    We purchased a couple of Zavio cameras from your company awhile back.

    I recently purchased the Linksys E4200 router (and bridged my DSL modem to it) after about a year of unsucessfull attempts at forwarding ports on a D-link combined modem/router.

    In doing the following, I finally had success:

    Disabled the firewall on the router (nothing here other than the internet modem, router, and cameras – all of which are password protected.

    Limited DHCP on the router to 1 through 150

    Forwarded ports 1024, 443, and 554 to (the IP assigned to the first camera)

    Disabled UPnP on the router and both cameras.

    I am now able to view one of our Zavio cameras using iCamViewer. My husband can also now view that camera on his phone.

    However, I can not – for the life of me – get the next set of ports forwarded in order to view the second Zavio camera. I did everything the same: went to Applications and Gaming on the router, added the new lines forwarding ports 2024, 2025, and 5000 to (the IP assigned to the second camera). When I use any of several port checker tools, they all say the second set of ports are not open, even though they say the first set are. I can't figure out why it won't open the next set of ports for the second camera. Is there a tip or trick you know of, that might help? Perhaps I should try to use UPnP for the second one?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!




    Solution found, and was operator error. The router was working brilliantly, I just had the wrong primary and secondary DNS server info in the second camera. Once I fixed that the second camera came up instantly on my iPhone…

    Thanks anyway,
