You can use the open communication through UDP connections for data exchange by way of the Industrial Ethernet CPs of S7-300 and S7-400.
Below we describe how to configure a UDP connection for sending and receiving data by way of an Industrial Ethernet CP of S7-300 and S7-400.

The functions below are called in the user program of the CPU for sending and receiving data by way of configured ISO-on-TCP connections.
- FC5 "AG_SEND" and FC6 "AG_RECV" for the S7-300
- FC50 "AG_LSEND" and FC60 "AG_LRECV" for the S7-400
The entries below contain sample programs and instructions for programming the above-mentioned functions in the user programs of S7-300 and S7-400: 17853532 and 18513371.
