Is it possible that one computer talks to several devices with the same IP address. I would like to realize this with the following setup:
- one GNU/Linux box with several virtual interfaces, each is assigned a different IP address and VLAN
- switch where every port is in different VLAN, except port that is connected to the computer (if I remember correctly that is called a trunk port?)
- somehow configure my application (e.g. ping) to use the interface I want
Is my way of thinking in the right direction? Did I miss something or write totally incorrect/impossible stuff?
I cannot change the IP addresses of the devices that my computer connects to (they come from the store with this IP address and I have to configure them)
