Connecting Wfview to IC9700 via CAT cable direct

Hello,It is possible to connect my laptop to my IC-9700 directly via a CAT5 cable? I’ve been able to
connect to the radio via LAN through my router when both the laptop and IC-9700 are connected to the router. I’d like to take this combo on the road and have just a CAT5 network connected between the radio and computer.

I’ve been able to connect to the IC-9700 via USB cable but don’t have a waterfall. I can control the radio when connected via USB cable, IC-9700 is listed on the bottom right corner but no waterfall.

Thanks in advance for the help
