I have two Data Centers, each of them in different location, they both use NAT to provide transparency to public IP addresses.
I have to provide solution to a business requirement; I'd like to purchase the necessary equipment.
I have two Data Center, one is a Development Environment and the other is a Commercial Environment, both geographically dispersed.
I have some remote wireless devices (cell phones) transmitting data to my Development Environment
Every once in a while developers want those cell phones to communicate to the Commercial Environment
I can not reprogram the cell phones remotely with the new IPs
I need to somehow take the IP traffic from Dev Env and forward it to Comm Env for the required time window. It would be something like this:
Take everything coming to Internal IP on Dev Env 22.214.171.124:3200 and forward it to 126.96.36.199:3200 (leaving the rest of TCP and UDP unmolested)
I don’t know if a Cisco router could solve my problem.
What would be the best solution?
Can the router be installed inside my NATted network on Dev Env with a private IP and create a rule that forward the desired traffic to a Public IP on the Comm Env?
What kind of router do I need?
