The communication type EIBlib/IP, which is not a standardized KNX protocol is the predecessor of KNXnet/IP and requires a device with a built-in ETS client. This is software that is integrated in some IP-Gateways. For this type of communication, one needs to know the IP address of the IP Gateway.
KNX Association decided to support this protocol in ETS via a payable ETS App.
Follow these instructions in order to activate the app:
- Purchase a license from MyKNX
- License it as explained here
- No additional *.etsapp file needs to be installed
Use of the ΕΙΒlib/IP app in ETS
Once the ΕΙΒlib/IP app is activated (i.e. its license has been added via ETS), it is possible to create a bus interface based on this protocol via the 'Connection manager'.
