How can we help you?
Please elaborate more information.

Here is what I know

You are using RS Emulate with RS Linx to sim a program.
You are trying to use the emulated program to communicate with another PLC.
You are changing controller types (What do you mean by this? What controller are you changing and why?)

Here's what I need to know.

How are the comms established in the PLC program? Are they Prod / Cons ? Are they CIP?

What is the type of connection? Is it serial? ethernet? DH+ RIO? DeviceNet?
How is Linx configured?
Are you trying to get the simulated PLC to talk to a live PLC?
What PLC are you trying to communicate to?

i) Take care of the bits, and the bytes will take care of themselves.
ii) There is no software problem that cannot be solved with another layer of indirection.
iii) Measurement is hard.
iv) I solemnly swear that I am up to no good

vi) Hakuna matata.
