I suspect the answer will be "no" or "continue using the switch", but I thought I'd ask:
Is it possible to share a network connection between the two ports on a Ti? We'd like to run a Designer (Client) Laptop out of Port 2 of our Programming (Client) Ti while at our production desk. There is an RPU (Master) and another Ti (Backup) in the system in our control room. We're currently using a switch to resolve this, but the RJ45 is getting trashed so we'd like to swap it out for Ethercon straight into the back of the Ti.
I know in Windows that you can 'Share Network Connection' between ports, so I'm wondering if this is something that could be done on the Programming Ti?
-- EDIT --
With our old Classic, we used to be able to share the connection between EOS and Client laptop (obviously because there was a switch in the EOS with one NIC).
is there a reason why you wouldn't want to use the second port with a different set of IPs and subnet?
If I were to have a different IP and subnet on Port 2, would I be able to connect the Client to this and then join the Multiconsole session?
i claim that this works although i have never tried it
Great, thanks- I'll try that when I'm at the desk tomorrow. I always assumed that it wouldn't work because they were on different ranges. I tried setting Port 2 to being on the same IP range and subnet as Port 1 (which gave me the red error of 'Cannot be on same subnet etc...'), but that also didn't allow me to join the multi console session...
ueliriegg Morning, I've just tried the different IP range on Port 2 and it doesn't want to connect. The client laptop says that it cannot connect to Master, presumably because there's no direct route to the Master?
Just had confirmation from Support that this will not work, unless through a switch.
Thanks for the update!
