There are 2 things that must be done to setup an IP security camera for remote viewing when your Internet connection uses a dynamic IP address:
1) You must setup port forwarding to your camera to access from outside of your local area network. You can find some resources to do this here:
2) When your Internet connection uses a dynamic IP address, you must setup a DynDNS account and input the account information into your router so it stays up to date in regards to what the current IP address is. You can find information on this here:July 11, 2009 at 7:30 pm #31639
OK, I setup Port-Forwarding for Port 80 of the IP camera on the router. When I go to the Internet IP address of my DSL line, I can see the “landing page” for the camera, the controls (pan, tilt, zoom, record) and other control buttons, but a big black 2-inch square box where the actual video image should be. I know the camera is working, because when I go to the actual IP address on my router (192.168.1.127), I see everything. Whet do I have to do to enable the actual video image itself to get sent thru?July 11, 2009 at 8:17 pm #31640
Piece of Cake! Port 80 was just the HTML web stuff; I opened up ports 1 thru 9000 from the camera and everything (sound, video, control) came thru.
