I told a friend who needs to complete a point to point hardware VPN he needed to get a static IP address at both ends. One end is his home, and so he calls AT&T uverse to have this done.
They come out and make adjustments to the router which is a Pace.
Sometime after they leave he tells me he can't get his roku to work, and after calling AT&T they tell him he needs to assign it one of his new public IPs. They did give his PC a static IP of 76.254.xxx.xxx. Oddly, when he goes out to the internet to check (ipchicken.com) it's showing his public IP as: 107.200.x.xxx
I was under the assumption they would give him a single public static IP and everything internal would have remained 192.168.1.x
He's called them multiple times and they just keep telling him all of his devices need their own IP and he's responsible for assigning them. They said static IPs are generally for corporate clients and they wont support a home with static IPs.
Anyone have any experience with AT&T and doing this residential? Is there anything he can do at the router to have one public static IP and have internal devices get IP's via DHCP?
