Question about Home Security
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.
