Public appearance for line without public IP

Public appearance for line without public IP

Public appearance for line without public IP

Hi all.

I have a LAN guarded by a Sonicwall TZ190 with a WAN connection through a Cable company (Cox Cable) at a (relatively) slow speed (10M down / 2M up). That line has several public IP addresses. I also have a high speed connection through a private company (100M down/up) that has no public IP addresses, but I need to use that line to stream HD video. I have a Mac (G5, dual processors) running the Wowza Media Server. Is there a commercial service that I can establish a VPN or tunnel to (preferably from the Sonicwall) that would give me a public IP address to get to the Wowza server from the high speed line? I have considered using Google Compute and Amazon Web Services, but I don't need their computing power; just the access, and a constant static IP address.

set up no.ip.org dns and a small piece of software on the pc / server to keep the external ip address updated. you can use this address to remote in to the network. I use it for camera systems in my house
