depend on what brand and type of the ip camera that you use.
in order to be able to access from internet: - you need to use a router that connect to a switch and the camera - the router must have UPnP Feature & Port forwarding. - just in case your public ip address is dynamic, you will also need a ddns for redirection.
The basic concept is, you have to configure the network setting of the camera according to the router as a gateway. usually, in the network setting, you will find a http port number. change this number from default ( 80 ) to another number from 0 to 65535 ( example 50010 or 40000 , you can choose freely, it's recommended to use port above 50000 )
then find the portforwarding function in your router, then set the port number to the ip address of the ip camera.
if it's successfull, you can directly access the camera from the internet by entering your public ip address and the port number on your browser.
for example : http://itcomm-streets.viewnetcam.com:50001 << my ip camera demo unit.
This kind of issue comes up because the ADSL2+ modem is acting like a router. That is why your Watchguard gets a 192.168.x.x IP for the WAN address. There are two fixes for this, the quick way that may still give you problems, or the longer way that should keep there from being any problems getting out to web sites.
The quick way is to change the IP address on either the Watchguard or the DSL modem so that they are not on the same LAN Subnet. So if the modem is on 192.168.1.1, then you want to be sure the Watchguard is not also on 192.168.1.1. So it would need to be something like 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.3.1. If they are already different then the one thing left to do is get the DSL modem bridged. You should be able to ask your ISP to bridge the DSL modem. Once they have done that you will probably need to set the Watchguard with your PPPoE settings that had previously been set on the DSL modem. Once you do that then the WAN IP address of the Watchguard should be a public IP address rather than a local.
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!
Could you please explain me how to you are trying to establish the vpn its a site to site or site to client another thing if you are connecting to head office through mobile user client behind any natted device you should enable nat traversal in your firewall then only i will works.
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.
I had the same problem. Even tried turning DMZ on in my router, and specified the camera IP as one in the DMZ. What helped me was using a port scanner (do a google search). I then started trying different things until I saw the port was opened. Once the port was open, I was able to access the camera from the internet, even from within my internal network. It turned out my problem was I have Vonage VOIP phone service and the Vonage router was ahead of my network router. Apparently the Vonage router wasn't allowing internet traffic to the camera. I switched positions of the routers (my wireless router is now first, and my Vonage router is plugged into the wireless router) and everything works fine now.
