WAN link without Static IP from ISP

Specs: Windows Server Standard 2003

I am trying to find a hardware appliance box which will resolve a connection in an office to office senario.
I already rang the ISP here locally, there is only 1 in the whole country and they sell a package which includes a VPN and a number of static IP addresses!
I only want one static IP address and they dont supply anything except this stupid package!
They are trying to charge $1,450 US a month just for a static IP address!
Do you know of a hardware appliance which will enable two offices to connect without my ISP getting involved?

Please HELP!!!!!!

We use sonicwall's to establish site to site vpn. It is a requirement that at least one site has a static ip address so the sonicwall can "agressively" find the other sonicwall to establish the vpn.

Instead of the isp talk to your phone provider. We use our phone providers T1 which has a static to get to the other site that uses a isp/dsl. Cost for the T1 is around $400 a month after taxes.

What country is this??? $1400 is a point to point fiber line here.

Are you talking about a dedicated line or fractional T-1? Do you need that much speed both ways?

You might be able to use a dynamic dns address and then use choose a vpn solution. http://www.tek-tips.com/faqs.cfm?fi...

You have to tell us what it is that you are doing. Is this just for file replication or are you doing live database transactions which need a 99.99 uptime with no changes in speed. This is what your ISP is trying to sell you by providing a T1 dedicated line. In addition a T1 is more secure because it is connection oriented. This is why it cost so much. You can still do VPN through regular internet with varian speeds and connection up time if all you are doing is off-site backups and file syncing. Another option if you need 99.99 up time but don't care about speed and line dedication, then you might want to look into Frame Relay.
