J. Dan Posted September 2, 2016 Share Posted September 2, 2016 I've had some Facebook discussion so I'll try to summarize what's already been discussed and the challenges. More and more with industrial products (think some device that measures temperature, pressure, flow) they have an Ethernet port with a built in web browser for interface. Each device has an IP address, you use your browser, type the IP address, and get a page to monitor readings and change configurations, I have all that working just fine - set my local network card to a fixed IP, type in the IP of the device, great. Here's the problem - I need to demo this live via webex. Normally as soon as I plug in a cable, instead of wifi, my computer tries to use the local connection, which is not connected to the Internet. It's a peer to peer connection to the device. I made some changes to my wireless card settings and successfully streamed a YouTube video while interfacing with the local device in another browser window. However webex didn't work. As soon as I plugged in the cable I got dropped from the meeting and it was trying to reconnect through the local connection, Any ideas?
