RV042G Multi Wan Issues

Ok. I have been doing some looking around, and my current conclusion is that I can not do what I would like to. At least, with what I have currently going on. The purpose of this thread/discussion is to verify that I can or can not do what I would like to do.

I have my ISP sending me two public IPs, on the same line, but they are dynamic. I don't know what the second public IP is.

The goal was to setup two computers, with port fowarding on two public IPs via 1:1 NAT. This would be nice because there are vaious web applications/services (games) that require port forwarding. As I understand, you can only forward one unique port to one unique public IP. Thus, requesting a second IP from the ISP.

I appriciate any help given, and I appologize if there is a topic out there that cover this. I tried looking as best I could, but most didn't cover the user (me) dealing with dynamic public IPs.

Hi Sean, if you have dynamic IP's, those port forwardings are going to break along with any other kind of mappings such as 1:1  NAT.

Quite honestly, I've never heard of an ISP giving out a block of 2 or more IP addresses that are dynamic. That in itself is pretty odd.
