Multiple IPs?

I have 2 computers here that I will wish to use with plusnet. I currently route them with forwarding but will be wanting to use the same ports for the different computers so cannot do that.

I know how to set up my system to allow multiple IPs but will plusnet let me have them?

Multiple IPs?

Unless the machines are running as servers this should not be required.

Can you give a better description of what you are doing.

I would also like to know the answer to this question:

"does plus net allow multiple IP's?"

I am currently forwarding different ports to the corresponding computers which does work on a certain level...

example

computer 1 http port 80
computer 2 http port 8080

and so on...

Yes, PlusNet do.

For residential customers, they supply 4 or 8 IP addresses.

4 Ip's allows for 1 or 2 usable, depending on your router.
1 broadcast
1 network
1 router
1 computer

8 IP's will allow 5 usable, again, depending on the router.

I want to be able to have web servers on 2 different computers.
So port 80 on both would be accessible which would need multiple IPs?

You could do that with a 4 IP block if your router can run in nat and no-nat mode (most don't). You would assign one PC the computer IP explained above and the 2nd PC would get a local IP (192.168.0.X) and you would use the router IP to access it which you then port forward port 80 to your local IP.

If nat/no-nat is not possible you need an 8 IP block to do what you want and just run your router in no-nat mode. This does mean any firewall on your router will not be used and you will need to secure each PC with its own firewall.

Does anyone know of a "router that can run in nat and no-nat mode" as mentioned in the previous post?

zyxel...i have a 640 series one and it can do it no probs...
the latest 659's should comfortably handle the nat/no nat traffic.
look em up and get their manuals and check.... Cool

Do you know any wireless (budget) products which will do this also, but no-nat on 2 devices, and NAT on the rest?
