OK let me clear port forwarding for you, your router normaly has a firewall (to block of any requests from the internet to exploit any services trough any ports) so if you want access to a resource on the LAN side (side of the router where all the devices and computers are pluged) from the WAN side (side where the ISP's modem is connected for internet) you have to open a port or multiple ports to a specific device IP address (according to device manual).

for exemple:
assuming that the camera has an IP of 192.168.1.110 and it uses port 7777 for resources, in the port forwarding section of the router you ave to open port 7777 and direct it to 192.168.1.110 (save settings and VOILA)

enjoy!

Hello, i setup a IP cam. Create an account on dyndns.org for the IP. But now when i type the given url i am linked to the setup of my Thomson router TG585 v8 What can I do? There is nothing else except...


Hi Sten -- There are several non-intuitive things you have to setup with any router and Dyndns to make this work.

On Dyndns you can setup your static or hardly every changing dynamic Internet (external - provided by your ISP) IP address in your Dyndns account settings (Not the internal NAT IP - 192.168.x.x address of the cam). if it changes more often you need a dyndns client.

On the router you have to setup port forwarding to the internal (NAT address ex:192.168.x.x) address of the camera including the port number -- or you could just create a DMZ (feature of many but not all routers) for the internal IP of the cam.

If you've done the above correctly you might want to check the troubleshooting sections at Dyndns.org located HERE and HERE.

Happy Networking and Thanks for using Fix Ya.

I have a Buffalo WBMR-G54 ADSL Router. The local IP address of the router is 192.168.1.1. My Medion desktop computer connects connects to my Buffalo router using an Ethernet cable. I use the wireless...


> Zone Alarm free firewall and Avast antivirus have been installed on both computers

Your router is already acting as a "firewall" to block "unsolicited" traffic from reaching the computers on your LAN. So, unless you use Zone Alarm to block "outgoing" connections
(such as a computer-virus would try to make when "calling-home", there's little benefit
to using the Zone Alarm software.

> If I use Internet explorer to connect to http://myname.dyndns.org, Internet Explorer does connect successfully to the network. However, it invites me to enter the username and password for my Buffalo WBMR-G54 router - not for the storage drive.

While you are "forwarding" TCP port 21, you are not "forwarding" TCP port 80 (as used by the 'http://' protocol). So, when you connect from the Internet to your "public" IP-address, it is the router that responds, rather than one of your computers inside your LAN.

IMHO, it is "bad" that your router's web-interface is "exposed" to attacks from the Internet.
Either "forward" TCP port 80, or configure the router to use a _different_ port number for "remote management".

> If I enter the Router user name and password, that allows me to access the Router menus via the Internet, which confirms that my account at DynDns has translated the IP address successfully.

Correct. Hopefully, you're the only one who knows the correct username/password, and there is nobody that is doing "brute-force" attacks on your router, trying to login to "hijack" your router.

> if I use Internet Explorer or FileZilla to access ftp://myname.dyndns.org, I cannot connect to the router

Correct. The 'ftp://' protocol uses TCP port 21, which the router is "forwarding" to one of the computers on your LAN.

> or the storage drive - so I cannot access any of my files remotely.
> FileZilla reports -Status: Resolving address of bob1944.dyndns.org
> Status: Connecting to 78.144.xxx.xxx:21...
> Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message

So far, so good.

Is FileZilla expecting a "specific" content in that "welcome" message, or will "any" response be "close-enough" ?

On a computer on the Internet, open a command-line prompt:

Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Enter FTP bob1944.dyndns.org
Press Enter
Do you get a "connecting" message?
Do you get a "connected" message?
Do you see the "welcome" message?

Note that the FTP protocol usually uses _two_ ports for File Transfer:

* port 21 for "control" (sending/receiving commands/responses)
* a "random" port for "data" transfers (including directory-listings)

It's this "random" port that your router is not forwarding.

However, some FTP-clients (probably including FileZilla) and some FTP-servers
support "passive" mode, where both the "control" and the "data" connections "share" port 21.

So, configure FileZilla to use "passive" mode, and _hope_ that your FTP-server supports "passive" mode.

How to watch IP Camera on internet by using DSL-2640T??


let me give you few suggestions and then you can take it from there.

firstly IP camera is just what its name says..it needs a fixed IP address it may be local as in your lan where it is working or a IP address from ISP.
Now when you connect it behind router... it is essentially a camera connected to LAN.
now the problem is DYNDNS.com will give access to your router since that is connected to dynamic IP addressing. However Ip camera is behind router and to access it you need to open proper protocol and port in router .consult your router manual for doing that.

with your current setup that is the only solution. however you can connect Ip camera directly to ISP line and then use dyndns as in case of router. though i dont know how feasible that will be for you.you have not mentioned IP camera model so cant help with specific details.

I have a actiontec gt704wg trying to connect another router behind it .... iam not able to ...


your other router has to have the following settings:

1) it's IP must be on the same subnet as your actiontec. The subnet is the "third" number in the ip address. So if your actiontec has ip of 192.168.1.0, your other router must have IP of 192.168.1.XXX where xxx is some number other than 0.

2) the dhcp server of your other router must be turned off

3) you must run a lan cable from a lan port on the actiontec to a lan port on the other router. Note that the internet/wan ports are NOT used on either router for the purpose of daisy-chaining routers together.

Port forwarding web server


Use the Public IP of the router or go to http://whatismyip.com then use that IP address on your browser

i.e http://24.x.x.x:80

Or go to http://portforward.com and click on guides and then port forwarding. Then choose the brand and model of your router and then follow the steps on that page.

Hope this helps, gambatte!!

I can't open a port to the internet from my Router


Yeah, it's pretty simple actually, if you have verizon. Connect to your modem using this IP: http://192.168.1.1
Then use the username "admin" and password "password1". It may look like it's repeating each letter you're typing so that the password looks much long, but that's just the router being weird.
Finally, go to "Firewall settings" then click yes, click port forwarding on the left, then "add".
Select your computer from the drop down. Then select TCP as the protocol and "any" for source ports then whatever port you want forwarded for destination ports (you can do a range of ports if you want).
Lastly, hit "Apply" and after a quick refresh, your port should be forwarded.
DONE!

Port Forwarding for Apache Server


Hi Robmoll,
Let's get a little bit more in detail. I'm doing the same exact thing you are trying to do with a D-Link DI-624 and I'm using NO-IP instead of DynDNS. I'd like to ask you a question, if I may, what are you actually seeing now using port 80 and how did you disable it? Can you connect another PC to the same router (making a small Home Network) and test locally your Apache and eventually your web-page by typing something like this "http://192.168.0.101/"? Are you already able to see your router from the "outside" trough port 8080? Are you specifying your "private" IP in the port forwarding setting of your router? Do you mind showing a snapshot of your port forwarding settings? Here is mine; you see two different IP's because there are two PC connected.

Regards,
GiBi
