Skinny doesn't block anything apart from the usual ports.

 

 

 

it's possible you will have issues if miss-configured due to being cgnat, but normally it works well behind nat.

You can request a static IP so no CGNAT

Edit: Static IP might only be available on connections direct from Spark

Yep no static IP on skinny. I have friends who were using 2Talk with Skinny's HG659 on a Skinny DSL connection that used to be CGNat, and had no issues, I wouldn't think the 4G should be any different.

It's when it's miss-configured that it's an issue, correctly setup for behind nat will work well. Many here do it...
