TransPort unable to obtain Static mobile IP from cellular provider

Issue:  The cellular interface of a Digi TransPort is not obtaining a certain expected static mobile IP address.

Cause:  Because the TransPort uses the mobile IP address that's handed to it from the cellular provider, this is a provider issue and not a Digi issue.

Resolution:  Contact the mobile provider to ensure the account/plan in question is setup properly on their end, to provide a static mobile IP address.  Typically, the type of plan that offers a static IP is a "Mobile Terminated" plan (NOT a "Mobile Originated" plan).  If using a SIM card, ask the provider what APN should be used, and adjust the APN value within the TransPort's configuration as needed, to see if that helps.
