Good question. It is easy to change the port if you can actually log on to the camera. (Setup/Network(IPv4)/Connection Mode. Then choose either static or DHCP and change the port number.However, I suspect you are asking this because the office firewall will not allow you to connect to the device. Thats a problem, because this camera is a web server and you need to access it through its IP address to change its address!! I have hit this problem with another web server camera and I was able to use port 8080 in that case. What I did was set up the camera at home on my router and locked in the new port number and then used DHCP to let the work network assign a different IP address. However, many network administrators block whole ranges of ports. I presume you have tried simple Port 80? You may need to ask your network Admin what ports are open. There will always be some. I have encountered a problem recently with Viewnetcam and my IP provider...Verizon... which is blocking a whole range of incoming port numbers because their terms of service are that you cannot operate a web server on your residential network so they block all traffic that is trying to access it.

How to configure the UPNP in panasonic camera?If we need access from the internet should we register in viewnet.com?


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!

How to record transmission of BL-C131


Hi,

To view over the internet,
1. setup a wifi with internet active.
2. Insert the CD which came with the cam into your laptop which is connected to the wifi as well. Follow instructions. It is simple. If you need help, click here.
3. Make a new DDNS account if you don't have a static public ip (if you don't know what that is, you dont have one).

You are ready to go.

BL-C131 port forwarding.


So you've configured port forwarding on the router. Do you have any anti-virus applications installed or have your set an exclusion in Windows firewall?

BL-C131 died during firmware upgrade


Seems to be a common problem for these cameras even without doing firmware upgrade. The finnish importer Kaukomarkkinat Oy will not acknowledge it and will only sell new ones to customers complaining about this.

When i switch to wireless mode, camera stays in;privacy mode


Unfortunately the electronic operating instructions are not available from the support website and have to be purchased from Panasonic.
I think it will be a case of re-setting the camera to factory settings and re-program the webcam again
