Does Gen5 allow a public IP Adress and port forwarding?

Does the new Gen5 modem/router allow for a public IP address (static or dynamic) and port forwarding?

Re: Does Gen5 allow a public IP Adress and port forwarding?

The modem/router does have port mapping/triggering available, but I don't think we have a public facing IPv4 address... IPv4 addresses have dried up, haven't been available for a long time now.  We do however have public facing IPv6 addresses.

I am aware of the lack of IPv4 addresses. I will look into IPv6 addresses to see if I can use them. I need a public IP address to reach control control elements internal to my LAN.

I'm assuming Gen5 uses an H2000 modem/router? Does this router have an IPv6 to IPv4 transition method - which would allow a IPv4 LAN to communicate from the internet using IPv6? Can the Gen5 modem/router have a fixed IPv6 address? Can an external IPv4 device use a specialized IPv6 address containing the LAN IPv4 address or port to access internal to the LAN?

Does Gen5 allow static IPv addresses?

Re: Does Gen5 allow a public IP Adress and port forwarding?

I was able to get the port forwarding working on my HT2000 which I just had installed a couple days ago.  But, I have to use the "WAN IP" listed in the router main page.  I cannot use the IP address that others see as my external IP.  I guess Dynamic DNS doesn't work with IPv6, at least with google domains it doesn't Smiley Sad

Hi mtdirect,

 

Thanks for posting, these are great questions. Regarding your static IP concern, we currently have no plans for static IPs on Gen 5.

 

Thanks,
