Does any one know if the Broadband from BSNL provides public IP address?I need to have public IP ( Dynamic is ok ) address in order to remotely Log into my reomote machine.Right now the Cable provided by Hathway in Bombay and Nasik and other cities provides Internal IP address. This dosent allow one to remotely connect to computers. Any thoughts or workaround?A

Amit,Yes, with BSNL DataOne you get a public IP @$$igned dynamically when you connect with your userID /pwd using PPPoE over DSL.

Get yourself a free hostname.(Go to dyndns.org and register for free upto 5 hostnames). Get any auto updater software or free vbs script to update everytime you log on and thats it, use that hostname from anywhere to get your computer, even if its got dynamic IP.

hi Amit,

The IP @$$igned is not an IP from that designated for private use, but an IP which is a public one ie 59.92.x.x

Right from cmd propmpt, ipconfig gives this info, once you have logged in with PPPoE userID/pwd.

On using mIRC , the servers are able to pick this IP and just now for your sake checked with whatismyip.com. It was able to correctly identify this ip address.

So BSNL DataOne dynamically @$$igns a public IP address.

But a bit of bad news regarding the service. After I posted yesterday prasing the DataOne service, today evening from around 5Pm till 10.30PM the service was down. (Error 768: Remote server not responding).

And the worst part, NO customer service. NO one even picked up the phone. (Government of India company like BSNL needs to understand that Internet is 24hrs not just government working hours). If BSNL does not setup a toll free, 24hr technical help desk, it is going to be a big problem.

It is working fine now. Gving BSNL some leeway because it is a m@$$ive rollout and there is bound to be teething troubles. Will update and let you guys know if these kind of service breakdowns keep recurring and time taken to restore the service by BSNL.
