I'm assisting someone that has moved their mailserver home from the office and pays for their static IP address aswell as their home broadband plan (under the family name) on seperate accounts.

They have been using the old cisco dsl router at home but due to problems with the connection constantly dropping, I've installed another adsl router which is currently set to receive a dynamic ip and has been configured with familyname.xadsl@isp.co.nz

I have no access to the old cisco (I may do if I can be bothered soldering up a communication cable), so I have no idea how it has been configured at this stage.

I'd like to know whether or not the static ip address is attached exclusively to the other account credentials eg. businessname.xadsl@isp.co.nz (which is what the cisco has no doubt been using) or whether its specific to the line itself and the static ip will be granted regardless.

Unfortunately I'm offsite and can't reboot the router to check whether or not the ip remains static. I'm guessing it doesn't and I'm going to have to use the business login credentials?
I'm also guessing that if so, I'll need to aquire the static IP address from the isp so that I can manually enter it into the router's config??

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

If it is with telecom the static IP address is assigned to the account.

The static IP is assigned to the username & password so all you have to do is put in the office login details to the replacement ADSL router and it will get the static IP that was being used at the office.
You will also most likely need to open port 25 and point it to the mailserver's IP address on the LAN.

Would really like this Cisco up and running tbh. They don't make it half hard though!

ADSL in NZ always has a username and password, so the static IP is allocated to the PPP login. You might be able to get a Static IP on the home connection as well, so you can configure the DNS use it as a backup MX address for the mail server.




Time to find a new industry!
