Additional ip addresses required

Can someone from support please tell me how much it will cost to have an addition external ip address assigned to my connection. I have Business 2000 no-nat.

Thx.

RE: Additional ip addresses required

They should be free..

As far as i can remember all you have to do is request it via the contact us system ...

Support do not post in here all the time so it best to put a message direct to support for this...

RE: Additional ip addresses required

I did request them but have the horrible feeling that the multiple addresses are given as follows:-
My static address 195.166.166.168, 255.255.255.252
Router Address 195.166.155.169
Firewall address 195.166.155.170

Which gives me three addresses.
Hmmm if this is the +net idea of multiple IP addresses I have been well screwed!

..
The 255.255.255.252 subnet mask gives you 1 extra usable address..
In your case
195.166.166.168 - network address (not usable)
195.166.155.169 - normally router
195.166.155.170 - your other host
195.166.155.171 - broadcast address (not usable)

Get this little prog, I find it quite helpful..

I thought I would need addresses, but find that using NAT and PAT (port address translation) there is no need (and I feel a bit safer). With PAT on the router you would tell the world that eg your SMTP server is 195.166.155.169 (router), on the router you say that incoming SMTP traffic on port 25 gets routed to eg 10.0.0.10 port 25.
To be honest I found that simpler than trying to figure how to assign 1 ip address to 2 interfaces (pppoa(adsl) and internal ethernet) on my SpeedTouch!

All the best.
