    Hi Guys and girls,

    Might seem like a bit of a simple question really, but i just want to make sure.
    I am looking at using a mini ITX motherboard at work (I'm an automation engineer) with dual LAN ports. Its in a net-top pc (so i can mount it on VESA mountings on the back of a touchscreen). I want to have one port sit on our "dirty" control network and one port sit on the company's "clean" network at the same time. Has anyone tried to do something similar and succeeded or hit problems.

    I am not looking to bridge the networks (I don't think anyway).

    My other solution is just to do what we do with our laptops when programming the machines and have the inbuilt LAN port sit on the company's network and a USB to ENET adapter sit on our network. It would just look a lot niccer having both ports inbuilt.

    I reckon to have searched about and can't find a great deal on it to confirm or deny the possibilities.

    Thanks in advance
