    I have got a few sites including my house that were all working on the Wiser 2 app via a Dynamic DNS but have stopped connecting when the phones are on 4G.
    They still work remotely when on another WiFi but not via 4G.
    Any ideas?

    Who is the 4g provider? some mobile providers proxy and block ports differently between networks for bandwidth control. Telstra should be fine, and work regardless, others mileage varies.

    The other possible reason could be that the mobile carrier uses cg nat ( carrier grade network address translation).
    Basically you and many other subscribers share a public IP address.
    This practice is starting happen in fixed wired systems as well.

    +1 regarding CG Nat. Has caused me many a headache explaining to clients that they may need to pay the extra per month for a static IP from their service provider.

    The procrastination to move to IPv6 is just too real isnt it?!
