YachtSpot v4 builds on the features that were added in Yachtspot Marine WiFi v2, and v3, with further enhancements such as the ‘key list’ and ‘team connectors’ feature, which allows Yachtspot to partner with other IP Internet connection devices, e.g. 3G routers, etc… [connectors] and switch between them.
Teaming provides the installer with a centralised, structured solution which enables owners, and crew members, to manage multiple Internet connection devices easily. Teaming avoids the problems associated with having multiple DHCP servers on the LAN, it doesn’t require devices to be powered on, or off, it’s easy to use, and easy to understand.
To use teaming, Yachtspot must be running the only active DHCP server on the network. To configure, make sure all other DHCP servers are disabled, and all ‘connectors’ are set with a static IP address on the same subnet as the Yachtspot. Then enter the settings for each ‘connector’.
Teaming works by changing the Gateway, and DNS addresses supplied by DHCP, to those required to use the selected ‘connector’. A small executable is supplied to easily renew client settings.
