I’m sorry if this has been asked and answered when asked in another fashion but is it possible to someone get a static public IP address, regardless as to the WAN connection? I have a MAX BR1 that connects via either Verizon or AT&T’s cellular network, a satellite modem, or any WiFi hotspot I can connect. I need to create a sub-network that will have extremely tight security (for law enforcement purposes) whereas the primary network will have rather lax security, similar to many home networks. This will be in a mobile vehicle. The secured network router will reside under the primary LAN created by the MAX BR1, but in order to set up a secured VPN, we must have a static IP address to reach the primary secured network, the VPN software does not allow for a “roadwarrior” setup. I am assuming that provided I get a single, static IP address, regardless of source to the BR1, I can do port-forwarding to pass appropriate ports to the secured router.
The vehicle is a mobile communications truck for a volunteer sheriff’s search and rescue organization. Those of us volunteers need to have flexibility in acquiring our network source and adding software to all of our machines. In order for law enforcement to use our network, it must be locked down tighter than a drum, preventing the volunteers from making changes to what WiFi hotspot we connect to or choosing to disable one cellular network if it is giving us problems in a particular location. Having our primary network locked down would also prevent us from making ANY change to our computers for adding or trying software because it will ALWAYS require that a paid and approved county IT professional make any changes. This does NOT work when we may be called out at any time or day and may be in the middle of a forest somewhere. I am needing to find a way to allow us to both co-exist. I understand their need for extremely tight security, but we volunteers need to be in a relative sandbox.
