How to bypass my ISP NAT?


Hi all!

I'm looking for infos about technical strategies to bypass my ISP NAT.
When I star my internet connection with an internet usb key over mobile broadband, I obtain a PPP interface with a private IP, so seems my ISP has built a NAT configuration, changing its old configuration with public IP assigned to users.

So now, I'd like to obtain a public IP to be directly on the net and solve some issue that this change has made.

Which ways could I follow to re-obtain a full featured internet interface like before?

I've read about:

1- vpn services (openvpn)

2- something about using IPv6 (but I haven't well understood how it exactly works).


Could you explain me some other ways to bypass my ISP NAT?

And could you explain or just link some docs about how IPv6 could be involved to obtain an internet public IP behind a NAT?

Hope you can answer, thanks in advance!
See you!

With respect to the IPv6, it'd be similar to vpn, since I'm guessing you are getting an ipv4 address from your provider. Instead of vpn it'd be an IPv6 over IPv4 tunnel with the far endpoint being at an IPv6 provider that gives you an IPv6 ip/block. I haven't played around with this lately but Hurricane Electric used to offer free ipv6 blocks over tunnels like that. I'm guessing there are others as well. But it should be noted that if where you want to go is only in IPv4 land then IPv6 won't help you.

I'd tend to agree with Nemesiz, but we may need to know more. In a strict sense a vpn is private between two points (until some idiot messes it up.)

It's use would be between one or more external sites and a home office for example. The external site would connect over a secure line and for the most part the external and local would act as a lan.

What people do is pay money to connect to some site (of unknown secuity.) They believe that by making a secure connection to that site and then surfing they are somehow safer. I don't believe so myself.

You can use VPN in a lot of way. If you need to make your PC acceptable to others you can rent cheap VPS (example ovh.com ~2.5) and configure it like a route to forward ports to your PC.

As of VPN software I use SoftEther.

I assume that the OP is talking about what Nemesiz is referring to. As to it being of any value other than to maybe get past geo restrictions I can't say. Personally I don't believe it improves security in any way.

My ISP is mobile telepony company TIM (Telecom Italia mobile).
Recently they have changed their policy putting their users behind a NAT...

After that switch, I've notice some issues in data transmitted...
Compressed data instead of raw.. And other boring issues...

Trying a free vpn service, the above issues seem to disappear, so I suspect my ISP new network configuration is in a sort of testing state.
Now I'm looking for a way to bypass ISP testing troubles...
Morever public IP assignment is needed by some network programs like p2p for example.

I hope they fix it, but anyway NAT will be on also after they complete their test period.

My connection speed is about 2Mbits/s and I'm limited to 20 GB data per month.
So, I don't need a great vps/vpn service, I'm interesting in stability and cheapness...

OVH VPS solutions seems ok... 2.5 /month are not so expansive (30 /y).

Do you know any other service like that?

What services are you wanting to run that require a routable IP address?

If you are wanting to run some type of server setup, try looking into some cheap cloud hosting service. There are many to choose from.
