Detailed Description

The QModbusTcpServer class represents a Modbus server that uses a TCP server for its communication with the Modbus client.

Communication via Modbus requires the interaction between a single Modbus client instance and single Modbus server. This class provides the Modbus server implementation via a TCP server.

Modbus TCP networks can have multiple servers. Servers are read/written by a client device represented by QModbusTcpClient.

Member Function Documentation

QModbusTcpServer::QModbusTcpServer(QObject *parent = nullptr)

Constructs a QModbusTcpServer with the specified parent. The serverAddress preset is 255.

[virtual] QModbusTcpServer::~QModbusTcpServer()

Destroys the QModbusTcpServer instance.

[override virtual protected] void QModbusTcpServer::close()

Reimplemented from QModbusDevice::close().

[override virtual protected] bool QModbusTcpServer::open()

Reimplemented from QModbusDevice::open().

[override virtual protected] QModbusResponse QModbusTcpServer::processRequest(const QModbusPdu &request)

Reimplemented from QModbusServer::processRequest().

Processes the Modbus client request specified by request and returns a Modbus response.

The following Modbus function codes are filtered out as they are serial line only according to the Modbus Application Protocol Specification 1.1b:

A request to the TCP server will be answered with a Modbus exception response with the exception code QModbusExceptionResponse::IllegalFunction.
