A GSD file, which is read in the network configuration software of  PROFIBUS master, is used to establish, manage, and design networks on  your PC. There are several ways to obtain a copy of this file:

  2. Open a Web browser and go to the following addess  http://<RC8 IP   Address>/eds/. Replace <RC8 IP Address> for the IP address of your controller for example
