Does Gen5 allow a public IP Adress and port forwarding?

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

If your networked devices fully support IPv6 and the device you are attempting to connect to gets a proper IPv6 address, then you would connect to that IPv6 address and not the WAN IPv6 address...

The thing about IPv6, if you get a proper address, you don't need to forward any ports, however, that leaves your devices open to the internet for all.  Another issue is, IPv6 addressing with Hughesnet can change at any time, and will almost certainly change when the modem has to reassociate due to storms or a reboot.

what if i place a PC connected directly to the modem with  a dynDNS service that will maintain  URL name?

If dynDNS will automatically update the IPv6 record, it *should* work just fine that way.  But, it will depend on what they detect as your IPv6 address.
