You can connect the PLC to either a radio modem or to the internet via either TLServer or the XServer. After that you can remotely control the PLC anywhere in the world!

Through the Internet using TLServer works great. I have done it with one of my customers while we were in a testing phase on a new piece of equipment I automated for them.

I was able to monitor, test, and make code changes from my wireless (SPRINT CARD) laptop half across the country.

Just be sure to secure it every step of the way!

I knew that TLServer works great on Internet, but I mostly like to remote control the PLC without PC. And I also knew that we can use program to dial out from PLC via PLC connect with GSM modem, but does it possible to dial in into PLC or not?

As long as your landline or GSM modem can be set into auto-answer mode, you will be able to dial in to the PLC since after the modem answers the phone call and connected, the connection appears the same as if two PLC were connected by RS232 or RS485 port.
