Hi colin,and zaerc
please accept my most humble and embarrassed apologies,
all BT domestic adsl is on dynamic addressing,
EDIT warning .....rant about to start
UNLESS a further fee (£5 10$ pcm)for a static address is extorted;-alternatively one can use their thoughtfully provided own brand voip, which costs almost the same as normal ptsn calls,the quality is crap, and it specifically precludes using any other provider, has limited own brand, expensive hardware,and unless it's deactivated will not allow my spa3102 ata to work.- oh , by the way,forget about any sort of pbx-
I'm allready locked in to their BS monopoly - with no realistic alternative (so much for local loop unbundling !), - no dsl without a ptsn line for example,(line rental? - what's that all about ?)-
so I WILL NOT pay the money grubbing , couldn't care less bastards one penny more than I absolutely have to !!!
So tommorrow, rather, later today I'll start again , going the dyndns route,
ONCE AGAIN ...
.................APOLOGIES for being such a pillock,
.................MANY THANKS for your patience , time and effort,
