My Business Wireless Broadband APN for incoming VPN access

We have a "My Business Wireless Broadband" account.


We are using this account for internet access at our office.


I would like to know what APN we can / should use with this account that would allow us to access our site / office remotely.  We are setting up a new router with inbuilt 4GX modem.  This modem has an inbuilt VPN server capability (a number of different types).  We want to use one of these VPN servers to access our office remotely.  


I know we may have issues with changing WAN IP addresses etc, but I know it can be done as we also have a Telstra ADSL connection with backup 4G modem (sierra air card) and we have managed to set up the VPN server in the Telstra DEV2020.  I know that SIM uses the telstra.extranet APN.  I tried this one but it doesn't seem to work.


The modem we are trying to get to work is a Teltonika RUT980.


I know I may need to contact Telstra to get some different code added to our account or something, but just thought I would ask the question.


If anyone has any experience with this it would be greatly appreciated.

it should only work with telstra.internet unless ext has been configured by Telstra. I have heard in the past about it not being able to be added on those plans but you would need the support team to activate before ext would work.
