Subject: EPICS connect to PLC:Illegal field value PV ;Connection timed out

Hello sir,
  I used the driver package  s7plc.tgz from PSI and tried to connetct the EPICS IOCsoft and siemens PLC317-2PN/DP  with TCP protocol. When the IOC starts, the problems like these followed:
Illegal field value PV: ai-int16-1 s7plcInitRecordAi: illegal INP field type

Illegal field value PV: ai-int16-1 s7plcGetInIntInfo: uninitialized record

s7plcReceiveThread Testsystem:0: read error after 0 of 10 bytes: Connection timed out

Is the cause of the problems the ioc failed to connect with PLC? Or there are other reasons?

Thank you.
Look forward to your answer.
Best regards,
Jie Xu
