Fixed IP Address with Cablecom?

Is it possible to get a fixed IP address with a regular (ie: non-buisness) Cablecom internet subscription? I'm not seeing any mention of it on their website. I think Swisscom offered this option, but charged 19CHF per month (or something like that).

...also, with my Swisscom modem, I was able to change DNS server settings, but with my new Thmoson cablecom modem, I don't see this feature in there. Is it not possible, or am I just missing it?

Re: Fixed IP Address with Cablecom?

Get one of those apps which give you an internet address that follow your Dyn. IP.

E.G. http://www.no-ip.com/

I believe this service was free a few years back, as I used it, so it'll be worth checking other options.

No.

Fixed IP is only with business connections

yeah, I guess they don't want all of their customers to run around wielding NAS devices and maxing out their upstream ;-)

Re: Fixed IP Address with Cablecom?

I downloaded the User Guide for the Thomson modem/router, and there is a setting there for DDNS (Dynamic DNS), but when I look in my router, I see this option is not there, removed by Cablecom, it appears.

Kind of pointless for Cablecom to remove it, because most DDNS have applications to install on your PC ...or if you have a router with DD-WRT, then DDNS is also incuded in that. For Cablecom to remove DDNS from the router is silly, because there's so many easy/obvious work-arounds.

By the way, I haven't used any DDNS service before, do they work well? What if I want to re-direct my website to a DDNS:

ex: MyWebSite.com
--> MyWebSite.DDNS.com --> my home IP address

...is there alot more delay there, because of the re-direction? And whats the best DDNS to use? DyDNS.com? No-ip.com?...?

Re: Fixed IP Address with Cablecom?

Mine ( router ) does not need a PC based application and has a variety of providers to choose from. My CC provide modem has not been explored though.

That's what esto says has been removed. There are, however, also several PC based software options.

I guess the advantage is that with the DDNS software built into the modem, it can update the DDNS server imediately when the IP address changes.


Edit : Oh, and your PC doesn't need to be turned on, which might be useful if you use Wake on LAN.

Re: Fixed IP Address with Cablecom?

you might find that in your contract that you are not allow to "host" websites on your ADSL connection. From my past experience with BT contract (and others) in the UK, that is not "allowed" as ADSL is not guarantee service and they also worry about file-share. So do check first if you are using it for site hosting.

Of course if someone is planning on hosting a major web-site, it's better to have a proper set-up with fixed IP address, gauranteed bandwidth, etc... but for a small blog or website that gets maybe 100 hits a month, this kind of small server thing with dynamic DNS is prefect. And really, Cablecom will never know nor care because the traffic is minimal.

Well, this kind of web service can be even hosted on a router. I have RT-N16 (128 MB RAM) with custom Tomato USB installed, with ipkg setup. You can install lightphp server and here you go

What exactly are you trying to achieve? If this is the metter of accessing some resources at home, you can always use SSH tunelling and accomplish the job with just port 22 (TCP) open only. You can use ddns to locate your router.

My fixed IP from Swisscom does not cost me anything.

Looks nice, thanks. I saw Debian WRT raising, so maybe it is a good idea to buy such device and try to play with it (compile firmware for it, port something on it), etc.

As I see with openwrt, dd-wrt and oleg firmware with tomato usb are usually not catching up that quickly. It takes years to have something to be supported, and as a result, I prefer to buy old routers

Re: Fixed IP Address with Cablecom?

Yes, I still have the older ones to play around especially with the supported chipsets eg Broadcom.

Yes, Broadcom is a pain for me, because it did not release sources of its chipset driver for RT-N16, as a result I can't actually use it in dual band (chip supports 5Ghz but this feature is not exposed by wl).

I have installed DD-WRT on my router and am looking at the possibilities, playing with Asterisk and Milkfish to see what they can do. Haven't heard of lightphp, but sounds interesting, I'll look into that, thanks.

Are you sure? Because it should be costing you 19CHF/Month:

http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/WEB_server

But, I don't like dd-wrt. I dislike installing opt in jffs as I want to preserve my flash memory.

Instead, I have configured opt on a old USB flash drive. If you are interested, I can send link to the article on my blog about this. But you will have to move to Tomato USB (assuming your router is supported by Tomato).
