we got 2 external IPs from our ISP and I'm trying to put them to use. I had to connect the entire network We also have 2 server that host a lot of diffrent stuff (some of it on the same ports) and I'd like to be able to use the two IPs from our ISP on the same subnet for stuff like forwarding port 80 from each IP to a diffrent machine.
Here's what I tried:
- Two routers, one with DHCP (Router 1) and one in switch mode (Router 2)(connected via LAN ports)
- Each router is connected to the internet via it's WAN port
- All computers are in the same subnet hosted by Router1.
But here's my problem:
Port forwarding on Router 1 works perfectly. But on Router 2, it doesn't work at all. The remote admin panel from Router 2 works on it's IP but no port forwards do.
Is there a way to make 2 routers have separate external IPs while still being on the same subnet?
