    Hi There,



    Yes port forwarding. Can you assist me?



    Let me know.

    So are you asking for assistance on port-forwarding? As that would seem to be the only logical way to forward traffic to your computer allowing that traffic to connect to your system.

These instructions will work on any windows computer version 2000 and up.

In order to open ports you need to gain access to your router's control panel. To do this we go to Start>Programs>Accessories>Command Prompt. From here type in: ipconfig
Press ENTER to execute the command. A list should be returned listing some IP Addresses. Look for the one associated with, "Default Gatewaty."

Here is a picture.

Afterward open your Internet Browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc...) and type the IP Address associated with the default gateway into the address field of the browser. DO NOT add www. or .com. Afterward press ENTER or click GO as if you wanted to visit a website.

Here is a picture.

Once you're at the control panel you will probably be asked to log in. If you do not know your login details you can always try the default. To find these you can either search your router's user manual or head to the online search engines entering your router's manufacturer's name, the router's model #, and the words, "default password" into the same search request to bring up the default login credentials. For example:

Linksys WRT54G default password

Here is a picture.

If you still can't manage to log in to your router's control panel you will have to contact the technical support department of your router's manufacturer asking them for assistance in resetting the login user ID and password of the router.

Once you manage to log in to your router's control panel, locate areas hinting anything in port-forwarding. Such as:

Port Forwarding
Firewall
NAT
Virtual Servers
Applications

You're trying to find a panel similar to the one depicted in this screenshot. Please note that the panel will probably not be alike. However in order to forward ports the router needs this information:

Ports to forward, on which protocol, and where to forward the ports.

Once you manage to find the appropriate screen for port-forwarding you will have to check with SAMSUNG to determine which ports need to be opened to allow remote access to your DVR.

Hello, i setup a IP cam. Create an account on dyndns.org for the IP. But now when i type the given url i am linked to the setup of my Thomson router TG585 v8 What can I do? There is nothing else except...


Hi Sten -- There are several non-intuitive things you have to setup with any router and Dyndns to make this work.

On Dyndns you can setup your static or hardly every changing dynamic Internet (external - provided by your ISP) IP address in your Dyndns account settings (Not the internal NAT IP - 192.168.x.x address of the cam). if it changes more often you need a dyndns client.

On the router you have to setup port forwarding to the internal (NAT address ex:192.168.x.x) address of the camera including the port number -- or you could just create a DMZ (feature of many but not all routers) for the internal IP of the cam.

If you've done the above correctly you might want to check the troubleshooting sections at Dyndns.org located HERE and HERE.

Happy Networking and Thanks for using Fix Ya.

I have a Buffalo WBMR-G54 ADSL Router. The local IP address of the router is 192.168.1.1. My Medion desktop computer connects connects to my Buffalo router using an Ethernet cable. I use the wireless...


> Zone Alarm free firewall and Avast antivirus have been installed on both computers

Your router is already acting as a "firewall" to block "unsolicited" traffic from reaching the computers on your LAN. So, unless you use Zone Alarm to block "outgoing" connections
(such as a computer-virus would try to make when "calling-home", there's little benefit
to using the Zone Alarm software.

> If I use Internet explorer to connect to http://myname.dyndns.org, Internet Explorer does connect successfully to the network. However, it invites me to enter the username and password for my Buffalo WBMR-G54 router - not for the storage drive.

While you are "forwarding" TCP port 21, you are not "forwarding" TCP port 80 (as used by the 'http://' protocol). So, when you connect from the Internet to your "public" IP-address, it is the router that responds, rather than one of your computers inside your LAN.

IMHO, it is "bad" that your router's web-interface is "exposed" to attacks from the Internet.
Either "forward" TCP port 80, or configure the router to use a _different_ port number for "remote management".

> If I enter the Router user name and password, that allows me to access the Router menus via the Internet, which confirms that my account at DynDns has translated the IP address successfully.

Correct. Hopefully, you're the only one who knows the correct username/password, and there is nobody that is doing "brute-force" attacks on your router, trying to login to "hijack" your router.

> if I use Internet Explorer or FileZilla to access ftp://myname.dyndns.org, I cannot connect to the router

Correct. The 'ftp://' protocol uses TCP port 21, which the router is "forwarding" to one of the computers on your LAN.

> or the storage drive - so I cannot access any of my files remotely.
> FileZilla reports -Status: Resolving address of bob1944.dyndns.org
> Status: Connecting to 78.144.xxx.xxx:21...
> Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message

So far, so good.

Is FileZilla expecting a "specific" content in that "welcome" message, or will "any" response be "close-enough" ?

On a computer on the Internet, open a command-line prompt:

Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Enter FTP bob1944.dyndns.org
Press Enter
Do you get a "connecting" message?
Do you get a "connected" message?
Do you see the "welcome" message?

Note that the FTP protocol usually uses _two_ ports for File Transfer:

* port 21 for "control" (sending/receiving commands/responses)
* a "random" port for "data" transfers (including directory-listings)

It's this "random" port that your router is not forwarding.

However, some FTP-clients (probably including FileZilla) and some FTP-servers
support "passive" mode, where both the "control" and the "data" connections "share" port 21.

So, configure FileZilla to use "passive" mode, and _hope_ that your FTP-server supports "passive" mode.

How to watch IP Camera on internet by using DSL-2640T??


let me give you few suggestions and then you can take it from there.

firstly IP camera is just what its name says..it needs a fixed IP address it may be local as in your lan where it is working or a IP address from ISP.
Now when you connect it behind router... it is essentially a camera connected to LAN.
now the problem is DYNDNS.com will give access to your router since that is connected to dynamic IP addressing. However Ip camera is behind router and to access it you need to open proper protocol and port in router .consult your router manual for doing that.

with your current setup that is the only solution. however you can connect Ip camera directly to ISP line and then use dyndns as in case of router. though i dont know how feasible that will be for you.you have not mentioned IP camera model so cant help with specific details.

Remote access to DVR behind router


Hi Desi

I would like to give you step by step parameters to fix the problem. However there is no enough information. Model of DVR is important so we can know what kind of configuration it requires. Also your steps, What you have done so far? Have pinged the IP address of the DVR? usually DVRs doesnt require a special DNS configuration most of them works like IP cameras. If you provide the model info I can I can try to provide guidance accordingly.

Thanks

Unable to connect from Internet to WL0799GE


make sure you have a switch that has DHCP. the DSL modems are terrible at this, make sure you have a D-Link  router or similar, go to a computer store and ask an associate
for a Wireless Router

Find the IP address of the drive and make sure you can ping it. to get the IP of the drive, go into your routers settings (usually 192.168.1.1 in your web browser. Log in using guide found in manual. then go to DHCP section and look at the leases shown on the page, the nas drive will have a familiar name, it will be one of the two if you and your pc is connected to the router and nothing else at the moment. Once you have the IP you can reference that like your would from the internet. Not sure if you use VPN but you also need to forward the ports under Port forwarding/triggeing section. Refer to Nas drive manual to find what ports, or google search the drive.

Start>Run
Type "CMD" into the field no quotes
from there type for example:
ping 192.168.1.4
