Hello, I have a motorola droid phone with a static IP that is provided by verizon. The static ip is specific to the phone, and I know that having a static IP on a droid is an obscure feature, but you CAN get one if you are a Verizon business customer and are willing to pay a $500 fee. I am able to tether the phone with a laptop and get internet connection (linux fedora OS on laptop), using CyanogenMod USB Tether, Harald's Wired-Tether, AziLink, etc. But I am unable to forward any incoming connections to the laptop from the phone as of now and thus cannot utilize the static IP for its original intention, like how you would use a hard wired static IP. Does anyone have experience doing this?
In specific, I can't get the ports forwarded from the ppp0 interface to the usb0 interface and through to the Laptop. I've tried pushing the iptables binary and using it but when trying to set up forwarding rules I get a FIX ME! error (I assume there's a missing kernel mod). I also tried bridging ppp0 and usb0 but the current kernel doesn't seem to support this feature. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get this working? Are there any routers that work with the motorola droid that can get the static ip forwarded? Or, does anyone have a suggestion of how I can accomplish this thru programming? Thanks
