Modbus Serial to Modbus TCP

Dear all,
we already configure all tag in current plant with Modbus Serial Port,
is there any easiest way to convert this project to Modbus TCP Port, so we don't have to re link all the tag?

You should just need to add a new port tag and update the Modbus driver tag to suit. All of the I/O tags will link to the driver and should work just fine.

If you have made the driver a child of your existing port tag, you can always just make a new port tag, make a new child tag as a dummy (a calculation tag is a good one for a placeholder) then copy and paste your driver tag (with the children) into the correct place in the tree for your new port tag.

Does this make sense?

Yes, we have create new TCP/IP port tag and copy all child tag of Existing port tag (serial port),
yes the value can be read now. but all object (linked) still have to link again manually one by one,

is there easiest way? we don't have to re link all objet to new tag in new port
