Dear forum members,
i have the following issue to deal with:
The business I’m serving uses SNAP-PAC S2 Controller. The only Interface that is used is ENET1 within the automation network. There are also SNAP-PAC EB1 brians used in the same network.
Is it possible to create a second network, using ENET2 so that all the EB1-brains can communicate in the subnet while the PAC S2 Controller functions as a router? So that we are able to monitor the subnet from the superior automation network, which is connected on ENET1 Interface?
However, I was not able to clarify my issue via the controller’s manuals or OPTO’s network documentary. I only found out, that there is no way to reach the subnet on ENET2 via automation network on ENET1.
Could it help to register the IP-address of ENET1 as the gateway-address of ENET2?
If it’s not possible, does anyone have experienced creating some kind of “bypass” in form of a additional router, that is connected either to automation network and subnet?
Primary this configuration shall offer monitoring possibilities.
