We have 3 routable IPs from COX for our business line coming through an1811 router. Call them 2.2.2.a ,2.2.2.b, and 2.2.2.c
The router has 2.2.2.a assigned to its FE0 interface and is connected to the cable modem. There are two internal servers which are supposed to be accessible via2.2.2.b and 2.2.2.c from the internet. Right now, we have static NAT set up for those two systems and are using 10.0.0.a and 10.0.2.b for their internal side. That works well, for the most part. The problem is when we have other systems on the internal network trying to access these servers via their public addresses.
Would it work better (or at all) if I simply set up static routes for2.2.2.b and 2.2.2.c and forward them out the vlan0 interface (10.0.0.c)? If so, what changes would have to be made on the servers other than setting a NIC's IP to the appropriate external address for each server? Would the gateway for the servers remain 10.0.0.c or would I have to do something else?
