Modify the EDIBAS.INI as follows RemoteHost ; Description : server address/name ; Default = – ; RemoteHost = Desmo16 Desmo16 being my computer’s name (note that this must be maximum 8 chars) and Port ; Description : IP communication port ; Value : 1000 < port < 30000 ; ; Spezialfall OP(P)S /ICOM: ; Value : 6801 ;OBD-Treiber (CAN) ; Value : 6802 ;Most-Treiber ; ; Default = – ; Port = 6801 OBD2 notice that you should be sure port is 6801 as mine was 3000. It worked like a charm after i made these mods.
