Hardware at my disposal
2 laptops, with working battteries and wireless. an air card and a Logitec pro 9000 webcam
Record and film animals (feral hogs) feeding from a feeder.
There is a large pin/cage/trap used to catch and castrate young hogs that i can use to set a laptop and camera. A natural blind is about 50 yards from the feeder and trap where I can hide and set up the second laptop. I would like to be able to remotely control the camera laptop from the blind. There isnt a power source(in the middle of the woods, so i cant set up a router to create network. I speculate that i could set up workgroup with static ips, but it doesnt seem right in my minds eye with out a device (switch or router) to connect the the two devices.
Maybe i could create a workgroup, have the camera laptop point to the blind laptop as a gateway?? Anyways i know i can set this up in my house and test all the variables out, but thought someone might enjoy thinking this through with me, and maybe suggest something I might be missing. I dont need a solution for acouple of weeks. Lets herar your thoughts.
