Yes, this is called developing in client mode. This turns off ethernet as being a dhcp server and turns it into a dhcp client so you can use your local internet access. You'll need either local hdmi console access or network access to the router you plug into to find your address.
edgerouter -m client
and to switch back to edge mode using rf mesh as backhaul
edgerouter -m edge
Hi, since I am logged in as dev and not as root it does not allow me to change the mode of the IOT ER.
The command should be 'sudo edgerouter -m client' which that user has permissions to run. You can find more on how to switch modes in the getting started guide.
The IoT Edge Router can be run in one of twomodes:
To run in Client mode, issue the following command:
sudo edgerouter -m client
To run in Edge Router mode, issue the following command:
sudo edgerouter -m edge
