Can I connect the eWON to multiple LAN networks?
Last Updated 6 months ago

The eWON is designed by default to work with only one LAN network, however to allow connection to more than one LAN network, connection to a router is required to provide a gateway to the additional network.

These are the steps to connecting multiple LAN networks -
Step 1: Use a router for each different LAN network and
Step 2: Configure the static routes table in the eWON
Step 3: On eCatcher side, after having connected the eWon, you must add routes manually to the PC with the command ROUTE ADD.


Step 2 Details:
On the Flexy, navigate to Setup>System>Communication>Networking Routing>Static routes tables
See attached eWON static router configuration picture for the example below -
If the eWON IP address 192.168.2.1, 255.255.255.0.

Machine LAN IP address1 is 192.168.3.0, 255.255.255.0
Machine LAN IP address2 is 192.168.4.0, 255.255.255.0

Router1 WAN IP address for Machine LAN 1: 192.168.2.3
Router2 WAN IP address for Machine LAN 2: 192.168.2.4

The static routes table gateway corresponds to the router WAN IP which has to be within the same range as the eWONs IP address.

For a Cosy, you need to edit the advanced COM parameters (https://hmsnetworks.blob.core.windows.net/www/docs/librariesprovider10/downloads-monitored/manuals/knowledge-base/kb-0050-00-en-ewon-comcfg-txt.pdf)

Step 3 Details:
On eCatcher side, after having connected the eWON, you must add routes manually to the PC with the command ROUTE ADD.
1. Open a cmd prompt as an Administrator (Run as admin)
2. Type "ROUTE ADD 192.168.3.0 MASK 255.255.255.0 10.212.3.6"
2. Type "ROUTE ADD 192.168.4.0 MASK 255.255.255.0 10.212.3.6"
where 10.212.3.6 is the eWO VPN IP that you can see in eCatcher. You can use a BAT file to automate that.
