RE: State Super-DMCA Too True

[..]

AT&T/Comcast doesn't sell business accounts
(at least not here) but they will now sell you a more expensive package,
3.5Mbit/384kbit, for $95/mo, including 'model rental fee', it includes
5 IP addresses "VPN Capability"(?) as well.

  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Perhaps that is advertised as such because of issues around VPN clients
behind NAT/PAT devices. Some work better than others. Having a non-NAT
address stops most of those issues.

Or, that's me trying to figure out what a marketeer might've been thinking.
Ugh. Ouch. Stop. That hurts. Quit it. Ouch. Ouch.

Thanks,

Some cable ISPs block IPsec and PPTP for "residential" service, claiming
VPNs are only used by telecommuters and thus require their more expensive
"business" services.
