|Hi there, |
I have the following problem and would appreciate any suggestions on the best way to solve it.
There are two LANs, both in the same building. The first is company-wide. My office has one PC that accesses a server on that LAN to get some realtime information from another part of the building. The PC has a static IP on that network. Contacting that one other server on the LAN is the only thing I need to on this LAN.
The second LAN is the one within our office itself. It's a very simple setup with an Apple Airport router and a couple computers attached. It also gives these computers access to the internet.
What I would like to do is maintain the PC's access to the first LAN, but also give it access to our office LAN and the internet. In other words, I want to connect the PC to both networks at once.
What's the best way? Is it possible without buying a second NIC for the PC? Is there a way to connect the router in the office to both networks at once, and connect the PC to that? It is fine if the other computers on my office LAN also have access to the company LAN, but they must keep their internet access.
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!
