An IP camera is a video camera that can be viewed over a Local Area Network or the Internet. The camera typically is monitored locally from a computer via the network to which the camera is attached. With just a few additional configurations of your network, you can access the IP Network Camera so that it can be monitored remotely using the Internet. This is the benefit of a network camera, as it can reside on an IP network and the video stream can be accessed or saved remotely.
Get the Default Gateway of your IP. step 2 Do this by entering "ipconfig/all" in your Command Prompt and hitting "Enter" on your keyboard. Your IP information will be brought up, and number you are looking for is the Default Gateway. This is underneath the IP address. Identify this number by its number pattern, which will look like the following: 22.214.171.124. Access your router. This is done by simply typing the default gateway from Step 1 above into the address bar of your Internet browser, and pressing "Enter." Forward your port by configuring your camera. Open the configuration section on the router web page where port forwarding is located by clicking on the "Applications & Gaming" link along the top of the page. In this menu, click on "Port Range Forwarding." Configuration sections can be located differently with each kind of router. Find this information by referring to the documentation that came with your router when you purchased it. Access your camera over the Internet. To do this, type your public IP address into the address bar of the web browser and press "Enter" in the same way as described in Step 2 when entering your default gateway. Note: The public IP address is different from your regular IP address. The regular IP address identifies computers and other devices on your network, whereas your public IP address is what is used to make yours lf known to others on the Internet. Your Internet service provider can supply you with your public IP address if you call them and ask for it. Hope it helps.
To access your camera from the Internet you will need to configure uPnP (or configure port forwarding manually) and register with some kind of dns service like viewnetcam (or know your home's external IP address assigned by your Internet Service Provider).
1. To configure uPnP on your camera, look in the network settings for an automatic network configuration option - this will trigger the camera to talk to your router using uPnP to set up port forwarding. The default for one camera is to use port 80 for the outside port and something like 192.168.1.253 for the internal network address (internal to your home only). uPnP will try to configure the second and third cameras to external ports 50000 or 50001. My router failed to configure the 3rd camera so I had to manually add a port forwarding option from my router's admin pages. To note, you can configure all port forwarding manually from within the router admin pages. Just list the internal network address to your camera (like 192.168.2.253) and specify a different port for each camera (like 50000 to 50000). You can then access your camera by typing in 192.168.2.253:5000
2. Then, you should register with viewnetcam.com. Adding your cameras on viewnetcam will give you access to them from outside your house without you having to know the IP address to your home network. You will simply type in your viewnetcam url with ":" and the port number (like username.viewnetcam.com:50000).
Note: When trying to access your camera from outside your home (or even pinging your router from outside your home), you need to know the IP address of your home. This is assigned by your Internet Service Provided and can change every time you reboot your modem. Services like viewnetcam keep track of the IP address to your home and update it automatically when it changes (your camera will communicate with Viewnetcam servers occasionally to update the IP address). All you have to remember is one constant URL (the viewnetcam url) and you can get to your cameras!
ur IP address has got nothing to do with ur camera...
what was ur IP address before u loaded the camera software...do u remember...re type the IP in the TCP/IP setting in Network setup in Control Panel....else let me know...we can work out
Set the camera to "automatically obtain an IP-address".
Connect the camera, via an Ethernet network cable, to a router.
The router will supply a valid IP-address to the camera; much simpler than trying to "manually" set an IP-address, network-mask, and gateway IP-address.
Camera Setting dialog box Camera Setting dialog box helps you control selected video source. To open the Camera Settings dialog box, select Camera Settings from the File menu. Set a preview rate in the Preview Frame Rate box. It indicates the number of frames per second in the camera window. The default value is 10 frames per second. This value doesn't interfere with broadcast or record frame rate.
Remote Cameras Remote camera is another Active WebCam program with enabled Remote Access launched on remote computer. Both programs use UDP protocol to communicate each other. If connection with Remote camera goes through firewall, make sure that the IP address of your computer, local and remote ports are opened on the firewall, and the UDP protocol is enabled. To connect to Remote Camera In the Device tab click to select Remote Camera. Specify the computer address in the IP address box. Don't place the protocol prefix (like http://) in the address, just four digits of IP address delimited by dots, like: 192.168.1.101. You can find out the remote computer IP address by clicking Get Computer IP Address from the Tools menu on the remote computer. Type port, which is opened on remote computer for remote access in the Remote Port box. This value is specified in the Port box in the Broadcasting | Remote Access properties on the remote computer. Specify port, which will be used to receive data from remote camera, in the Local Port box. If your network uses firewall, make sure that Local Port and computer's IP address are opened in the firewall. Use the Check the Port Availability button to make sure that this port is not used by another program. If the remote computer requires authorization, enter user name and password in the appropriate boxes. The authorization could be set in the Broadcasting tab in the Camera Settings window in the Remote Access Additional Settings window on the remote computer. If the Remember Password check box is checked, the user name and password will be saved among the session parameters. Cycle through cameras If you have multiple cameras you can set up a cycler to have the program to change cameras automatically. To configure the Camera Cycler:
These cameras are touchy. Hold the reset button on the back in for about 20-30 seconds. Bring up the CD software you got with the camera, it should spot the camera right off and you can configure. That seems to be the only way I can communicate with this model. After setup, then browsers, etc seem to work fine. I would also download the latest Firmware and update.
How is your webcam connected to your network? Is it connected to your PC or your router?
If it is connected to your router, go into the router settings and see if the router reassigned a new ip address to the camera. If you set the router up for DHCP, it will automatically assign IP addresses to all devices that are connected to it, as long as the individual devices are also set to dynamic IP addressing. Your router is set up for the 1.0 network, so your pc is most likely 1.2, while your router port connecting to your home network is 1.1.
Another thing you can do is make sure your webcam is turned on and go into 'My Network Places', then click on workgroup computers. See if the webcam is listed there.
Check if you can still connect to the the camera's UI, connect it to a router or computer. Try to ping its IP address and access the camera's UI, if ur able to access it, try to do the firmware upgrade again.
Hello, There are a couple things to check. Make certain that you have port forwarding enabled for port 80/80 to the IP address of the camera. Make certain that you have port forward for port 8080/0 to the IP address of the camera. Find your IP address for your Internet connection - you can go to ipchicken.com and it will display your IP address for you. Then open your browser, type in your Internet IP address on the address line and hit enter. That should bring up the guest log in window and you can log in to view the video stream. If you want to log in to the camera console to change configurations, just type the camera user name and password instead of the guest user name and log in. Hope this helps!
