Hi all, thanks for this input. Here is the basic problem with ANY cell phone carrier network.
They all use private ip addresses.
The cell carriers route the public static ip that they temporarily assign to your device through another internal router that then forwards it to a private ip address.
When you are on any internet providers network you see 2 ip addresses that are assigned to you. (Double NAT) The ip address of the supplied router from the provider… Which is a private/local ip. (Normally 192.168.1.1). Your router then uses NAT (Network Address Translation) to route all incoming and outgoing traffic from your devices/pcs in your home to the internet using a dynamic public ip address…(IE, 22.214.171.124)
Its this dynamic public ip that is needed to use VPN’s, access Servers, Remote Access, FTP, P2P ect. Without ACCESS to this dynamic assigned public ip address it becomes difficult to do these basic task we all want to do.
The cellphone carriers… Namely T-mobile, figured this out and since they only provide us a local internal private ip we cant setup typical VPN, remote access, p2p in the typical ways.

My security bot will probably have a laptop and asus router along with cellphone usb tethered to router. I would rather not have to have all this but i also need to drive this thing remotely.
The confusing part is do I need the radio reciever and transmitters AND the 4g/lte network? Or can I simply by pass the radio all together? OR are there any radio reciever and transmitters that work on wireless router, bluetooth and typical remote controll radio frequencies?
If we could simply use cellular for everything it would be like a poor mans satelite comms… Probably more reliable and shorter latency issues?
I will checkout the info…thought I would add more details of the mobile cell networks nonsense in order to not provide unlimited data even though you may be signed up for it…
