alternative to opting out of CG-NAT?

Post by tbone22 » Fri Nov 22, 2019 10:59 pm

Hello,

I'm looking for solutions to reach my home network from the outside (for security cameras). CG-NAT is an obstacle for this.
However, having a static IPv6 address (-range) could help, but not every network supports it yet. For instance, I do not have access to the IPv6 internet at work, nor do I have this via my Exetel SIM card on my phone.
Is opting out of CG-NAT the only option?

IPv4 addresses are rare these days, and I'd hope there is a way without opting out of CG-NAT. Is there a reliable 4to6 tunnel? Perhaps even provided by Exetel? Can I opt in to IPv6 on my Exetel mobile plan?

Thank you very much in advance.

Thank you for providing the service number via PM. Please note that you can opt-out from CG-NAT IP address on your fibre service via the members facility. Please log into the members facility > click on the tab services and usage > select manage on the fibre service > select IP manage tab > and select CG-NAT opt out submit the request after selecting the reason.

further to that Mobile services or Mobile broadband services will have a dynamic IP and no static IP allocation for them by the wholesale supplier.
