    What's the brand of your router and its model number? Is the camera connecting wirelessly? Is it accessible on the local network? And what is it's IP address?

First you have to download Skype or other messenger program and install it. Then use the info below to setup the Audio & Video.

Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

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.

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?

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.

What is the Port Number to setup in my 2Wire modem portforwarding


I assume your intention is to view the cam remotely.

You only need to forward the following:
HTTP Port - TCP
RTSP Port - TCP and UDP

You may also optionally forward the other ports if you want to view your videos on a mobile

Networking the intellinet 503181


Hello,
There are a couple things to check. Make certain that you have port forwarding enabled for port 80/80 to the IP address of the camera. Make certain that you have port forward for port 8080/0 to the IP address of the camera. Find your IP address for your Internet connection - you can go to ipchicken.com and it will display your IP address for you. Then open your browser, type in your Internet IP address on the address line and hit enter. That should bring up the guest log in window and you can log in to view the video stream. If you want to log in to the camera console to change configurations, just type the camera user name and password instead of the guest user name and log in.
Hope this helps!
