Disable comm driver

What is the best/easiest way to manually disable comms to a device that is missing? I have devices that are offline at times and I want to optimize comms by preventing the driver from trying to constantly attempt comms to a device that I know is offline. Is there a setting I can toggle? Thanks.

You can create an expression in the ports IP Address Field to set it to INVALID at certain conditions. This will turn a TCP/IP port into a listener port which will prevent it from trying to connect to a device.

Her is an example expression where the value of the IP Address field is invalid if 'myDiscreteTag' == 0 and 129.168.0.100 if 'myDiscreteTag' == 1.

[myDiscreteTag] ? "192.168.0.100" : INVALID

You can get a whole lot more clever about how you make all this work but the method above might be the simplest way to achieve what you're looking for.
