i switched to big pipe last week and mostly im happy so far.

 

the one major problem i have that may cause me to move on is that now i canot access any of my internal network services from outside (qbittorrent webui, minecraft server and teamspeak server). I was doing this through a combination of NAT and using no-ip and all worked wonderfully on my previous ISP (slingshot) but there upload was less than a meg on my VDSL connection so i switched to bigpipe and without changing anything on my end none of it works.

 

Any ideas?

 

 

 

Thanks For the Assistance

The 'Search' function on here is a wonderful thing....

 

CG-NAT is to blame. You can pay a one-off fee (i think, last time I read a post like this) to get a public IP put on your connection and then all your normal port forwards will work nicely.

You can get a static, public IP from BigPipe for a one off fee ($45 I think).

sorry for the lack of searching its conditioned out of me by most forums search button being utterly useless.

 

Bit of a bummer i have to pay for a static ip when i dont need one due to the way there internal network is setup but ill probably go ahead with that anyways.

 

Thanks for the replys

 

 

 

Both of you where faster than bigpipes customer servicewhich is a good geekzone tradition.

not at all, you could have found that information prior to joining bigpipe + a one off fee is a lot better than what some ISP's want for them.

 

there are very little in the way of IP address ranges avaliable for ISP's to use for their customers (there are more devices requiring IP addresses than there are IP addresses in the IPv4 space) one way to get more users on to fewer IP addresses is to use CG-NAT. there are a few ISP's using this now.

You have the option for a routable IP address with Bigpipe, which is better than other ISPs that are nat only.
