Networking issue in switched network

By h ·
Oh people of expert i have proplem related to networking i wanna setup a computer as a web server and giving that server a real ip address
The details here as follows the location of that computer is a lab full of computers attached to local lan each lab is attached to a smart switch ( not cisco ) each switch of each lab is attached to a switch attached directly to a gateway to wide area network ( internet )
here's my problem
I wanna give the computer a real IP address in same lab without moving the computer please note the lab is local area network
what feature or technique allow me to do such a thing because i'm struggling with people of networking they said it's not possible an i must move my computer
does switching introduce a feature to implement such thing
Please note : internet connection is leased line
i already have the real static ip addresses
Thanks in advance

Usually stuff like this is done on the firewall level. Your Firewall admin should be able to map your Internet Static IP to the internal NATed IP address. However there are a number of complications with this scenario. Such as security policies, firewall rules. Whether your organization requires publically accessible web servers to be on a DMZ etc. Bottom line is that you pretty much have to comply withwhat your Network administrators decree. They may have some very very good reason for not wanting the Web server set up the way you do.
