indicates that death or severe personal injury may result if proper precautions are not taken.
CAUTION
with a safety alert symbol, indicates that minor personal injury can result if proper precautions are not taken.
CAUTION
without a safety alert symbol, indicates that property damage can result if proper precautions are not taken.
NOTICE
indicates that an unintended result or situation can occur if the relevant information is not taken into account.
If more than one degree of danger is present, the warning notice representing the highest degree of danger will
be used. A notice warning of injury to persons with a safety alert symbol may also include a warning relating to
property damage.

Properties and functions
Primary Setup Tool (PST) - meaning
With the Primary Setup Tool (PST), you can assign addresses and network parameters to
SIMATIC NET network components, Ethernet CPs and gateways.
This allows you to establish basic communication capability of the components on the
particular network without other configuration tools.
Functions
Depending on the properties of the addressed components and interfaces, the following
functions are available in the PST:
● Basic functions:
– Browsing for devices with an Ethernet interface
– Calling up Web Based Management
– Downloading configurations to the components
– Using functions via the DOS command line
● Configuration for Ind. Ethernet / PROFINET
– Settings for IP addresses
● Configuration for PROFIBUS (for devices with Ethernet and PROFIBUS interfaces)
– Setting the PROFIBUS address
– PROFIBUS bus parameters
PST provides these functions in a convenient user interface that is described below.
Requirements
● This is only possible if the devices have a preset ETHERNET (MAC) address or an IP
address and can be reached online via the network.
● PROFIBUS interfaces can also be configured using PST for modules that also have a
reachable Ethernet interface in addition to the PROFIBUS interface.

Availability and operating systems supported
Supported operating systems
The Primary Setup Tool can be installed and executed under the following operating
systems:
● 32-bit operating systems
– Windows XP Professional SP2 and SP3
– Windows 7 Professional / Ultimate
● 64-bit operating systems
– Windows 7 Professional / Ultimate SP1
– Windows Server 2008 Standard Server R2
DCP protocol and DLC protocol
The Primary Setup Tool uses the protocols DCP (Discovery and basic Configuration
Protocol) and DLC (Data Link Control) for communication with the modules. The DLC
protocol is necessary for devices with older firmware versions.
This includes the following devices:
● CP 443-1 (6GK7 443-1EX10 and 6GK7 443-1EX11)
● Optical/Electrical Switch Module OSM/ESM (6GK1 105…)
The DLC protocol is not supported in 64-bit operating systems. The DLC protocol is not
available either in the setup or during operation of the Primary Setup Tool.
Depending of the operating system you are using, remember the following if you want to use
the DLC protocol:
● Windows 7 Professional / Ultimate
The DLC protocol is not included in Windows, but it can be installed and enabled during
installation of the PST.
Hardware requirements: Clock frequency 1 GHz / 1 GB RAM / screen resolution
1024 x 768 / color quality 16 bit
● Windows XP Professional
The DLC protocol is not included in Windows XP, but it can be installed and enabled
during installation of the PST.
Hardware requirements: Clock frequency 600 MHz / 512 MB RAM / screen resolution
1024 x 768 / color quality 16 bit

Installing PST
Follow the steps below to install the Primary Setup Tool on your computer:
1. In Windows Explorer, double click on the file name setup.exe in the PST_Vx.y directory,
or start the program from the Windows Start > Run menu.
2. Then follow the instructions in the installation dialog.
3. If the DLC protocol is not yet installed on the computer, information to this effect is
displayed.
If you confirm this dialog, the DLC protocol is installed on your computer.
This makes it unnecessary to install the DLC protocol manually.
Note
DLC protocol (optional)
The DLC protocol is only required to access certain older modules. This means it not
always necessary to install it.
4. The final dialog box informs you of successful installation.
5. After installing PST Vx.y, start PST under Start\SIMATIC\Primary Setup Tool.
Result
The following components are installed on your PC/PG:
● Primary Setup Tool
● DLC protocol, if you selected this option during installation
● S7DOS with additional components (VCRedist)
Installing the DLC protocol (only with 32-bit operating systems)
Note
If you did not install the DLC protocol when you installed the Primary Setup Tool and want to
install it now, double-click on the entry "DLC protocol not installed" in the status bar and
follow the instructions.

Configuring the Ethernet interface of a module
If you click on an entry in the device list, the Primary Setup Tool displays information about
the selected device in the detailed view.
You can open the display of the interfaces by clicking on the plus sign or on the device icon.
Follow the steps below to configure the Ethernet interface:
1. Click on the interface you want to configure. In the right-hand half of its program window,
the Primary Setup Tool opens the dialog in which you set the configuration data. Text
boxes or check boxes may be disabled depending on the selections you make. The MAC
address box is always disabled, because this address cannot be changed by the Primary
Setup Tool.
2. Decide how the device will obtain its IP address:
– Dynamically from a DHCP server:
Select the Obtain IP address from DHCP server option button.
– Manual assignment by the user:
Select the Assign IP parameters option button.
3. Make the remaining settings depending on how the IP address is assigned:
IP address from a DHCP server
– Specify how the device will be identified by selecting one of the option buttons: MAC
address, Device name or Client ID.
– If you have selected a device name, you can assign or change the device name of a
PROFINET device. You can open the relevant dialog box by clicking on the Assign
Name button. If devices do not support this function, you will receive a message to this
effect if you click the button.
Manual assignment of the IP address
– Enter a valid IP address for the device in the IP address box.
– Enter a valid subnet mask in the Subnet mask box.
– If necessary, put a check mark in the Use router box and enter the IP address for the
router the module will use in the input box beside it.

Remove Module
You can remove a module from the list in the left part of the program window by selecting the
Module > Remove Module menu command. This command has no effect on the existence of
a module in the network. The next time you browse the network, all the modules will be
shown again.
Changing a device name
If the device supports this function, you can assign a new PROFINET IO device name to the
device with the Module > Assign Device Name menu command. The new name is subject to
the following constraints:
● The device name must meet the requirements of the Domain Name System (DNS)
● Maximum length 240 characters; minimum length 1 character (letters, numbers, hyphen,
or period).
● A section within the device name, in other words, a string between two periods, must not
exceed 63 characters.
● The device name must not start or end with a hyphen.
● The device name must not have the format n.n.n.n (n = 0 to 999).
● The device name must not begin with the string port-xyz- (x,y,z = 0 to 9).
● Umlauts (ä, ö etc.) are not allowed.
Detecting a device
With the Module > Buzz menu command, you can make the port LEDs of the relevant device
flash. After selecting this menu command, a dialog opens in which you can start and stop
signaling.
The flashing LEDS indicate which device is assigned to a particular list entry in the program
window.
Resetting to factory settings
If the device supports this function, you can reset the device to its factory defaults using the
Module > Reset menu command.
After the reset, the devices can only be reached using the factory-set MAC address.
Refer to the documentation of the module in question to find out what effect the command
will have.
