Hope this is the right place for this. (Support shows it as an active product, but all search results reside in support.). Any better category suggestions are welcome. I ask forgiveness for any newbie trangressions in advance…
I have several mobile embedded PC’s and paired with an equal number of ConnectPort WANs. The function of the PC is scientific in nature, collecting and collating data from several RS232/485 serial sensors. The function of the CP WAN is primary data transmission with iridium satellite backup. The PC has 2 ethernet connections. One is connected to the CP WAN, the other is unused.
I have new radiation detectors that have an ethernet interface. I would like to communicate locally betwen the PC and a single detector using the CP WAN as a switch, so to speak. This would leave me with 1 available ethernet port on the PC and 2 on the CP WAN for future use.
I’ve waded through hours of CP WAN documentation and KB articles without even finding the terminology to describe what I would like to do.
Is this ‘doable’ and what is it called, so that I may drill down on it?
