Local Wireless router made to look like WAN Ip address

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.

Thank you

You're looking for hairpin NAT.
If the Asus router works as an Access Point (essentially a switch), then the function you want has to be supported by the router (the DSL modem/router).
