Redirect IP request to a Different IP
Posted on 2014-07-14
I recently changed the private IP addresses of my network. I changed from a 192.X.X.X network to a 10.X.X.X.
A program written by an old consultant of ours was hardcoded to reference a server at 192.168.2.18. This server still exists, but is at a new IP address now. The authoring consultants is no longer available and the program won't run.
Is it possible to fool my system into sending all requests for the 192 address to the new IP address?
I've tried changing the hosts file, but this only works with host names. Not redirecting IP addresses.
Of course, this programmer should have written the program to reference a hostname, but if I can redirect a request for one IP address to a different IP address, this will get us through the night.
All help is appreciated.
