I know this isn’t directly related to Opto 22’s products but I was wondering what other people are using to connect to an R1-W. This is my scenario:
I have a client with an R1-W Brain on their factory floor. This is a dedicated small network surrounding the process. This is located in Oregon. I want to send them a cellular device that is configured to remotely connect to the R1-W. Since I have a Verizon jetpack device, I wanted to set it up with port forwarding (22001 for PAC Control and 2201 for PAC Manager) so they could just turn on the cellular device and I would be able to connect to the R1-W for upgrades or what not.
As I was trying to test this before I sent the device, I found out that this jetpack does not receive a static IP address. I can get one for it, but they charge $500.00 for that service. Is there something out there that I can achieve this without paying the $500 fee? I have used Red Lion cellular modems that are permanently mounted on sites, but those are expensive units.
