'[OT]: Siemens PLC S5 driver'

Hi, I might get a Siemens S5 series PLC and I'd like to write a Visual Basic
(v6)
program to talk to it to control a mashine. Example: to read registers for
an item-
counter and read and set I/O registers.

Can this be done ?
What do I need ?
I've heard I need a special serial cable?

I searched the net but didnt get much usefull :-/
TIA

  As the Net was not  usefull for you, the best way,
I think, would be for you to get one of evaluation
(or what are they named) boards with chippest
PIC18FXXX and RS232. Olimex has all this stuff,
if I'm not mistaken.
  Try to comunicate to the board from VB6 using
MSComm ActiveX controle.
  Then take a decision if you really want Siemens
S5 series PLC.

  Good luck. Mike.
