Inbound connections on EE 4G


[link to this post]
 
Does EE allow inbound connections on 4G?

Recently switched over to EE 4G from Three 3G and trying to get inbound connnections working without much success, same hardware just different network, I appear to be issued with real Internet IP so no NAT issues but can't even get the router to ping so just wondered if EE block inbound connections at all?

In short, no.

You need some DNS type service or a Corp Link solution (chargeable)

On the consumer stack your only option is DNS type service.

Thanks for the info both.

It looks I will need to keep my Three connection going then and maybe drop it to the lowest package as it's only used to check CCTV occasionally.

In reply to a post by bookey:

If I understand correctly, you are saying that there is a way of getting a no-NAT IP address on a consumer contract, but you get a dynamic IP address and have to use a dynamic DNS service to redirect traffic to that address. If so, which APN should be used, and is the use of that APN limited to mobile broadband contracts?
