Hi all,

I am looking at getting a routable subnet for my servers and XNet have advised me that they do not provide subnets. I read somewhere that this is possible through PPTP?

Is there any provider that supplies a routable subnet over PPTP?

Cheers

What is it your trying to achieve? A routable subnet... would, if I think it is your thinking, would cost someserious $$ even for /28

It was never resolved. In fact it was mentioned that the ISP can provide a routeable subnet hence why I emailed xnet. They do not provide subnets so I was wondering if it can be done over PPTP without the ISP getting involved. I have found many ISP's overseas that offer a subnet for FREE so I cant see why it cant be done

is there a reason you need three IPs?  Are you hosting 3 applications that use the same port (and which are not http web servers)?

Yes. I have two servers which handle DNS, Web, Email. If you think I'm crazy for doing it on ADSL well I may be. But my upload is fine at the moment and an extra IP or two is just what I want

The only way to do this in NZ is to lease a /29 from your isp. Snap does this for $20 pm




Hmmmm

As said before XNet wont offer a /29. Does that mean its impossible?

with them? Apparently.

Pay out some $$ and get another line in with Snap, then hook up your IPs, transfer across and then pull xnet.

Howdy,

The helpdesk won't know what you're talking about so calling the 0800 number won't work. Send me a PM and I'll give you the contact details for NOC.

Cheers.

If Xnet won't do it, and you really want it, you will have to look in other places.

Hi Chris,

I was resonding to Cisconz's "The only way to do this in NZ is to lease a /29 from your isp. Snap does this for $20 pm".

When I read "Is there any provider that supplies a routable subnet over PPTP?" I thought you would be looking at other providers.

Cheers

Any ISP who is delivering xDSL over their own infrastructure (e.g. LLU) or via Telecom's UBS/UBA products can technically offer subnets.  However it may be a commercial (or other technical) decision not to.

In the old days of xDSL services via Telecom's wholesale platforms such as FastIP (for Jetstart) the only viable option for subnets was via, e.g. a PPTP tunnel.

You definitely should not need to use a tunnel these days - just find an ISP who will offer it to you if Xnet won't.
