Hi Team

 

We have a client moving offices, and circumstances mean we may need to set them up with a 4G connection for 1-2 months.  This is the NZ office of an Australian company, and they are highly reliant on a site to site IPSec VPN connection.  The Aussies tell us that they can ask for a GPTEXB3 IP Address via Telstra and this gets them a cellular connection with static public IP which can be attached to a Cisco router that establishes the VPN connection.

 

Is there an equivalent available from Vodafone NZ?  Googling for that code does not produce any NZ results, nor does 4G Static IP or similar.

 

Cheers
Mike

I'm not sure if Vodafone actually offer static IP addresses on any of their connections. I believe the only way to get one is via a private APN offering, of which there are plenty of providers who can offer these.

Single 4G connection not worth it you need a corporate APN built and this takes time and money to setup (lots of $$)

 

Zero chance of static IP on public APN

Thank you both.  I had heard in the past a Private APN from Voda was a corporate option (read: too expensive for a month or two).

 

I'm hoping it won't be required, but if it is, I'll ask smaller providers about a Private APN option and see if they will do one temporarily.
