Titan – Example Scenario 1.4: Provide a PLC device with an Ethernet port with Internet access. WiFi devices will be able to access the Ethernet device but Internet access will be blocked

Details of the example scenario:

  • We have a PLC device with an ETH port which we want to provide with Internet access to send data to the Cloud. The PLC has a local IP address of 192.168.1.1
  • Several tablets will also connect to the router via WiFi (DHCP) which will need to be able to connect to the Ethernet device which is connected to the router for maintenance tasks, although Internet accesss must also be blocked for these. Only the Ethernet device should have Internet access

Solution: MTX-Router-Titan mini

Configuration example ready for use:

We can easily load the example from the router’s web configuration environment from the menu “Other>Backup/Examples”.

Details:

  1. After the configuration is loaded in our router, we can access the router’s configuration with the default username and password: “admin” and “admin”, and the IP address“192.168.1.2”
  2. Check the configuration in the menus “Wan>Basic Settings”, “WiFi>Basic Settings”, “WiFi>DHCP Server
  3. Remember that in order to work, the PLC’s IP address should be in the range of the router’s LAN IP address and we should specify the PLC’s Gateway IP address with the router’s LAN IP address. In this example, it would be 192.168.1.2
