Re: Business data only sim static IP

It seems we all understand all the issues. It just takes Optus to decide to do something about it.

Now that Telstra has publicly announced an end date for their 3G network, perhaps Optus will follow suit. That may encourage Optus to include in that plan addressing this deficiency (since otherwise customers affected by this will be stuffed).

For me at the moment, this problem is on the backburner. Bigger fish to fry.

Re: Business data only sim static IP

Optus DOES support a static public ip on its Business mobile broadband plans.

You have to contact an Optus Business Centre to get it, their was an issue where they had run out of public ip addresses, but this should have been fixed by now (was an issue a few weeks ago when I enquired)

Its a $5 a month addon for the static public ip ontop of the normal plan charge.

Re: Business data only sim static IP

The problem is the lack of support for this on the 4G network. (The secondary problem is the 4G dongles themselves.)

If that has changed, please advise.

I am a business. I have a working 3G dongle with public static IP. I want to migrate to 4G.

Re: Business data only sim static IP

I had a static ip setup on a huawei e5186 router.

You have to contact an Optus Business Centre, this is the only way to have this done.

Re: Business data only sim static IP

Hi,

I am not 100% sure about Optus' take on it. However, if you go to https://www.zetta.net.au/services/internet/mobile-broadband/

they advertise to use Optus 4G Network for their Service with a Static Public WAN IP Address.

Getting a 4G device that will not NAT is another issue. I have access to e3372 in a Stick mode. They work fine with ZettaNet (Optus) SIMs. Let me know if you need assistance.

Re: "I had a static ip setup on a huawei e5186 router."

Which would suggest the question: What APN was it using?
