Hi, can anyone help me. I have a restaurant where we have just upgrade the web cameras from static images to live video feed. We had 1 camera doing live feed already and were able to set up port forwarding for this static ip address to allow us to access over the web. We just installed 3 new cameras and again set up port forwarding. The cameras work perfectly on the LAN but we cannot connect to them via the internet. I can access the router and the 1 camera over the web but not the others. Can anyone suggest what might be causing this problem.

Re: 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.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

What are you using to view the Camera? Is this the only IP camera you are viewing/.accessing on the network? If it is not, are you using different IPs in the non-DHCP pool. Typically you do not have to set-up port forwarding to gain access to the camera within the network. Normally port forwarding is set-up when you are outside your network and need to gain access to different applications/devices in your network using the same static IP address. Let say you have a camera ip on 192.168.1.20. You can connect to the camera with your web browser inside your network with the IP 192.168.1.20 (obviously), but if you have the camera set up to only be triggered on a specific port (other than the browser's default 80) let's say 100, then you would enter 192.168.1.20:100. If the only thing on your network is the camera that you want to access from outside. you would setup in your router to route all incoming requests from port 80 (which is the web browser default) to the IP of the camera. Sometimes routers ask for a range just enter 80 to 80. If the camera is working on a different port like 8001 then you would port forward 8001 to 8001 to IP 192.168.1.20. You would enter in your web browser (off-site) your static IP 188.8.131.52:8001. But I would suggest if the camera is the only thing you will be trying to gain remote access to, then leave it at 80 and set up forwarding for port 80 to the IP. That way you can set up a free DNS service and not worry about paying extra for a static.
Just install complate sofware not only the driver, because you installed only the driver you can use the camera.. if you use the camera without program or complate software.you meet some problem... just install complate software
More than likely, you've just got a bad camera. I've helped with several problems with P/S cameras where the screens are either noisey or records a static like image. 9 times out of 10, it's the processor. Unless the camera is new or still under extended warranty..,
Ditch the Barracuda and use the SonicWall Content Filtering option, it's cheaper anyhow.
Barring that, reset it to default, and make sure that it is using the SonicWall as its gateway, along with the proper DNS settings. Also, check for a firmware upgrade on the unit. I've run into a few Barracudas that have nothign in the knowledge base but a firmware upgrade fixes them.
This is for a slightly different model number but... 1. set your pc to have a static address 2. on router > tool box > games&applictation sharing > add new application 3. name it Axis Camera and assign port 2500 4. assign this to your PC

Test the camera by turning it on, if the menus can be seen and no picture, then you may have a ccd problem, common with these cameras along with a list of others. http://www.nikonusa.com/email_images/nikonusa/service_advisory/coolpix.html
