I have a requirement to connect a device to the airunit 1.1 via ethernet and to be able to access it from a laptop on the ground. The setup would be:
Laptop → WiFi Router → Herelink Controller → Bridge → AirUnit1.1 → device
“think raspberry pi being SSH’d into from the Laptop” for example…
I’ve performed a number of tests and it appears that this setup is not possible?
I’ve moved to trying the “hotspot” option rather than WiFi Router…
Laptop → Herelink Controller (hotspot mode) → Bridge → Airunit1.1 → device
and I can now ping the device (from the laptop)
I think I’ve read all the available information, and I believe my tests are consistent with the suggestions or approaches in those articles/forum posts. So… “Is it possible to use a WiFi router to get the same results as the Hotspot configuration?”
In addition to this, the AirUnit to Controller bridge seem to have fixed IP addresses. Why is this? Could these be configurable? If I were to ever get multiple aircraft on a single network, wouldn’t these addresses need to be changed?
