How to Use Static IPs
I have a Pace 5268ac residential gateway and purchased a block of 8 static IPs. The installation tech said my RG static IP is 22.214.171.124 and my usable IPs are 126.96.36.199-29. Two questions arise:
1) I don't see the static IP(s) anywhere in the RG admin screens. The "public IP" is listed as 188.8.131.52. That address responds to pings, unless I block pings and then it doesn't. It is also listed as my public IP on "what's my IP"-type sites. So I think this indeed is my IP. A very nice earlier response from JeffreyMC said that this address is my RG's "dynamic address", which totally befuddles me.
2) Even if I get past this, I don't see how to select which of my 5 usable IPs for use in port forwarding. I set up a firewall pinhole for my app, but nowhere in the setup process did it allow me to specify which of my 5 IPs to use. (Maybe because I only have the one???)
I'm pretty knowledgeable in networking matters, but this 5268ac beast has me confounded. Any guidance greatly appreciated.
