Training Exercise Connecting to a Siemens S7-300 PLC


Where is “Create Tags hyperlink” on 2.6 in connecting-kepserverex-to-siemens-s7-300-exercise-1533920175027.pdf. I use KEPServerEX V6.6.350.0. There is no hyperlink in Tag Generation property group.


There are two common issues that cause this. (1) The device model is not set properly (S7-300), or (2) The Runtime is disconnected from the Configuration Window (if this is the case, it will say “Offline” on the bottom right side of the window). Go to Runtime > Connect


I laura,

I have on another issue with this exercise. I see the hyperlink “Create tags” but when I click on There are not any tags in the list.

Please help me to understand why ?


PS : S7-300 model is ok and Rutime is connect


I Laura,

I found the mistake of my issue. On my laptop where i did the exercice I did not have any SIEMENS Software.
I did the same exercise on my engineering computer and it works.

Do you think that is the right explanation ?

Best Regards



Another explanation could be that the IP is blocked from the network you were using. Were you trying this exercise from different networks?
