Re: [DSL] Static IP Address

That's where you're wrong... If you're on a dynamic IP address, you can establish many, many, many, many PPPoE sessions either through the same modem, or from different locations. When you have only ONE static IP address on the other hand, you are limited to only being able to have ONE active PPPoE session. I have come to discover this through trial and error.

Also, Subnets are a completely different breed because they're a "virtual" link for lack of a better term. Even when running a subnet, you still have that one static IP for the PPPoE link. When you're not bound to a static IP on the other hand, the inner workings of it are different.

Despite your claim of the maximum number of connections not being limited to IP addresses, this is where you are wrong. I know this from experience from having a TekSavvy account with and a TekSavvy account without a static IP address. The Static login is only valid for ONE PPPoE session, but the Dynamic login is able to establish multiple links simultaneously, including through different locations.

I even don't know what to answer for such analytical statements. Since you have replied to almost all threads in this forum I hope you know what to do. Good luck!

It almost makes me miss Farmer Chuck/Chuck's Truck/whatever, although he's very "active" over at can.internet.highspeed.

There is no "virtual link". Understand that PPP operates at the data link layer and doesn't care about IP at all; it's just a way of encapsulating data to relay it from one node to another across a network. The "inner workings" are the same whether you have a static or dynamic IP; it's still a PPP link using IPCP to configure the relay of frames containing IP packets over the link.
