To the experts,
Here is some background information before getting into my situation. I have a computer running Ubuntu 12.04 and Apache as its web server. This computer hosts a learning management system (LMS) which is accessible via a web browser: http://localhost/demo

The network that this web server is on is a Vlan (called BTS) and the main network is called MainBTS. From within the BTS network, all programmers and developers can access the website. However, the website cannot be accessed from the MainBTS network unless the hosts file on the local computer is configured. The issue is this website must be accessible from outside the BTS network without configuring the hosts file due to limited admin rights and security concerns.

Can someone help me figure out how to access this website from the MainBTS network without editing the hosts file?
