Hello

PI server and PI OPC client are installed in the same machine with IP:10.0.0.6 Mask:255.255.255.0 while 3rd party OPC server is installed on different LAN with IP:196.164.0.1 Mask:255.255.255.0

I used Ping command line to check the network connectivity but there is no response (time-out). there is a windows XP workstation with two Ethernet adapters one of these Ethernet adapter connected to LAN 10.0.0.0 and the other is connected to LAN 196.164.0.0, when I ping from this XP workstation I can get the response from each network.

my questions:

1-how to establish the connectivity between PI OPC client and OPC server over these two LAN networks? did I need a dedicated router or I can use XP worstation?

2- if I used XP workstation shall I configure DCOM setting in this workstation?

3- is there a software in the market to act as a router / gateway between these two LAN?
