3500 series engines Cat Data link

Is it possible to connect the Cat data link between multiple engines and access / choose which one to interface from one connection with CAT ET software or does each engine CAT data link need to be kept seperate?


For clarification I have 6 3516 engines and instead of plugging in to each engine individually I would like to make a single connection point


I could run set of wires for each data link to common location, but that would require running new cabling, however i have existing cabling in place and if possible would like to use that, but would need to have 3 engines connected to the same pair - 3 engines connected to same data link -.
