A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a service that lets you access the web safely and privately by routing your connection through a server and hiding your online actions
To protect the SINEMA RC Server from unauthorized access, system access is protected in several ways:Authentication:
To check the identity a certificate is used
User rights and roles
The task-dependent access rights are specified using roles and user rights.

The SINEMA RC Server application can also be installed in a virtual machine.
If you want to install the SINEMA RC Server application on a virtual machine, create a partition for a 64-bit Ubuntu system. SINEMA RC itself is an application that already brings the 64-bit Ubuntu system with it as the operating system and installs it like an operating system.
As the number of subnets is also dependent on the communication relationships permitted among one another, for example, these must be checked/questioned and restricted, where necessary. If devices do not need to communicate with each other, you should suppress communication in order to ensure optimal behavior of the devices.
If a connection is established between the SINEMA RC Server and the SCALANCE router, the router automatically requests firmware and certificate updates. This request is made cyclically at specified time intervals, which you can set as the "Autoenrollment Interval" parameter on the router.
ØThe connection to SINEMA RC can be established via various media such as mobile wireless, DSL or existing private network infrastructures.

The frequency range of the antenna depends on the device being used
A power supply with a voltage between 12 VDC and 24 VDC that can provide sufficient current.
A SIM card from the chosen mobile wireless provider.
In the factory settings, the SCALANCE M87x can be reached at the following IPv4 address:
IP address: 192.168.1.1
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
To establish a VPN (Virtual Private Network)the following functions are available
Among other features, it provides the following functions:
Central Control and monitoring of distributed remote terminal units. The control center is composed of visualization or SCADA software, appropriate telecontrol products for telecontrol protocols and if necessary, node stations and products for connecting to public or private networks (Remote Networks).
Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) are located at substations of telecontrol plants and monitor and control widespread measuring points and processes. Depending on the complexity of task different RTUs are used. Required process instrumentation (actuator and sensors) are directly connected to the RTUs.
Siemens offers an extensive portfolio of modems and industrial routers for the connection of remote terminal units to the control center.
With our comprehensive offering for modular RTUs based on SIMATIC controllers, you can flexibly adapt your substations to your requirements.
For the connection of modular RTUs, we offer communication modules in the form of communication processors (CPs) and Telecontrol Interface Modules (TIMs) as well as necessary modems and routers for communication via Remote Networks.
Remote reliability: The compact SIMATIC RTUs with separate power supply as autonomous telecontrol units also in the most remote regions and under harshest environmental conditions.
TeleControl Server Basic is recommended for simple monitoring and supervision tasks, for the transfer of process data or for remote diagnostics and remote maintenance. Typical areas of application include the control of process plants, the optimized operation of municipal facilities for water treatment, power distribution, and traffic monitoring as well as servicing and maintenance.
The control center software TeleControl Server Basic acts as OPC UA server und connects the HMI system (e.g. WinCC) with substations (RTUs). The system supports the connection of both modular RTUs based on S7-1200 or Distributed Controller SIMATIC ET 200SP and the compact remote terminal units, SIMATIC RTU3000C.
Communication takes place via public or private networks e.g. mobile wireless network or Internet.
The complexity and the number of nodes in Ethernet-based production networks are growing constantly due to increasing requirements. The failure of individual devices in such networks can mean loss of production and, in the worst case, bring the production chain to a standstill. To minimize unproductive times and the resulting costs, transparency of networks with continuous network monitoring is indispensable.
In the current IT market, most of the network management tools are designed for the needs of IT enterprise networks and not for industrial networks. The standard IT network management tools cannot be used for all industrial networks, because they are expensive and too complicated for the plant and maintenance staff. SINEMA Server is Web-enabled network management software designed by Siemens for use in Industrial Ethernet networks. SINEMA Server allows simple and efficient monitoring of network information and provides fault diagnostics and monitoring of the performance of distributed network devices in an industrial environment. The application provides accurate information based on changes occurring in the current network. This helps users to reduce the downtimes resulting from network failures during production.
SINEMA Server is a network management software application that is used to monitor and manage the devices and their statuses in Industrial Ethernet networks. SINEMA Server monitors the programmable controllers and wireless devices connected to LANs or WLANs as well as infrastructure components, such as Industrial Ethernet switches and Industrial Wireless LAN access points. SINEMA Server's "Auto discovery" functionality automatically detects not only the controllers and infrastructure components but also their parameters if these are relevant to the network. The software then calculates the network topology and statistics from this information. Users can view this information on the SINEMA Server Web interface. If they wish, users can also obtain more detailed information with additional diagnostics screens.

With the various functionalities of SINEMA Server, users can improve their production capabilities and avoid unnecessary production losses in their daily routine. SINEMA Server diagnoses and visualizes Ethernet networks
SINEMA Server queries the data of Ethernet nodes cyclically during operation, and reports network alarms. Changes in the network, faults and availability are logged and archived in a database. The user then has this information available to document and analyze the network with the help of report functions, each of which can be set to a specific period.

Only users who have access to SINEMA Server can access SINEMA Server project data using an OPC server. You can use the OPC client to access an OPC server. Through an OPC server, you can access SINEMA Server configuration data and the properties of the network devices.
Any OPC client can be used to interact with an OPC server. You can use the OPC server to view the runtime data and properties of a SINEMA Server project and can also modify the values for the runtime data.
