IP address translation

At work, we receive new equipment with controllers that have incompatable IP addresses. (Incompatable with our LAN) I have a handfull of IP addresses that I can use.but since the equipment has dozens of addresses, changing them is not an option. I only need to communicate with the main controller. Here is my question: Can I configure a port on the router as 10.10.34.66 (compatable with my LAN) and have data sent to that port forwarded it to a different port configured as 22.14.55.122 (the controllers address) and vice versa? All this is to take place on the LAN with no access to the outside world. Addresses are examples only.

Re: IP address translation

Hi chasdk54,

 

Welcome to the community! Smiley Happy 

 

What router are you referring to and is this router the main router of your existing network?  If ever you are referring to a ProSAFE VPN Firewall Router indicated on the data sheet here, you could possibly create a VLAN (for example: a VLAN for 10.10.34.x network) then assign a LAN port to that VLAN.  Then, you could configure inbound firewall rules (or port forwarding) to a WAN address.
