How do you access BACnet MS/TP devices under a UNC without making a direct connection to the MS/TP bus? Tunneling is supported with LON and ASD devices but there is no tunnel client for BACnet.

UNC with BACnet MS/TP devices
Want to connect WPT through the UNC to access the MS/TP network attached to the UNC
Tunneling is not required to access MS/TP devices under a UNC.
Since the UNC is already a BACnet device because it has BACnet MS/TP devices connected to it, you can enable BACnet-IP or BACnet-Ethernet on the UNC. Once either of these protocols have been enabled, the UNC then acts as a BACnet router allowing BACnet communications to the MS/TP devices directly via the ethernet connection to the UNC.
