    The problem that I'm having, is that it will setup fine when cabled with the LinkSys wireless router but it won't connect wirelessly. The setup seemed to go well and I set a static IP for it on my linksys router. I used a laptop running Windows Vista. I was assured by Panasonic that everything was compatable. Also I was checking out the Support on the Panasonic site and I discovered a couple of driver up dates with no instructions or explanation as to the need for the updates. Does anyone have any additional information?



    Thanks

Are you trying to access the camera in the local network? Have you assigned a static ip address to the camera? Which router are we using?

How to configure the UPNP in panasonic camera?If we need access from the internet should we register in viewnet.com?


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!

I have a BL-C131 camera and I need to change the port number. Currently the camera is on port 50000 but this is blocked on my office firewell. how can i change the port and what port should i keep to get...


Good question. It is easy to change the port if you can actually log on to the camera. (Setup/Network(IPv4)/Connection Mode. Then choose either static or DHCP and change the port number.However, I suspect you are asking this because the office firewall will not allow you to connect to the device. Thats a problem, because this camera is a web server and you need to access it through its IP address to change its address!! I have hit this problem with another web server camera and I was able to use port 8080 in that case. What I did was set up the camera at home on my router and locked in the new port number and then used DHCP to let the work network assign a different IP address. However, many network administrators block whole ranges of ports. I presume you have tried simple Port 80? You may need to ask your network Admin what ports are open. There will always be some. I have encountered a problem recently with Viewnetcam and my IP provider...Verizon... which is blocking a whole range of incoming port numbers because their terms of service are that you cannot operate a web server on your residential network so they block all traffic that is trying to access it.

Cannot register 2nd BLC30a with viewnetcam.com


RECEIVED THE FOLLOWING INFO FROM A PANASONIC REP IN TORONTO PERTAINING TO SETTING UP A SECOND CAMERA:
"THE FIRST CAMERA MUST NOT BE AT ADDRESS XXXX.XXXX.XXXX.253 (EXAMPLE 192.168.1.253). DO ONE OF THE FOLLOWING BEFORE SETTING UP THE SECOND CAMERA:
1. CHANGE THE IP ADDRESS OF THE FIRST CAMERA THROUGH STATIC SETUP (EXAMPLE 192.168.1.252)
2. DISCONNECT THE FIRST CAMERA FROM THE NETWORK PRIOR TO SETTING UP THE SECOND CAMERA. (THE FIRST CAMERA WILL GRAB A NEW ADDRESS THROUGH DHCP THE NEXT TIME IT IS CONNECTED).

THE REASON FOR DOING ONE OF THE ABOVE IS THAT THE FIRST CAMERA IS PROBABLY STILL AT AN IP ADDRESS ENDING IN 253. A NEW OR FACTORY RESET CAMERA WILL WANT TO GRAB THE SAME ADDRESS AND CAUSE AN IP CONFLICT ON YOUR NETWORK.

HOPE THIS HELPS YOU.

Unable to access camera through the Internet


Which port did you open? I found that my isp was blocking both 80 and 8080. Eventually I was able to access the camera with another port. But when you use a non standard port you have to specify this after the url.
