Outgoing static ip

Hi, ok so we all know we can get a static ip on residential fibre.

If a business customer wanted to connect to something at home they could use dyndns or noip to get a hostname which updates, that's great.

However, what if someone who works in server admin is called at home occassionally to log into a server and do some admin. If that server is ip restricted, he needs a static ip to whitelist, which he doesn't have.

Is there anything like noip etc which works the other way or is dedicated ip VPN the only way?

Re: Outgoing static ip

The VPN route is the only way I can think of, just make sure the VPN doesn't change IP or servers, some hosts allow you to change location and each time your IP will change, personally I have a small VPS setup with OpenVPN and to host my email, costs me around £6 every 3 months.

The VPS allocated IP then becomes my static IP for browsing.
