RTDE interface cannot initialize. Make sure that Ethernet/IP adapter and PROFINET are disabled


I have recently upgraded form UR10 to UR16e, connected to S7-1200 via PROFINET. When I try to run the program on robot with UR16e, I get the error message in the title. With UR10, this was not an issue, was able to easily write/read registers and control the program flow from the PLC. With UR16e, only when I disable the PROFINET, program runs. However I need to use Profinet interface to collect signals from the PLC. Is there any way?

Thanks in advance!

Very likely you need to be in remote control mode.
