‘#’ symbol in front of
this line. It is not needed.
1d) Next look at the line beginning with the word KeinProxy. KeinProxy is a
German term meaning ‘Node Name’. This word can be changed to any descriptor you desire to identify your WAGO Ethernet IO device (e.g.,
WAGONode1).
The remaining contents of this line need to be modified to set the IP address of
the WAGO Ethernet PFC.

Solution
Look on the right side of the WAGO PFC for the unique Mac ID of the device.
Example: MAC ID
0030DE00028A
In the KeinProxy line, you will find the characters ha=. ‘ha’ is short for hardware address, also known as the MAC ID. After ha=, enter the MAC ID of
your device.
Example: ha=0030DE00028A
Also in the KeinProxy Line, you will find the characters ip=, short for IP address. Fill in the desired IP address for the WAGO PFC. This will be the IP
address of the device on the network.
Example: ip=10.1.254.202
If a Gateway is to be used then fill in:
ha= ( MAC ID) : ip= (IP Address): T3= (Gateway Address)
1e) When all this data has been entered it must be saved. At the top of the
Notepad editor,
Click on File
Click on Save, to save the text file. (Do not change the file name.)
1f) Close the Notepad editor. The WAGO BootP Server is again displayed.
1g) Click the Start command button. Three or five status messages will appear, similar to the following screen capture:
1h) Turn power off to the WAGO PFC, and wait for a couple of seconds.

1i) Turn power back on to the WAGO PFC. You will see more status messages scroll down, similar to the following screen capture:
1j) Verify the status information displayed:
- Packets were received from an IP Address
- The Ethernet Address is the same as the MAC ID of the PFC
- The KeinProxy, or node identifier, and IP address match what was entered in
the text file using Notepad
1k) Verify the WAGO PFC is operating correctly. Its diagnostic LED’s
should be illuminated as follows:
Link
Green
MS (Module Status) Green
NS (Node Status)
Green or Flashing Green
TxD/RxD
Flash as data is Sent/Received
I/O
Green
At this point your WAGO PFC contains an IP address. The following steps (2
through 5) will store the assigned IP address to EEPROM so it’s retained during power loss.

2) Launch Microsoft Internet Explorer. In the address box enter the IP address
of your 750-841 PFC and press the Enter key. Internet Explorer will display
a screen similar to the following:
3) Click the Port hyperlink on the left-hand side of the screen. A password
dialog box will be displayed. Enter “admin” for the user name and “wago”
for the password. Then the following screen will appear:

Unselect the BootP check-box and click the SUBMIT command button; the
screen will refresh. The IP address and BootP settings are now stored in
EEPROM and the PFC will maintain these settings during a hardware/software reset or power loss.
Your WAGO 750-841 PFC is now ready for communications on an Ethernet
network.
