How do I access a Domain Computer via a Direct Connection
Posted on 2016-07-27
I have an older model CNC machine that requires a direct connection to a host PC. That PC is also part of a domain. To solve this, a second NIC was installed into the Domain PC and given a separate IP address with a different netwokr id (192.168.2 vs. 10.1.50). The CNC controller can ping the host PC, but I cannot get it to connect and extract the files needed. Since I can ping the host, my belief is that it has to be a permission problem. Complicating this is that there is no DNS server available to that CNC thus there is no way to resolve the server name. Recognizing that, the IP address was used instead, but still no connection. Any ideas? The OS on the CNC is Windows CE; the host is running W7 Pro.
