I am missing how to configure the Peplink Balance One so that it can be configured to be accessible through a static public IP address used by the WAN interface.
The issue is that the modem/router which is connected to the Balance One, will only allow two types of connections:
Using DHCP - This will assign a private IP address to the Balance One WAN interface and won’t be usable to access the router through the Internet
Using PPPOE - The Balance One will “dialup” the modem, which will assign a temporary public IP address to the Balance One WAN interface. However, this IP address might change at anytime. While this issue might be addressed using DDNS service in the Peplink Balance One WAN config, it doesn’t help much when an IP address is required, and FQDN cannot be used.
How can you overcome this issue? The modem allows configuring a DMZ host on the LAN side…would this help?
