Hello there

This is my first post here so HI TO EVERYONE.

Endian looks great and works great however...

I'm planning to put a GW at my home which is staying empty right now. It is just to view CCTV etc. The only option to do that is LTE (alternative would be 5Mbit old copper DSL). As we know LTE networks assign public IP dynamically. This itself would not be a problem as there is ddns client built in Endian. Unfortunatelly most of LTE networks stuck their clients behind NAT which blocks any incoming traffic (checked today with two providers, will check third tomorrow). Now to get around this and access Endian from outside?

I figured out:
- Option 1 - tunnel Endian to VPN server and then access this way - CONS: VPN server needed and also how to configure Endian as VPN client??
- Option 2 - get around provider's NAT somehow (HOW?) to allow incoming trafic;
- Option 3 - request IP in public/not shared/not NATed domain;

I'm dying for some ideas... Option 2 preferred for obvious reasons.

Many thanks!

If you are NATed it's hard to reach Endian directly. All options will lie on having some external server with a fixed IP. http://davidhsiehlo.com/bypassing-a-nat-slash-firewall-by-reverse-ssh-tunneling/
 When we had this problem we just simply install some remote access app on a windows machine behind the firewall (like Teamviewer), and access from it.
It's far from ideal, but as we have the Windows machine this was the simpler setup, no own external VPS server to reverse the access.
