[etherlab-users] Communicating with Ethercat over TCP/IP network

I've read that Ethercat packets can be sent over a network by packing them into UDP datagrams. Is it therefore possible to connect the Ethercat bus with slaves to a network and have the master controller pc not directly connected to the slaves but connected to the same network and hence transfer the Ethercat data to and from the slaves over the network? I assume the timing performance will be worse, but how is this achieved? Thanks
