Need a VPN for legitimate stuff
« on: 09 May 2019, 04:20: PM »
Hi All,

Basically what I really need is a fixed IP address. Oh, just get one from your ISP I hear... No good, I work from multiple locations, so I was thinking perhaps a VPN is a better solution. All it needs to be is relatively cheap, and ensure I have the same IP address (or at least same subnet range) every time I connect.

I need it for working on stuff on cloud platforms such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services, both of these platforms (as well as others) have all resources protected behind firewalls, and the the only way to access is to add an IP address as allowed through the firewall - this is a royal pain in the arse when my IP changes daily, and I also work from multiple locations in the same day.

Once again, my google searches just throw up a load of things that don't seem to make any sense to me, with adds and links that focus on anonymity and safe from snooping stuff - I just want something cheap and will give me a fixed IP - any recommendations?

Thanks in advance

Thanks all.

The static ip solution suggested by Bop seems to be what I'm after.

Thanks
