[FRIAM] virtualized public IPs

Thanks Stephen and Gary.   Since what I’m doing at the moment is just with ssh, I can just use ProxyJump<https://www.madboa.com/blog/2017/11/02/ssh-proxyjump/>.
Good to know about the web-oriented ones too.   ZeroTierOne will have to wait for a few more free cycles, but that does look ideal.

While not exactly virtualized IP, can you accomplish what you need via a dynamic DNS solution, ngrok.com<http://ngrok.com> or localtunnel.me<http://localtunnel.me> and then manage routing on your internal network?

The following seems like it is simple thing to address, but it doesn’t seem common.  Here are my assumptions:

1) I have several computers configured in complicated ways that I’d like to keep under my physical control.

2) I have an ordinary residential type of internet connection with one public IP.

3) I use various other computers, and some of them have irritatingly restrictive network policies.  I would like these computers to ask my computers to do things.
But they won’t route traffic on unusual ports to the internet.  So, for example, remapping ssh traffic to high ports and then using NAT to map them back on my end won’t work.
They also will refuse to allow VPN traffic to be initiated from their end.

I have looked at several VPN providers, but as far as I can tell all of them try as hard as possible to obfuscate the exit node.   I don’t want to do that, I want to have public points of contact, esp. for ssh that map directly back to me.

I suppose I could go to Azure or AWS and make a node do whatever I wanted, but I was hoping there was a standard service for this.   I don’t want to pay per-hour charges for compute that isn’t even compute.

Any ideas?    Sorry for the pedestrian question.  We all know how important it is to have the best words<https://www.washingtonpost.com/video/national/trump-i-have-the-best-words/2017/04/05/53a9ae4a-19fd-11e7-8598-9a99da559f9e_video.html>.
