Hello, Kevin.

If you did not order a static IP for the particular box, you will see a public IP on the Verizon service which is shared among any number of devices. Think of it as sort of a public address of its gateway being displayed. For that to work, you wouold have to program port forwarding in the provider's router/firewall. That is not going to happen.

The solution is to order static IP for the particular boxes that need port forwarding so that there is a public IP assigned directly to your box. The price from a typical provider can be higher than your pain threshold so you may need to negotiate with someone who handles the IOT accounts to get the best rate. Our static IPs cost us an additional $5/mo each.

I have a Verizon Cradle Point IBR-600 that I use for emergency internet backup and site security for project sites. They are available for all of the major carriers.   It's internal router will do port forwarding but I have not yet found a way to beat it into submission... It _should_ be forwarding ports but in my limited time working with it, have not been able to make it work in that respect.  It does provide a very stable internet connection that is dependent on the received signal and bandwidth available.  TeamViewer and browsing works great.

It has both a wired RJ-45 port and strong wireless built in.   I have a cheap laptop with TeamViewer that I typically leave at a site for remote control & IP camera monitoring via either wifi or a wired switch (usually a small Netgear switch).  I feel certain that the port forwarding issue would be simply solved but for the most part is not an issue with the TV connection to the little HP laptop.

Also be aware that IF you push backup audio to a stream decoder IP via the cell connection, it uses your data whether you are using the stream or not...

We need internet service at a new tower and it's too far out in the boonies for normal service. There is an AT&T Cell site on the same tower so we're thinking we might be able to use an AT&T Cellular Router. We (of course) need something with ethernet connections so we can hookup a PC, RDS, and Xmtr controls. 

I'm wondering if any of you have any experience in doing this and if so, what equipment you used.
