Look at the brand of router and model router and go to their web site. Down load / read the steps to log in to your router. Enter the URL link or IP , then user name and password. Look through the setup for a section that is labeled port forwarding. I've worked with several home consumer routers and their all web based and look pretty strange at first but study it and your see how to tell the router to forward a port to a specific IP. But that will only work it your computer always connects with the same IP on the router and that you always use that same computer to see your camera. Routers by default are DHCP and assign you an IP at random when you connect. Port forwarding would require you to also setup your computer to static IP, Meaning you MAC address would always be assigned the same IP, so the port forwarding would always be able to forward to the correct IP. Sounds much harder than it is. Your question sounds like you want to ensure the camera ip/port is passing through the router, so your home computer can see the video. Thats how you could forward a port to something. But if your wanting to see your camera from anywhere on the web then you'll want to make sure your router isn't blocking that port to the open WAN (wide area network). But I'd check your firewall on your computer FIRST>. Thats all a firewalls is for. Try connecting to your camera with your firewall / anti-virus software off for a test first. If it works then you need to be setting up your firewall on your computer and not your router. Firewall is usually part of your anti virus software and or, part of windows. Go to control panel, look for the security shield icon on XP and disable the firewall. You'll get some errors, but this is just for a test. I can't remember exactly the step for windows xp, but again look for help on your operation system of google it. Also don't forget about the lights on your router. Use them to help troubleshot. Went you plug the camera in, does the activity light come on? You can also have a bad cable...... good luck!

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!

I need to access a remote LAN through the internet. our church office is on verizon DSL with a westell 7500 modem. I have security camera's attached through an Ethernet cable. I need to be able to use...


You need to install a software that will manage your LAN's video recording. That software should work fine within your LAN and is usually provided with the Video Capture Cards where your cameras are connected. This software should have a web portal for you to access via internet utilizing your forwarded port. Thus, you must tell your video software to use your forwarded port for internet viewing. Without this web portal, you can't access your remote LAN videos via internet.

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?

Network routing problem with Axis Camera's


They would need to be on different TCP or UDP port numbers ... in order to access them from the Internet. I'm guestimating that on the LAN you can access all of them because they are on different RFC1918 IP Addresses (e.g. 192.168.1.10, 20, 30) but same port number (e.g. port 80 for web.)

Once you hop through NAT to get to the Internet you now only have one IP Address. The real Internet IP Address. So now you have to have different port numbers for 2 or more cameras. For example use:

#1 port 80
#2 port 8080
#3 port 8081
#4 port 8082

How about that?

And you will have to forward each of those ports to the correct ip address for the correct camera.

Not able to use remote viewing via no-ip


I had the same exact issue. I was using dyndns to connect, but i found out that when you login in the host, dont put your local ip address of the dvr, but instead put the internet ip address of your network. so instead of 192.168.0.5 for your local put the 89.137.24.124 for the internet address. That fixed my issue. Hope that works for you. Just make sure your username and password is right and the port is set up correct in your router to forward to the local ip of the dvr.

Hi i have a satellite internet provider and im trying to set up my linksys broadband router so i can hook up my xbox 360 my problem is everytime i hook it up im getting no internet connection can you tell...


hi,
there are two things to be addressed in this case.firstly you have a satellite internet provider which can create consistency issue.then when you connect a xbox to router you need to do a port forwading on linksys router(port forwarding=opening ports in router so your xbox can communicate freely).in order to do the port forwarding you have to log onto router user interface.then go to applications and gaming tab,where you can do the port forwarding.
but before doing so,you have to contact microsoft to know the ip address assigned to the xbox and the ports(numbers) to be opened.
thank you.

Port forwarding


try to use another port number aside from 8080, like 3000 or 5000. make sure that the ip address set on the router is the ip address of your camera (note: it should be set to static).

hope this'll help you

make wsure that that port 1024 is assigned to the ip address of the camera under port forwarding, you can also try changing the remote port, try 5000 and above, if it still does not work try DMZ.
you can always check if port 1024 is open on your router by performing a port scan through the net, you can get a free port scanner on this site..
