Find my peplink is super helpful, but I have a situation where I’d like to have the option to use the “Incontrol detected IP” vs. the WAN’s actual interface IP. Verizon’s LTE network overloads private IP’s to publicly routable IPs, so the WAN IP on the device is not the same as what the outside world sees.
I’m not trying to use this to get back into my router from this IP, rather I am trying to update a firewall whitelist on a PBX in a Flash (Asterisk) server with the public IP, so that I can allow traffic in from phones behind the Verizon connection. PIAF has a script that will automatically check a defined FQDN to keep an updated whitelist
once we set up the FQDN for a remote user, localdynamic DNS update clients can be used to automate the process of keeping IP addresses current. Then, every few minutes, we’ll let your server check whether there’s been a change in any users’ dynamic IP addresses. If so, we’ll simply refresh the IP addresses of all FQDNs using an IPtables restart to bring the phones back to life.
I’d love if there was a checkbox, or some other way to choose between the interface or the detected IP when enabling Find My Peplink on InControl. This would allow me to create a super simple backup connection over Verizon whenever our wired WAN goes down (and not have to scramble to whitelist IP’s, or do a bunch of tunneling).
Does this sound like something that is doable?
