Can't connect to target application in Simulink - Lego Mindstorms EV3

3 views (last 30 days)
the question is quite simple. I tried to control my LEGO ev3 block from MATLAB script and it works. However trying to run ev3 from simulink is not succesful. The error message is this:
External Mode Open Protocol Connect command failed
Caused by:
  • Could not connect to target application: XCP TCP/IP error: Connect failed
Does anybody know how could I succesfully connect simulink to ev3 ?
Thank you.
