Apologies if this is the wrong forum, it's my first post.
I will try to be as concise as I can. I have tried to look for solutions and think I might have to use port forwarding.
I have an gas powered engine. The engine is connected to a router via an ethernet cable. The engine has a screen on with information regarding data and power etc
If I plug my laptop into the engine via ethernet, we have a HMI interface that we can use to duplicate the screen that is on the engine on the laptop.
I want to access this 'engine screen' remotely.
I have toyed with the idea of using a raspberry pi in the following setup.
I connect the pi to the engine via ethernet. I then connect the pi to the router via ethernet.
I then use VNCViewer on a different network, to view the pi and view the HMI interface to the engine.
I have read some great threads and guides on how to connect to a pi remotely which I feel very comfortable with.
My issue is, will the router and the engine both give my pi a different IP?
If anyone has any idea or suggestions they are much appreciated. If this is something that is not suited to this forum, then please forgive me and remove it!
Thanks in advance
