I am using the linux system from a Controller - AXC F 2152 and i have a question:

Is it possible to make a *.zip archive @PLC level (AXC F 2152)?

I want to tell you that I was able to make a *.tar archive but not a *.zip.  If possible, can you tell me how can i do this on the linux OS from AXC F 2152, give me some advice? Do I need to install certain tools and if so, how can I do this on the PLC level?

Many thanks in advance!

The "zip" command-line tool is not included with the PLCnext firmware, so you would have to build and install this utility yourself.

Out of interest, why are other compression formats like .gz not suitable in your case? Most archive software for PCs (e.g. 7-zip) support multiple formats.
