my iPad does not have a SIM card and consequently, I am not able to use the Cellular > Personal Hotspot feature (menu is not visible) to connect the iPad to my PC via USB lightning cable.
Unfortunately, in my institution, the PC and iPad are in different networks separated by a firewall. The PC is in the LAN, whereas the iPad is in a WLAN controlled by a different organization. However, as a consequence, direct IP connection (via Ethernet cable or WLAN-to-LAN connection) is not possible. No way.
So I am doomed?
