Different IP subnets on one physical LAN
Posted on 2009-05-17
I inherited a LAN that is making use of an enitrie block of class c public IP address. These IP addresses are being used by LAN servers and DHCP workstations (22.214.171.124)
This is obviously not ideal and I'd like to eventually change the entire LAN to a private IP address range.
There are 5 servers and about 100 LAN clients.
There is a NAT firewall that will allow the implementation of private IP adress space
For the moment, I'd like to utilize a private IP address space for the DHCP LAN clients (192.168.0.0) and leave the servers on their exisiting 126.96.36.199 address space.
Ideally I'd like the LAN clients (on 192.168.0.0) to be able to ARP directly to the servers (on 188.8.131.52) without having to use a router.
The firewall's LAN interfaced is licensed to a specific public IP address (184.108.40.206)
Any idea's on the best way to go about this.
