Can I use an alias to access my modem admin interface on different IP range?
I have an ADSL2+ modem which provides an admin interface on 192.168.1.1. Unfortunately my LAN is 192.168.0.0 so I have no way of accessing the admin pages to manage the modem.
I read that it's possible to use aliases to assign multiple IP addresses to a single NIC and I was wondering whether this would help me access 192.168.1.1 from one of my PCs on 192.168.0.0.
My setup is as follows:
Internal LAN is 192.168.0.0. PCs are on this LAN.
Internet gateway/firewall/general linux server has two NICs:
eth0 - 192.168.0.254
eth1 - no IP address as it's in bridge mode
ADSL2+ modem is connected to internet on ppp0 which has a dynamically allocated IP address from my ISP. And is also connected to eth1 by ethernet cable.
What I would like to do is have a setup where I can access the modem's administration pages on 192.168.1.1 from a PC on the 192.168.0.0 LAN. How can I do this?
