Initially, we will configure both targets to use DHCP and communicate with the host PC. Once communication is established, we will deploy a startup application and Shared Variable library to the private network target.
The private network target is now ready for use, after deploying the Shared Variable library, and LabVIEW application as a startup executable. We will now configure this controller for use on a private network, allowing communication with Ethernet port 2 of the dual port controller.
The following steps will configure the private network target with a static IP address, which resides in the same subnet as the secondary port of the dual port controller. (i.e. 192.168.1.4 for the secondary port and 192.168.1.5 for the private network target, with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.128).
The private network target is now running a LabVIEW startup application and publishing data via Shared Variables to its Ethernet port. Lastly, we will configure the Shared Variable nodes on the dual port controller to communicate with the private network controller.
Congratulations! You are now successfully communicating between the host PC and the private network target.
