/29 IPv4 allocation still available on ADSL?


[link to this post]
 
I used to have a /29 allocation when I was last with Zen for ADSL.

I notice the regrade option is still available on the regrade wizard, is this still available with ADSL?

Thinking about getting a Raspberry PI and setting it up as a small mail server connected to my network.

It is still available. I think you may have to call to request it however.

There may be an admin fee for changing it, and it is very likely you will lose your current address.

Could you not use port forwarding?

Also be aware that their website advises that when provisioning a /29 (or any network), Zen will publicly place your details in the RIPE whois database for that network. If this bothers you, you may want to just go with what Phil has suggested and use port forwarding.

I shall probably use port forwarding yes but noticed the option was still there (as I was also thinking about regrading to active from lite) so just thought I'd ask.

Why the need for a /29?

I just use port forwarding and my single IPv4 address supports SMTP, POP3, FTP and HTTP.
