How to Connect to an Ethernet Device for Communication
This whitepaper by Acromag will, through various examples, show readers how to connect single or multiple Ethernet adapters to enable communications in a host of systems.
Ethernet technology introduces increased speed, greater throughout, reliability, and efficiency to the world of communications. Ethernet is a system of connecting more than two devices to form a Local Area Network (LAN) for sharing information and resources, technically referred to as the IEEE 802.3 protocol standard. It was designed to use a shared medium for communication with other devices. Internet Protocol (IP) is the only addressing protocol utilized by Ethernet systems worldwide, which is done either through Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) or User Datagram Protocol (UDP) data transmission.
This whitepaper by Acromag will, through various examples, show readers how to connect single or multiple Ethernet adapters to enable communications in a host of systems. It also outlines the distinctions between IP addresses and offers information on static addresses, remotely accessing Ethernet devices connected to LANs, setting up Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), firewalls, and many more.
