Micrologix 1400 to Powerflex 525 over ethernet

Hi all,
Great forum first time at posting. Have been searching but can't find any info on the above subject. I have set IP adrresses in PF525 and ML1400 and can communicate to them but the 525 does not seem to register my start commands. I can open the Control Bar in CCW and start the 525 from there and then i am able to start and stop the 525 thru the ML but i cant control it purely from the PLC. Can anyone tell me if i need to set any of the Datalinks parameters in the 525? Parameters C153 to C160 are the ones i think i need to modify but am unsure what to set them at? The Ethernet light on the 525 is flashing which means its is connected to the network but not being controlled through ethernet. Sorry for the confusing description but i have been going round in circles on this for the last 12 hours and it is doing my head in! Any help really appreciated....

C129-C136 should be set to your IP address and subnet mask.
Also, P046 (start reference) should be set to 5 for ethernet. P047 should be set to 15 for ethernet also. Here's a list of parameters we set when we use 525's over ethernet.

P031, P032, P033, P034, P035, P036, P037, P039, P041, P042, P043, P044, P046, P047

Check out http://literature.rockwellautomation...m001_-en-e.pdf on page 61/62

EDIT: As for C153-160, I've never messed with them.
