Conor replied to paulmilsom's topic in Computers/NetworkingJust to add for others whom may stumble across this post. 4G/5G Mobile/Cellular operators use one of three methods to provide you with an Public IP address. 1. Static IP on your router (you can set up port forwards with this type) 2. Dynamic Public IP on your router (you need dynamic DNS or some other method to know the current IP, but port forwards can be gotten to work) 3. Carrier NAT (CGNAT) your public IP sits in the carriers core network, you can't use port forwards. I have uploaded an image below to illustrate this. For these you need VPNs etc. (Sorry Blatant sales pitch: check out Netcelero.com) Also at time of posting STARLINK is CGNAT.
