I am on the ADSl trial with eircom (finishing friday - grrr esat won't
let me back on no limits either), setup is dynamic IP and one IP per
person only so no multiple machine connections (even though they give you
a 4 port hub/adsl box?!?!?!?!?), servers work fine though as does
telnet ssh etc..., best answer is a dyndns account (or similar and then
auto update when you get your static IP assigned.
for anyone interested, for a while the system was running private IP
addresses which worked on a PPP over ethernet over PPP system *sob*, and
servers *obviously* didnt work then. However this changed towards the end
of the system. this did allow multiple IP's per person.
Just depends on which system they decide to go with in the end, I am
assume Esat will do something similar....
