Nighthawk M6 Pro - remote access

I have recently acquired a farm in a remote area.  I have cell service but not internet.  I am considering purchasing a Nighthawk M6 Pro but not sure that it will meet my needs.  With cable internet an IP address is assigned to the location.  Using that address and Port Forwarding I can access my smart devices such as thermostats and security cameras remotely.  My understanding is that a cellular modem / router  service does not assign an IP address to the site.  Is this correct?  If so, is there a work around that will allow me to access these devices remotely?  Will the Nighthawk M6 Pro allow Port Forwarding?  Are there any other issues that I may encounter.

Hi @sndflea ,


Port forwarding is supported on the M6 Pro.  Check with your wireless operator if they can sign you up to a data plan that offers a Public IP address.  The standard data plans are usually private IP addresses which wont work.

Thanks of the suggestion.  My mobile is with Verizon but am willing to open a new account with AT&T or T-Mobile if need be.
