5.16. emllRemote

The emllRemote is used to tunnel EtherCAT frames within a TCP socket between EC-Master and EC-Simulator.

The parameters to the Remote Real-time Ethernet Driver are setup-specific. The function CreateLinkParmsFromCmdLineRemote() in EcSelectLinkLayer.cpp demonstrates how to initialize the Real-time Ethernet Driver instance.
