Help The Ignorant with DSL

I am trying to get a 3rd party software vendor able to PCAnywhere into a server Behind NAT. The DSL router is a cisco 678 (el cheapo from qwest)with a dynamically asigned public IP. I can find the IP out at any given time on Qwest's side. How can I get them connected to a server behind NAT with a private address of 10.x.x.x.. Since there is no static public IP I can't set up a temporary one to one NAT.

Re: Help The Ignorant with DSL

You need a static IP my friend. It's possible to set up without, and you can always find out your dynamically assigned address, but you can't tell when that address will expire. Having a vendor connect to an ip address that may change during a session...You may want to look at other options.

Good luck
