Many thanks for your reply. I'm on a month to month plan at the moment.
I have CCTV cameras and require a Static IP to be able to access these remotely and it was fine pre-NBN (i.e. ADSL, etc). Now on NBN it flicks about IP's whenever it feels like it which means I don't see the cameras more than I do (unless I keep changing the settings on the NVR). 😞
I've read bits and pieces about DYNDNS - would this solve my issue? Any recommendations on providers, etc?
Will PM some info.
What model cameras do you have? They probably have a DYNDNS service built in. Basically internet capable equipment (modems, cameras, etc.) have a DYDNS settings page. They monitor the IP address they have been assigned
You first get a DYNDNS account ($20 a year or something) and this assigns you a domain name (e.g. roniehome.dydns.org) DYNDNS matches that name to an IP address on the internet (same as www.optus.com.au => 126.96.36.199) Your cameras are all connected to a single modem on the property? The modem will probably have a DYNDNS settings page where you put in your domain name. Whenever the modem changes its IP address (is reset) then the modem sends the newly assigned address over to DYNDNS.
This way you never have to worry about the actual IP address - just type in roniehome.dydns.org
Note you use port forwarding (again on the modem) to be able to access different cameras on the same IP address. See here
Its not 100% as definite as a static IP but for most home/business security its 99% reliable.
