Cisco - No Dial-up Static, Is Dynamic DNS a Solution?
Posted on 2003-12-03
I’m faced with a problem that I cannot find an ISP that will provide me with STATIC Dial-Up service. The reason why it has to be STATIC is because I’d like to use this connection as a Backup incase the primary ADSL broadband connection drops. This will be a VPN environment using a Cisco 1700 series router.
- Does anyone know of a CANADA wide (or that offers Access Numbers accross Canada) Dial Up provider that offers Static IP address?
- Or is there a way I can use a Dynamic DNS provider to assign a hostname to that Dynamic IP address, and configuring it within the Cisco configuration script?(No third party software)
I know there are several Dynamic DNS services out there but most require a piece of software that will determine the IP address and forward it to the Dynamic DNS provider to update the table. Has anyone been able to support Cisco routers, I understand that the basic routers (DLink, Linksys) have support for these types of solutions.
Does anyone have any ideas?
