I do see that there are many answers to this question however my question I believe is slightly different as it is directed more at potential change to my router. I'm seeking to know if the below is possible.
Do routers have the ability to connect devices having IP Addresses of both the typical
10.0.0.x. Do routers support this capability or do they ONLY have the ability to connect to a single subnet?
My story which is similar to almost everybody else in that I installed a new router and wish to update my server IP with minimal effort. My server room is currently inaccessible. I wish for my existing devices to remain connected to my router and not lose their connection to the Internet while also being able to remote into my server (Putty as an example) having the old IP Address of 10.0.0.x. My laptop of course has the new IP Address of 192.168.1.x.
How can I connect to my server from my laptop via my new router? Again, can a change be made to my router to allow for this temporary connection without affecting my currently connected devices?
- Laptop (192.168.1.x)
- Router (192.168.1.x)
- Server (10.0.0.x)
Laptop ---> Server
I made and Attempt to set a Static route to my server however this did not work as static routes still need to 'Route' the devices that connect to that route. My connection is a straight shot from my router to my server.
So again, I could not find a solution that would allow me to update my router in order to get this to work. Had to utilize another solution which is below:
