Hi Jens,

Thank you for your update. Can you give me some details - was it a Step 7 program that you had to change or have you got a patch from Siemens?

Btw, I'm trying to connect S7-200 PLC via serial line using asyn Modbus driver and Siemens Modbus library. So far it's not working (the communication works fine, I get the error message from the slave, so I hope I can fix it soon). 

Best regards,
Konrad.
