Network Port forwarding for AWC-608C

Postby ddt154 » Mon Oct 15, 2018 4:38 am

So I have had this controller for quite sometime, however because of it's location and lack of WiFi, I had not connected it. We now have wired ethernet network connectivity to it, however it is on a different subnet than where CAD/CAM workstations are (aka LaserCAD). To do a L2 VLAN to put them on the same subnet would be difficult, however it would be easier to do port-forwarding from the router to the AWC-608C. To do this, we need to understand what ports and network communication the AWC-608C uses in order to do this. Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,
Drew

Nevermind. Setup controller on a /30 subnet, Used RaspberryPi with WiFi (wlan0) and Eth (eth0) interface, then setup IP forwarding and NAT translation on eth0. So, virtually controller is now connected via WiFi, ANY network traffic is now masked behind NAT'd eth0 interface of rPI, so laser controller is not aware traffic coming to it is from other subnets.
