Some will do it with a secondary PPPoE dialer as well - in that instance you can use 2 Routers and put a switch between the ONT and the 2 routers (Or use a router that can handle dual PPPoE sessions.

Speaking along the lines of dual PPPoE (using only 1 additional IP), which by the way would be ideal if it only comes at a small price for the second connection...

How common is it to get a /32 over a /32? I figured /30 was the norm little own a /31.

I could use private address space as a last hop between routers. Not tidy practice though right? It would mean only one additional IP though also.

In saying that I remember seeing something similar when good old Xtra had private IP space's coming back from a trace route to a public host back in the day on jetstart I believe?

1. Get a decent small router - Mikrotik and Cisco are good choices


2. Ask your ISP for a /29 - expect to pay around $16 per month for this which is the going rate. If you get it any cheaper or free consider that a bonus. This will give you 5 usable host IP addresses.




1. You will need to know a bit about networking, etc, because customer services probably won't support this non-standard config and the NOC won't want to hand IP's to someone if they ask n00b questions. In context - I don't know you so if know your stuff, disregard, it's not personal.


2. You are now even-more responsible for security etc because you don't have NAT to protect you. Know the implications of this.


I hope this helps.

Sorry just noticed a post I didn't successfully post. My phone screen overlapped the post button with something else so didn't make it.

Yep, I have Mikrotiks. The main router and firewall is an RB2011. This also has my current VPN on it. I've set the firewall up on this the best I can a while back including limiting connection attempts even on the open ports. All other services including the router's are blocked.

I'll be moving my VPN to a 951ui under it and using a second 951ui for the second VPN and streaming side of things.

I'll also go one further and restrict bandwidth because it won't need what fibre is capable of incase someone wants to have a go at it.

I should be able to get away with a /31 at most though. I'll create a couple of virtual interfaces with the public IP's and 1:1 NAT the open ports to the routers below them.

For additonal paranoia I'll duplicate a lot of the firewall filters I use now on the 951ui's even though they will be terminated and NAT'd on the 2011.

I've been in touch with Voyager and looking forward to the move.

I do check up on the logs in the Mikrotik's too.

Same with my web server. If I see something I don't like I blacklist those IP's in the Mikrotik's route table.
