I have a system with Ethernet connection. I connect a notebook computer to this system using Ethernet interface. I run web browser on the notebook and put in the URL to communicate with the system and it presents me diagrams and control options. Now I want to Use the WiFi connection on my notebook to achieve the same thing. I want to connect a Pi via Ethernet to the system over some considerable length. I want to be able to connect my notebook to the WiFi connection provided on the PI and have the same functionality as I did with direct connection to the system.
So my question: what software do I need to run on the Pi so that I can use my Notebook WiFi to communicate to the system using the WiFi on the notebook through the Pi to the system?
Do I need to write some software to do this? - If so what are some things I need to consider if I am to write this in C?
It seems to me that this must be possible and simple. I do not know what terminology to use to search for the right things. Would liker to know if there is a free ware software which can already do this.
I’m not sure whether it’s specific to this application (I don’t think with the exception of PiHole projects I’ve ever seen a Pi used as any kind of network device so I’d be impressed to see how you do it!) But I’d check out this series of links I put together for headless setup on a Raspberry Pi, should be quite useful in at least connecting to the Pi remotely for a few applications so that you can start setting this up.
