I do i get the default username and password for vivotek fd8134 camera


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. step 2 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: 111.222.3.4. 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 yours lf 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. Hope it helps.

I have an edimax IC 7000 pt IP camera, I am having problems getting it to work using port forwarding..I have the latest sw & firmware loaded but seem to be going around in...


You have forward 2 ports.
forward port 80
forward port 443
make sure you have typed in the proper ip address for your camera,
ie. check the admin thingy to get your ip address for the cam.
then check if you can access it locally, then call a friend to see if they can access it remotely.

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.

How to connect to remote camera


To create new Camera Window
  • Click New Camera from the File menu.
  • Camera Setting dialog box appears.
Camera Setting dialog box

Camera Setting dialog box helps you control selected video source. To open the Camera Settings dialog box, select Camera Settings from the File menu.

Set a preview rate in the Preview Frame Rate box. It indicates the number of frames per second in the camera window. The default value is 10 frames per second. This value doesn't interfere with broadcast or record frame rate.


Remote Cameras
Remote camera is another Active WebCam program with enabled Remote Access launched on remote computer. Both programs use UDP protocol to communicate each other. If connection with Remote camera goes through firewall, make sure that the IP address of your computer, local and remote ports are opened on the firewall, and the UDP protocol is enabled.

To connect to Remote Camera
In the Device tab click to select Remote Camera.

Specify the computer address in the IP address box. Don't place the protocol prefix (like http://) in the address, just four digits of IP address delimited by dots, like: 192.168.1.101. You can find out the remote computer IP address by clicking Get Computer IP Address from the Tools menu on the remote computer.

Type port, which is opened on remote computer for remote access in the Remote Port box. This value is specified in the Port box in the Broadcasting | Remote Access properties on the remote computer.

Specify port, which will be used to receive data from remote camera, in the Local Port box. If your network uses firewall, make sure that Local Port and computer's IP address are opened in the firewall. Use the Check the Port Availability button to make sure that this port is not used by another program.

If the remote computer requires authorization, enter user name and password in the appropriate boxes. The authorization could be set in the Broadcasting tab in the Camera Settings window in the Remote Access Additional Settings window on the remote computer.
If the Remember Password check box is checked, the user name and password will be saved among the session parameters.

Cycle through cameras
If you have multiple cameras you can set up a cycler to have the program to change cameras automatically.

To configure the Camera Cycler:
  • Click Camera Settings from the File menu.
  • Select Cycle through cameras to activate cycler.
  • Type cycler interval in seconds.
Select cameras to cycle.

VeoNetwork Web cam


You can view your Veo Observer web cam at home by either of two methods. The first is to use the Observer Studio software that came with the camera. When you configured the camera, you selected a local (private) IP address for each Veo Observer, and set the address specific to each camera. You then put the same IP address into your Observer Studio Software.

Depending on the brand of router you use on your home network, your Veo Observer camera probably has a local (private) IP address in the format 192.168.0.xxx or 192.168.1.xxx where "xxx" is the actual address assigned to your Veo Observer (by you) and configured to display on the LCD window on the side of the Veo Observer.

You may need to log into your router to see which of the two local (private) IP address formats is used. Your router's user manual will show you how.

To view your Veo Observer, just type the exact local (private) IP address in your IE browser. for example, if you assigned address 100 to your cam, you would enter http://192.168.0.100 or 192.168.1.100 into your browser. Veo Observer will display the Language selection screen. Choose the language, then you log in and view your camera.

To view your camera from outside your home using another computer, you use the same method, but you have to substitute your WAN (public) IP address.

You can log into your router and select its STATUS tab to view your WAN (public) IP address. See you router's set up guide if you do not know how to do this.

An easier way to determine your WAN (public) IP address is to visit Gibson Research Shields Up! web page:

https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2

and scroll down to the last paragraph where you will find your WAN (public) IP address.

For example, if this address is 123.456.789.100, then you would enter http://123.456.789.100 on your IE browser. You should see the Language select screen, choose your language, then log in and you are now viewing your Veo Observer from outside your home.

Note: when you view your Veo Observer at home, you probably have a fast frame rate and smooth video motion. When you view your Veo Observer from outside the home, the frame rate is certain to be less, and your moving image quality will be choppy. This is normal, as viewing from outside the home is less efficient and the image suffers. There is nothing you can do to boost the frame rate.

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.

Cannot see cam on viewnetcam


I had the same problem. Even tried turning DMZ on in my router, and specified the camera IP as one in the DMZ. What helped me was using a port scanner (do a google search). I then started trying different things until I saw the port was opened. Once the port was open, I was able to access the camera from the internet, even from within my internal network. It turned out my problem was I have Vonage VOIP phone service and the Vonage router was ahead of my network router. Apparently the Vonage router wasn't allowing internet traffic to the camera. I switched positions of the routers (my wireless router is now first, and my Vonage router is plugged into the wireless router) and everything works fine now.
