Attempted VPN, but failed.


When I used VPN it worked, when I didn’t it didn’t work: ie using UK mobile broadband + wifi hotspot.


Meant to mark both. Both working. Straight from home and via university vpn.

@ustulation I just remembered that some/all the mobile networks in Australia and I assume some other places (maybe UK etc) are in and of themselves a huge NAT because there was enough IPv4 so they made themselves into a NAT system with many internet facing IP addresses and everyone’s phone is part of the NATting system.

So knowing if mobiles work is also extremely important since there is a future desire to have mobile connected devices being able to be NODEs. This includes @happybeing’s computers, phones, and a number of other devices connected through routers that have a 4G and soon 5G dongle/sim to connect.


Done. Thanks! Must fill 20 char.
