Can I remotely scan a customer network with Toolkit and just a CNI (C-Bus Network Interface)?

Yes, you will need to purchase and configure a CNI for the network, once you have set a static IP on the CNI you will need to setup Port Forwarding in the customers Modem/Router.

You will need to create a Port forward Rule, to allow port 10001 from External to Port 10001 Internal at the IP address of the CNI.
For help with Port Forwarding go to a service like https://www.portforward.com

Once this has been configured, you will need to configure the confection in Toolkit to use either a CNI or Wiser connection type, enter the IP address that the ISP has assigned to that customers connection (Not the internal IP of the CNI), the Port should already be set to 10001 - Do not change this.

The External IP can be either Dynamic or Static, if it's Static this will not change, but if Dynamic you will need to use a method to be able to check what the current External IP is before trying to connect.

You can use a service like https://dyn.com/dns/ sign up for an account and enter those details into the customer Modem, to check the IP you will need to go to a Command Prompt (CMD) and Ping the URL address, it will respond with the current External IP address that the ISP has assigned to the customers Internet Connection

Can a CNI (5500CN2) handle simultaneous connections from 2 different devices?

No. Unfortunately, only one concurrent connection can be established to this unit at a time.

Can I use the latest Control System IP Utility V1.5.0.3 programming the old CNI (5500CN)?

No, Control System IP Utility V1.5.0.3 doesn't support the old CNI (5500CN), it can only be used programming the CN2 (5500CN2).
Program the old CNI (5500CN) requires the old Control System IP Utility V1.3 or Lantronix DeviceInstaller V4.4.0.2.

What is the alternative for the C-bus network interface 5100CN2?

The alternative/ replacement part for the the 5100CN2 C-bus network interface is the 5500CN2 C-bus network interface.
The C-Bus Computer Network Interface (CNI) is a C-Bus system device designed to provide an isolated communications path between an Ethernet 10Base-T Network and a C-Bus Network. This allows high-speed control and monitoring of a C-Bus installation via the TCP/IP protocols used in computer networks and by the Internet.

The CNI is a nearly instantaneous connection to a C-Bus network. It provides a gateway between high-speed, high bandwidth Ethernet communication and the robust, timetested Clipsal C-Bus Automation System. System integrators and installers can program a C-Bus network remotely without the need for transporting a PC to the local C-Bus network and connecting via the serial port.
