BarTender: But it is a double NAT.
NAT 1 is LAN to Spark Mobile WAN. You get assigned a CGNAT 100.64.0.0/12 IP address. Which you have control over to port forward.
NAT 2 is Spark CGNAT to internet. You have no control over it and no ability to pinhole a port.

So unless you can pinhole on #2 there is no point talking about #1. Trust me I know a lot about this.

 

 

 

I guess I will find out, it isnt much good if it cant be done

 

 

You'll find out Mr Tender is correct. As also pointed out the B315 and HG630 are different and for different services.

So hold on a sec, you need to be able to port forward. Yet went ahead and selected an internet service seemingly without doing ANY researching whether your requirement can be met?

 

hmmmmmmm.....

 

Na Spark have definitely screwed up here. What a terrible service they offer. They should definitely offer fixed 4G access with public addressing to the 10s of thousands of customers they want to run on the service.

 

/trolling

 

What Bartender said using a VPS on a public IP is a good suggestion. Run up a linux VPS, create a VPN tunnel with a client on your LAN, use iptables for routing on the VPS to set up the required port forwards back down to your LAN.

Been there, done that :-( Although it doesn't sound ideal there will be a way to accomplish what they need... I just think that it will involve a bit more expert setup time and possibly a machine somewhere to run the openVPN concentrator. Of course depending on where they need to connect to there may already be a machine suitable. I have OpenVPN setup on an Odroid C2 ($100ish)... A Raspberry Pi could do the same thing very easily and would be perfectly suitable if they weren't hammering the links with tens of Mbit and didn't have a heap of endpoints.

Was Vodafone not an option? Because there are plenty of ways to get a public IP to do exactly what you want, but potentially not as cheap as the Spark offering. It's all about weighting up requirements with price.

Vodafone if suitable may well end up in the equation yet

Of course Spark will do what you want as well, it's just a matter of using the product that's right for your requirements.

In this case it is a customer who didnt ask the right questions just went ahead with things on the basis that all internet connections work the same.
