I have made a rough drawing of my network layout:
The gateway, the two servers and the wifi router have a global IP address with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.240.
The PCs have local IP addresses in the 10.0.1.x range and a subnet of 255.255.255.0
What I need to do:
Make the two servers accessible from the PC's local network and vice versa. The servers are running Ubuntu and the PCs are Windows, Ubuntu and Macs. Can this be accomplished by adding a
route in the Ubuntu servers, or assigning them two IP addresses? I don't really know how to go about it.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
Edit: More Info:
- I don't have access to the gateway. It's provided by the ISP
- The servers (and the gateway) have global IP addresses. That's why I can't combine them into a single network.
- The router is an Apple Airport. I'm not sure of the model. But I don't think it can do much.
I understand that there is no definite solution to this with my current hardware and network topology. As some of you have pointed out, I can easily access the Servers from the PCs with LAN-speeds. I can live with that for now.
