I have just recently installed a new DSL internet connection with static IP(Globally accessible). I have got an AZtech ADSL2/2+ DSL605EU router. Now my main purpose of this connection and static IP was to implement a Base Station where different hardware units will connect using TCP/UDP protocol. I have an application running on the base station that is continuously monitoring some ports for incoming connections from my hardware units.
The ISP are saying that the Static IP will be of the router and the PC will have a local IP i.e 192.168.1.2 .
What I need is that all the requests coming to my IP should be forwarded to the PC. I have thought of two options
1) Rather then PPoE connection use Bridge connection and then dial from my PC. This works and my PC gets the static IP and my hardware units connect to my base station. The biggest problem is that I have to manually dial the connection.
2) Use port forwarding. There are quite a lot of ports and I need to configure all of them.
I need a better solution. How should I configure my Router so that all the connection requests that are made on the static IP are routed to my PC or my PC gets the static IP....
