Multiple BBAs will also work, assuming you've got lots of spare cash. ;)

vpn provider that offers multi connections get around this and just manually open ports for ea device n subnet. also would need a vpn provider that offers port forwarding.

i dont no much bout dmz honestly as dont use it as just sounds unsecure like upnp, instead i just manual port forward the needed ports so not opening anything that doesnt need to be open.

You don't need a VPN at all to use multiple BBAs, and if you need to forward ports, you have to do that on your own networking equipment.

yeah no shit for bba, its a network interface. was talking dreampi. its ment to be dial up from the dc on the ip so single use of ip as back in day the dialup be set for own ip.

mind u if any of the bba supported games required an incoming port u'd have issues. the ones that support bba dont. 2 reasons i figure. one the bba behind router n more user config to work (pre upnp days) and 2 the dc could easily open incoming ports as it was the router/device on the net so no issue for ppl configuring routers

i figure it would be possible for ppl to remap the ports on the dream pi so uses diff port external but routes to same internal port for that interface. but basicly without knowing how to do that there is no easy way. and if using the dreampi to remap the ports to diff dialup interfaces would need em all connected to it with corresponding ports mapped to it and dreampi setup for more than one dialup unit to output to. doesnt matter if use vlans, u only got 1x of ea port used on ya external unless got more than 1x external ip.

tho u could config the server to output to diff external port n remap n portforward to internal dreampi ip on correct port. but that'd take the dudes like shu allowing it to use multi ports on their server code for games that need a portforward....

im rambling bit anyway, few beers down tonight n day off 2moro. my point is not really easily done without 1 enough external ips for it to run on ea mapped right. 2x server code change....

obiviosly the easiest is setuping a router device with multi nics and vpn of diff external ip on ea so all appear as different client external ip, if wanna do the 2nd the shu code is open source n have a crack at it yaself. personally im no coder so defintly cant do it. just one thing that shits me with homebrew stuff is ppl that complain about it, ive been in the modding indursty for yrs and my response when someone complains bout how something works is, well they wasnt getting paid for it and source is freely avaible so u fix it how u want.... other wise shut up and appreaciate the input from someone that took time to do it and than shared.....


hehehe sorry got a little off track with the q, didnt mean to sound as harsh with that.... just i put up with complaining bout limits of hacks i do for em and say shit like thats dumb etc..... thats where the well u do it better than man comes from

You quoted my post about using BBA, so it looked like you were saying a VPN was necessary to use multiple BBAs.
