Re: Inability access from other computers

One of the problems of viewing the cam from an office is your office firewall. Make sure that the ports you are using are open in your office network.

Once you have chosen the ports to use, do the following:
1. Change the ports in your camera setup to use the new ports that you have selected.
2. Configure port forwarding for HTTP and RTSP in your router and modem

If you have multiple cameras, you must use a different port number for each camera AND configure port forwarding for each camera

Re: 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.

Welcome to Fixya

Try to uinstall and reinstall the software. Ping the camera if you are getting a reply. Reset the camera by pressing the small hole on the side. If everything is already done then same thing occur then you have a defective camera.

Settings on Linksys router for the DCS 5220 to view remotely and settings on Securicam

Configuring your Linksys router for remote desktop is a task that's needed before you can access your computer from outside the network. If you plan to connect to your remote desktop machine from the Internet, you need to configure the router to allow traffic to the PC. Linksys is a common router used on home networks for wireless and LAN configurations. Configuring your router to allow port forwarding to a remote desktop only takes a few steps through the graphical user interface.
  1. tep 1 Open your browser window and type the IP address of the router in your address bar. This opens a window for the username and password needed for access to configure the router.
  2. Step 2 Click the "Applications and Gaming" tab on the opening screen. This opens a window with a list of ports of which you can open for access on your network.
  3. Step 3 Type "Remote Desktop" in the application textbox.
  4. Step 4 Enter "3389" in the "Start" and "Stop" port ranges. This port number is specific to the remote desktop application.
  5. Step 5 Leave the value of "Both" in the protocol listbox.
  6. Step 6 Type the IP address of the internal machine on your network. The IP address is the machine running remote desktop. When traffic from the Internet reaches the router, it forwards the request to this IP address.
  7. Step 7 Check the "Enabled" checkbox and click "Save Settings."
  8. Step 8 Close the browser window.

Check your Windows Defender Firewall.

Make sure that the software you are using to view the camera has its program configured to go through the firewall. You can set all ports open if you just want it to work or if you are concerned about security, just select the ports for HTTP and RTSP.

Wireless installation for DCS-5220

Plug in the network cable first and make sure the following settings are correct:

1. SSID is the same and set to broadcast
2. You are using the same WPA AES password as the router (or WEP password if you are using WEP)
3. The wireless antennae is connected
4. The camera is located not to far from the router

After that, remove the network cable and restart your camera.

Dcs 5300 not acessin ie 7 get s http 400 error

Actually, the problem itself is not actually Silverlight, it is simply that the D-Link cameras appear to have a buffer overflow or some sort of problem with a long header. Specifically when the HTTP Header "Accept" gets too long, the device errors out and returns a 400 error. It just seems to be that Silverlight extends this header to a point where you can't use it. Even without Silverlight you could see this response.

If you want to see/modify your HTTP Header "Accept" items, simply go to the following in the registry:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Accepted Documents

I simply removed all of my office apps cause I really don't care to view them in my browser anyhow.

Good luck!
