Ediabas OBD Configuration

Hi there,

Havent managed to get ISTA+ to work with OBD yet. Seems some additional sorcery is needed.
I've installed the kit you normally get via PM.

Cable's drivers are installed and it's set to COM9, Latency 1ms 9600 8N1.
I've put COM9 in obd.ini but i had Hardware=USB, changed it to OBD.

In the ediabas.ini file the TCP section reads Port = 6801 and RemoteHost =

I'm a bit confused about the RemostHost option. What ip should that be pointing to? I've kept the lan cable unplugged via VMware. Does EDIABAS need a functioning network interface to work?

As of now, ISTA+ is giving me the IFH-0003 error and i really cant seem to wrap my head around it.

Any tips?

P.S. The cable is working on another virtual machine with windows xp, but only has some older outdated tools (hence why i tried getting ISTA+ to work).
