Re: port forwarding ? XRouter MIH-1340A

I love port forwarding things..

First, you need to find out what your link to the admin panel is.

To find that go to start>run>type cmd and hit enter.
Now in that black type "ipconfig" and press enter(w/o quotes)

Look for a "Default Gateway" mine is look for something like that.

Now go into your browser and type that address, now you need to login to the router panel.

Now if you want me to look up the rest I need to know who made your router, and if you don't mind confirming the model number as its above, but I want you to double check please.

Once you do what above and its asking for a user and pass, you need your login. Usally by default mine was admin-user/admin-pass your may be different, Look in your manual that came with the router or call the person that made it they can tell you.

Now when you get inside the panel you'll need to look for an area that says port forwarding.

I have no idea where it is, thus I do not know the exact model, and make of your router.

It will ask for UCP,etc just put both in that option.
Then the only part you should have trouble on is the IP.

It should say like 192.168.1. and a blank that you fill in.

In those last 3 you would put 103,104,etc this is how you find out.

Go to that black screen that was up above, and type ipconfig/all and look for your Physical Address, or IP mine looks like in that blank for me I would put 102.

One that IP Camera you need to find outs its IP, look in the manual..

I hope this helps educate you some what.

If you are trying to access the DVR server from outside your network, you need to use port forward, in that way you will use your DVR client to connect to the router's public IP, the router will be forwarding the port the video system use to the computer, just configure the computer's IP in the router's port forwarding configuration.

.Probably you need to set your router to port forwarding. Use these guides to help you learn how to forward ports for well known applications such as uTorrent and Minecraft, as well as any other application or program you would like.
Start by selecting your router manufacturer from the list

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.

I would like to configure port fowarding on the Cisco 857 router using the http interface rather than via any coding. Is it possible and what do I need to do? In my scenario, the router must be configured...

It is possible to configure your router via a web browser. Although it’s disabled by default, your router has its own mini HTTP server built in. This provides another way to gain access to the router for the purpose of issuing commands. To enable the HTTP server, you have to use the command "ip http server" from the global configuration mode.

cisco(config)#ip http server

Then open a web browser and point it to one of your router’s IP addresses. The interface is not really nice, but you can issue commands using hyperlinks.
For security reasons I still suggest that you keep the HTTP server turned off, since it offers just another point of access for potential hacking.

What is so bad about the command line? Configuring port forwarding is actually pretty easy, once you know the commands.

Type show ip interface to find the name of the interface you want to set port forwarding for.

The show ip nat translations command shows you the current port forwards on Router.

Type configure to enter the configuration mode
The command for port forwarding is: ip nat inside source static (TCPorUDP) (YourComputersIP) (PortToForward) interface (name)(PortToForward)

in you case:
ip nat inside source static tcp 5900 interface (name) 5900
ip nat inside source static tcp 5901 interface (name) 5901
replace (name) with the interface name you got from the first command.

Then press CTRL-Z to end the Configure Session
Type copy run start once you tested your settings and press ENTER for the question Destination filename [startup-config]?

I have heard of some commercial tools that let you configure your router via web interface, but they are very expensive (around 1400$).
You can try it out for 14 days. Go here.
If you want to play with a free one, go to Cisco (link) and check it out. (You have to be a member though.)

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

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.

If from going to Bellsouth to Charter you went from DSL to Cable, you may need to change the MTU on the router to match what is set on your modem (it's often different for DSL than for other networks)

Port forward

I am assuming that you are running the camera in a remote place that is NOT your home. (Such as work.)

Do you have access to the on-site location's gateway/router system? If so, make sure that you are logging into the camera's web interface.

Do the following:

1.) Assign a STATIC IP to the camera.
2.) Make sure you know the ISP's DNS information and enter it into the camera's config accordingly. (Typically, you can also use your internet connection gateway device as the DNS server for a device as well. ISP's DNS is more direct, however.)
4.) Enable UPnP in the camera so the device makes itself known to any router on the network so it can dynamically open ports as needed. Video feeds may or may not work without this.
5.) Save your configuration of course.
6.) Login to the on-site router of the network that your camera is connected to.
7.) Go to NAT/Port Forwarding/Whatever it's called in the router...and make an entry for the camera's designated STATIC IP. Make sure that you get the right port number on the entry as well.
8.) Save your configuration.

Optional step: If your ISP is not using a STATIC IP for your internet connection, then use a Dynamic IP site such as to help dynamically adjust for sudden or regular IP changes of your network's internet connection. (That way you can also just type in a URL and port number for your camera instead of memorizing an IP.) Note: This may require you to install software on a local system to update the DynIP site with your current WAN IP. (The camera appears to have the ability to do this on it's own, however. Find the options in the camera's web interace.)

If you have followed these steps in general and adapted to them where should have a working video feed from the camera...

...unless you ARE using a network connection at work for it and your administrators have locked out certain network functions that the camera is requiring.

In that case... your system administrator for assistance. LOL

Good luck!
