I’ve successfully deployed my first BalenaCloud project, taking RFID chips numbers from a RFID reader, and sending it on to an API on my server.
Unfortunately the RFID reader I use does not have wifi, only ethernet. And initially I was going to let the reader send its data to my server directly, but I decided to use a Pi instead to first de-duplicate the data and then send it on. With the initial setup (pre-Pi) I added a small TPlink wifi-etheret bridge to allow the reader to connect to my wifi network. Now that I use a Pi however, I’d like to plug the reader directly into the Pi.
Now since the config file for the Pi gets overwritten when using BalenaCloud, are there settings I can set in the device configuration setup or elsewhere, that would bridge my Pi’s ethernet and wifi adapters? From what I’ve read I could probably do this with a multicontainer setup, but for the moment this is a bit above my experience level.
