Following on from my work with Great Asby Broadband (GAB) implementing a new high speed wireless network to their now 70+ subscribers, a decision was taken to re-engineer the network somewhat to allow easier remote access.
CLEO (Cumbria and Lancashire Education Online), the Regional Broadband Consortium that delivers an internet connection to the village to be shared out between their subscribers, would only provide Great Asby with a /28 block of IP Addresses leaving 14 usable IPs which obviously isn’t enough to give each client an IP thus allowing access to all devices remotely for management. Another reason we wanted to do this was to stop a main public IP being blacklisted on a site or by an email provider for spamming and then all customers having to put up with the consequences of this.
