Thanks for getting back to me. I wasn't able to see the data simulator nor was I able to connect to the KEPServer. Turns out I had a TCP/IP issue with my wsock32.dll. Once I resolved that, I was able to get everything working. I have the long weekend to thank for that! :-}
I found the doc you reference after I posted. Excellent tech note wich helped me after I fixed my computer problem.
The device I'm trying to connect to is an ABB PM564 PLC which I'm sure I'll need some help with but that's the subject of another post. :-}
