Fixed IP on machine that cannot be change conflict with company network
A machine in our company is currently sending its data to a PC that is directy connected to it with a cable network
This machine has a hard coded fixed IP (192.168.0.2) and cannot be changed.
The problem is that the PC must share those data on the company network that by chance, or not, uses the same IP range and this specific IP is already ued by our DC, that is also app server and more. Therefore changing the DC ip address has too many impacts and cannot be done.
Currently the PC has 2 network cards, one connected to the machine and one connected to the company network. A little script is activating/ shutting down one network card or the other demending on the need but this is unstable and the PC has to be restarted regularly. This is a workaround anyway since the goal is to have access to the machine and the company network at the same time of course.
Does any of you have a (simple) solution to this? a router in between (if yes how to configure it? Or is there a device on the market that simulates another IP?
Many thanks for your help already! 🙂
