I'm currently with 2degrees but looking at Spark as they have the cheap sky sports deal plus lightbox.  My 2degrees connection has a static IPv4 and IPv6 (/56). I currently host a few things on my homelab that require external access and I utilise both my IPv4 and IPv6 static address to achieve this, I'm aware that Spark has not yet got IPv6 running for residential users, so I'd need more than 1 static IPv4... Question is, how many IPv4 addresses can a residential customer have?  I'd ideally need 3 until IPv6 comes online for example.

we only do a single IP on residential plans.




Could you use another port?


reverse proxy on ingest?

Why exactly do you need more than one v4 IP at home?

kyhwana2: Why exactly do you need more than one v4 IP at home?


I've never found reverse proxying servers on a single IPv4 to be that successful hence why when I had access to IPv6 I took that and use IPv4 to 6 via cloudflare. I 'host' my family emails, an owncloud instance, windows server essentials remote access on this connection.  I've had other access needs too in the past but currently this is what I am running.  The IPv6 allows me to run owncloud & email servers while the single IPv4 is used by my essentials server as that cannot go on IPv6 as far as I've found.

I'm interested in the spark deals for Sky at the moment as a way to reduce the need for the main sky package, the IPv6 address supplied by 2degree's is perfectly fine otherwise.
