How to connect an ip camera with a different ip address


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. 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: 111.222.3.4. 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 yourself 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.

I am trying to get my servailliance camera hooked up via the internet. I am not getting a picture and I guess I need to set up a forwarding port on my router. How do I do this?


Look at the brand of router and model router and go to their web site. Down load / read the steps to log in to your router. Enter the URL link or IP , then user name and password. Look through the setup for a section that is labeled port forwarding. I've worked with several home consumer routers and their all web based and look pretty strange at first but study it and your see how to tell the router to forward a port to a specific IP. But that will only work it your computer always connects with the same IP on the router and that you always use that same computer to see your camera. Routers by default are DHCP and assign you an IP at random when you connect. Port forwarding would require you to also setup your computer to static IP, Meaning you MAC address would always be assigned the same IP, so the port forwarding would always be able to forward to the correct IP. Sounds much harder than it is. Your question sounds like you want to ensure the camera ip/port is passing through the router, so your home computer can see the video. Thats how you could forward a port to something. But if your wanting to see your camera from anywhere on the web then you'll want to make sure your router isn't blocking that port to the open WAN (wide area network). But I'd check your firewall on your computer FIRST>. Thats all a firewalls is for. Try connecting to your camera with your firewall / anti-virus software off for a test first. If it works then you need to be setting up your firewall on your computer and not your router. Firewall is usually part of your anti virus software and or, part of windows. Go to control panel, look for the security shield icon on XP and disable the firewall. You'll get some errors, but this is just for a test. I can't remember exactly the step for windows xp, but again look for help on your operation system of google it. Also don't forget about the lights on your router. Use them to help troubleshot. Went you plug the camera in, does the activity light come on? You can also have a bad cable...... good luck!

Port forwarding


As i remember all port forwarding was under Virtual Server configuration. But you need to check maybe web cam is using more then 1 port. Try to play with netstat to see, to which ports Connection establishing when you are connecting to cam.

Trying to connect to remote camera. I go to a wifi spot and can connect. I try from my home and can't connect. What setting needs to be changed?


You cannot get to the outside of your router from inside the network. Use the internal IP address instead.

For instance:

Lets say you use http://camera.mydomain.com:8080 to get to the camera.

That URL points to your router which has some IP address. eg 80.180.23.234

You router forwards the request on port 8080 to the internal IP address of your camera eg. 192.168.1.45 an it is this address that you need to connect when inside the LAN.

Your need to replace the details above with those specific to your setup.

How do i install ip cameras so that i can see them over the internet? I have a dvr connected to my 2wire modem and I do have static ips


You need to find out what ports your ip cameras use, and then setup port forwarding on your router. If you have 1 box that controls all the cameras, you just need to forward port 80 traffic to that box. If you have multiple cameras with NO main junction box, you will need to go into the setup on each camera, and specify a port to use.
Then in the router, set up port forwarding to forward each different port, to the camera it goes with. Then when you want to see the camera from home you would type the ip address in the browser, then a colon, then the port number --> IPADDRESS:81

Network routing problem with Axis Camera's


They would need to be on different TCP or UDP port numbers ... in order to access them from the Internet. I'm guestimating that on the LAN you can access all of them because they are on different RFC1918 IP Addresses (e.g. 192.168.1.10, 20, 30) but same port number (e.g. port 80 for web.)

Once you hop through NAT to get to the Internet you now only have one IP Address. The real Internet IP Address. So now you have to have different port numbers for 2 or more cameras. For example use:

#1 port 80
#2 port 8080
#3 port 8081
#4 port 8082

How about that?

And you will have to forward each of those ports to the correct ip address for the correct camera.

Ip camera logon ptoblem


You might have forwarded the wrong ports of the camera to the wrong IP address. Make sure you assign static IP on the camera. Firewalls should be turned off as well.

Port forwarding


try to use another port number aside from 8080, like 3000 or 5000. make sure that the ip address set on the router is the ip address of your camera (note: it should be set to static).

hope this'll help you

You need to forward the remote desktop port to your server. The Remote Desktop port is 3389. Go to the port forwarding section of your router and find out your Server's network IP address and assign it to forward the Remote Desktop port of "3389". Save your changes and try connecting again.
