    Can you punch a hole in a router ?

    Hi guys, sorry for the bad title, however just a question here that i cant figure out ...

    I'm wondering if you can have a router set up with DHCP, and have several computers running off of it and have one, perhaps two Static IP's on the same router ??? or do you need 2 routers to acomplish this ???

    Im trying to run a client FTP site on a static ip, that can bypass the router and not interfer with the other computers on the network.

    router - DL-707P

    Any help would be great, thanks

    My router has 3 computers connected to it. I could make them all static or dynamic, or a mix. My router lets me setup what it calls "Virtual Server" that:
    You can configure the Barricade g as a virtual server so that remote users accessing services such as the Web or FTP at your local site via public IP addresses can be automatically redirected to local servers configured with private IP addresses. In other words, depending on the requested service (TCP/UDP port number), the Barricade g redirects the external service request to the appropriate server (located at another internal IP address). This tool can support both port ranges, multiple ports, and combinations of the two.

    For example:
    Port Ranges: ex. 100-150
    Multiple Ports: ex. 25,110,80
    Combination: ex. 25-100,80

    My router is a DI-804V. Under "Advanced Settings" -> "DHCP Server" I can specify the start/end addresses of the DHCP pool and manually "resrve" certain addresses against certain computer names.

    My DB server and web server run with fixed addresses on my network using such reservations, other machines just pick up a pool address.
    Wave upon wave of demented avengers march cheerfully out of obscurity unto the dream.
