I am moving and am going from a cable modem to a DSL line. I am kinda
bummed, I really prefer the ease of networking with my cable modem than
the pain I see coming forward with the DSL line.
Basically, on my cable modem I have two static IP's, and I am having to
consolidate to one Static via DSL, but I think I can get it to work for
What I want to be able to do:
Assign the one static IP address to my DSL router.
Route incoming requests to my IP to various machines on my internal
network based on their port. Basically, when someone comes into my IP
address (or my domain name) on the web port, I want them to go to my web
server. When they come in on my telnet port, I want them to get routed
to my linux box (different machine). (Basically, I want to be able to
give my internal machines static non-routable addresses, and then do
port mapping to those IP's depending on the port requested).
Is this possible with any of the currently available DSL routers? The
extra caveat is that the router will have to do PPoE... Wonderful. All
this just worked with the cable modem. <raspberries>
The Linksys 4-port Router handles PPoE and seems to have some ability to
open ports, but I dont think it does everything that I need... Please,
give me some help here!
Thanks so much
