Hi,

I don't recall anything coming through the forum from you.  It might not have 
worked.


try setting the "ethercat debug 1" command (debug level 1) before running your 
app.  Then check the dmesg log to see it you can find out what it's getting 
stuck on.  There's also a debug 2 level, but that might be a bit too much 
information to wade through.


Regards,
Graeme.

Hi Graeme,

Sorry for the inconvenience. I had posted on the forum but did not get any 
reply for a week. I found your e-mail id and thought of emailing you.

As far as the application is concerned, I dont know why but it stalls at 
'Acknowledged PRE-OP'. It does not go beyond the pre-op stage.

Regards,
Rahul
