AC800M: Ethernet CN1 & CN2 - bridge connection possible ?
Hi everyone !
Does anybody knows wether is it possible to have a "network bridge" connection between the AC800M ethernet ports (CN1 & CN2) ? I mean, instead of using the redundancy feature, I would like to use them like a "network switch". Thanks in advance for your attention.

I assume no.
Even if the low level operating system running in the controller easily could be asked to bridge the ports, it was not the intention when equipping the AC 800M with dual Ethernet interfaces.
Hence, it is as far as I know, not possible to perform such configuration from Control Builder M.
I agree, it is not possible to use both ports as a switch, it is assumed to be redundant pair, e.g. 172.16.x.x and 172.17.x.x.
You cant't use it also in pass-trough mode, they are only possible to connect to control nettwork.
You should use external switches to distribute the signals
