PCP support for CG-NAT on WAN

Hi,

I need support for PCP (Port Control Protocol) in the WAN connection. This is required because my ISP provider uses (and enforces) CG-NAT (NAT444), and to map incomming connections the PCP protocol is the only supported option.

Any idea about how to handle this?

FYI, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Port_Control_Protocol
More or less, like UPnP IGD port redirections but for the Carrier connection.

I didn't find any reference which vendor or operating system supports PCP? Could you please share what hardware your ISP provides usually that is capable of PCP?

Mayeb the best for you is use a VPN service providing you a canonical name or fixed ip.
