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!

Connecting wireless cam with 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: 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.

Trendnet TV-IP501w camera will display images/video on IE at home, but not offsite. This is 64-bit Vista. Turning off the firewall does not help. Offsite, all I get is ip# not found or a timeout message....

1st you need the ip of the camera in your network at home
then you have to go into your router at home at forward either a specific port range of ports or all ports to that Ip address of camera.
you will only be able to access it remotely after all this is done.

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.

Can't view IP cam externally

Follow The Process:-
input the port 5000 and check is it open or not, if it is not open it means you need to check port forwarding in your main internet router/modem.
2. By Default Routers/Modems Http port it 80. so you need to change ip camera http port 80 to 81 and do port forwarding and to view on android devices check another ports in ip camera network settings. so same port forwarding and check in yougetsignal website.

Same Problem. Port frowarding not working. Very confusing.

Virtual Server Name can be anything specified by you. Protocol if not sure TCP/UDP, it is better to select "*" which means both. Both public and private port has to be camera's port. Like in your case it is 50001. LAN server is the local IP address of the Camera given by your router's DHCP or a Static Private IP address f0541ce.jpg

Inability access from other computers

You need to check with your router vendor on how to setup DMZ or Port Forwarding for your DCS-5220 in your router. (For Port Forwarding, please open BOTH HTTP Port and RTSP Port and select the Protocol as TCP for HTTP Port and select the Protocol as TCP/UDP(Both) for RTSP Port.

Camera Not Working Wirelessly

I think maybe the problem is that the cam has already been recognised and given an ip address when you connect via RJ45 cable, but when you try wirelessly, there is a replication of the ip address which is not allowed. Check your router to see what ip address was given to the cam and remove if neccasary so as to re new the cam ipaddress. I would turn off the encryption first to try and get it working, then turn on again.
