BT Infinity Router Configuration


[link to this post]
 
I am about to upgrade to BT Infinity and I was wondering if I it is possible to configure the hub for the 2 existing PCs and add a third PC that is to act as a Web Server and a Mail server. What I want to do is host a web site and host my own mail server. Will I need more than 1 static IP address for instance. Thoughts please.

I've no idea on the Hub, but with most routers, using Network Address Translation you can map the required ports to the machine(s) in question, thus requiring only a single IP address.

Consumer Infinity does not provide a static IP address, you need to pay the extra on the BT Retail business products.

NAT should accomplish what you want.

i set up my neighbours HH3 this evening and I am sure I noticed a DDNs option, so something like No-Ip can be used.

Ok a static IP number it is not, but it is pretty close

Yes, you can do it with DDNS and sticking the web server outside the firewall.

Dynamic dns settings at http://192.168.1.254/html/settings/a_dynamic_dns.html

Rather than putting the server outside the firewall (dangerous), set up port forwarding at http://192.168.1.254/html/settings/a_port_forwarding...

Happy BE user for several years: but moving to BT Infinity 2 for upload speed.

So I did not imagine it.
