Just trying to do some diagnostic stuff remotely with some hardware located at a site with 4G Broadband from Spark. I've gone into the virtual servers section and attempted to forward WAN port 8080 to a local piece of hardware's port 80 - However I cannot connect from the outside. I know the internal hardware's IP is valid as well as the port -- so can only guess that Spark block this port? APN is Broadband

Is there a way around this? An area of ports not blocked? One piece of hardware does work using upnp

You may need a private / corporate APN solution no carriers allow this on the default public APN

Thats unforunate, especially now they come with plans like 60GB of data. I could understand if it was a very low allowance plan with exorborant extra use charges. Looks like I need to find a way to make this one work like the other does.

Switch providers?




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

There are RBI providers that do full public dynamic and static IP's.

Maybe OP has better Spark rather than VF Coverage? I'm not aware of any RBI resellers who do Spark reselling.

 

 

 

Currently Spark don't do public IP's on the 4G service unfortunately.

This has come up a lot lately. None of the "mainstream" offerings are doing public addresses and it is all CG-NAT.

So your only decent option is to have a VPN client on the end with 4G and have that connect back to a server that is publically addressed (or you at least have control of). From their you can route appropriately for remote access to whatever you need.

Not up to me to choose providers as its a client's connection - but yes incidentally Spark seem to have the best coverage. I don't think RBI is an option as such as although it is a rural area it is not an RBI specific area (copper available, even VDSL for some neighbours I've had things to do with, but just old copper along the roads so too many hassles for a business to sustain)

 

 

 

Managed to find a way thru anyway to do what I want. CGNAT would have been another hurdle anyway.

What was your solution in the end?
