Hey All, apologies if this isn’t the correct place to ask presales questions. PIcking through the documentation it’s not clear if my use case is possible with ZeroTier.
We have a product that is basically a raspberry pi that sits in a third party facility with no access to the 3rd party managed network configuration. These are typically corporate networks with strict policies; we get internet and LAN access but no port forwarding or routing capabilities. Facility network configurations are typically unique in terms of subnets although some coincidently use the same subnets. Public IP is typically static.
The rpi currently captures data from serial and network devices then pushes the captured data to an AWS api.
The goal is to facility access and monitoring of all rpis and LAN devices behind the rpis. The rpi nodes do not have to interact with each other. Currently we use remote.it for remote access to rpis.
We have 4 objectives:
Place all rpis on a single network with a centralized server for secure access/data transfer. ZeroTier provides this.
At each facility, bridge the VPN to LAN to allow rpi to access local resources ie capture data from a LAN device via telnet and pass to the centralized server in the ZeroTier VPN. ZT provides this as well.
Provide ability for a developer device ie PC to connect to the VPN and access each rpi for services like ssh. ZT provides this.
Also provide the ability for the developer device to communicate with the LAN devices behind each rpi. This is probably the part I’m confused about.
Appreciate your time. Thanks.
