My company is trying to sign up for LexisNexis services. LexisNexis (or more specifically, a service offered by LexisNexis) restricts logins to either a handful of IPs, or a range of IPs. We just have a fairly basic business DSL connection that gives us a dynamic IP.
Obviously, every time our IP changes, we lose LexisNexis service. I've called AT&T's tech support several times hoping to find out what range of IPs we could possibly be assigned. Most people I got on the phone were absolutely clueless (after explaining my problem to the first person she said "oh, you mean like wireless internet?"). The one or two people I talked to that were actually knowledgeable pretty much told me that they couldn't or wouldn't give me that information.
LexisNexis refuses to relax their security requirements, and told me that I either have to find the applicable range or buy a static IP. Unfortunately, the cheapest static IP package from AT&T is something around $75/month, and we absolutely cannot afford that.
What should I do here? Was I fed misinformation from AT&T? Is it actually possible for them to give me a range or should I be looking elsewhere for solutions? This service is vital to our doing business.
