Local Wireless router made to look like WAN Ip address
Posted on 2014-03-25
I have the following scenero:
2 building (A& B) - one network serving both
- Building A (Office) - Has a centurylink Actiontec C1000A DSL Modem/Router (WAN Static Ip). DHCP enabled.
- Building B (Shop) - Has ASUS RT-AC56U Router in wireless Access Point (AP) mode.
The client uses an Iphone app to connect via the internet to the modem in Building A that port forwards to a specific workstation in the shop for time tracking. Works great for Off-site jobs.
When working in the shop the iphone is still used to track time, but the iphone app only allows for one connection profile (currently setup for off site: WAN static Ip, Port address and local path). This only works when off-site (and using the iphone data plan or coffee shop wifi)
I need the (off-site) profile settings to work locally also. Is there a way to make the ASUS wireless access point act or look like the WAN "static IP" address so the app will work properly?
I hope I was clear in my explaination. Please let me know if I was not.
