Limits for CI868 as MMS Server

I want to connect AC800M to a Siemens SCADA with IEC61850.

Is this possible with CI868, can it support MMS and Report Control Blocks? I can only find MMS Client described in the manuals...

If yes what are the Limits, how many Report Control Blocks / Data Objects /Subscribers can be supported by one CI868 if it only is used as MMS Server?

CI868 can only act as MMS client till 5.1 FP4 version.

I am not sure about 6.0.

ok.. thanks for the information.
Does anyone know how this could be done instead, connect 800xA / AC800M to an IEC61850 SCADA? Using some kind of Gateway or Protocol converter?

AC800M with CI867 as Modbus Slave - Protocol Converter (Modbus Master/IEC61850 Server) - IEC61850 SCADA (Client)
