connecting pc directly to T1
Posted on 2013-11-27
we are trying to test if our router is blocking access to a specific site from one of our pcs that needs access to that site and it seems to not have access so to confirm this as a test we were advised to connect the pc directly to the T1 router which would bypass our firewall and would confirm whether or not our firewall is in fact the one blocking it. However, the way that the software works that needs the access is it needs to access the pc from another client so in other words, if we connect the pc directly to the T1 then it would no longer have the same internal ip address as the client pc that accesses the pc so wanted to know how to have a setup which would enable the 2 pcs to have the same ip address so one can see the other while connected directly to the internet and bypassing our firewall. Thanks.
