That was the first thing I tried, it does not work. A simple Google search gave me that answer. I believe the problem I am having is with the AT&T Sierra wireless usb modem. From my research Googling, AT&T blocks it's modems from being able to forward ports on the routers they are connected to. Is there a work around to this, paying AT&T $500 to open a port and $200 setup fee is not my solution. Would setting up a VPN network solve this problem if so, I need a step by step guide on how that is done?
Network Technician: Pete, Networking Engineer replied 2 years ago

An easier solution would be to try a different modem, do you have another one available?

Different modem will not work. The only Internet access in my area is through a mobile network. AT&T is the only lte service available. Satellite Internet is available, but is cost prohibitive, slower speeds, and has data caps.
