How do enable upnp on belkin router

Since you aren't specific about the model of Belkin router you are using, I can only give you some general advice. This is what is have from MY Belkin router manual. Yours may be different....

Enabling/Disabling UPnP
UPnP (Universal Plug-and-Play) is yet another advanced feature offered by your Belkin Router. It is a technology that offers seamless operation of voice messaging, video messaging, games, and other applications that are UPnP-compliant. Some applications require the Router's firewall to be configured in a specific way to operate properly. This usually requires opening TCP and UDP ports. An application that is UPnP-compliant has the ability to communicate with the Router, basically "telling" the Router which way it needs the firewall configured. The Router ships with the UPnP feature disabled. If you are using any applications that are UPnP-compliant, and wish to take advantage of the UPnP features, you can enable the UPnP feature. Simply select "Enable" in the "UPnP Enabling" section of the "System Settings" page. Click "Apply Changes" to save the change.

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!

Where do i find UPnP on the the fvs318 netgear prosafe VPN firewall router, i cant find it on the main configuration menu

The netgear prosafe VPN router is a high-end component ment for business and corporate use and does not support UPnP

UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) allows programs accessing your router (limewire, utorrent, etc...) to auto configure the security settings on your router which would be harmful to a business/corp. network.

BEFSR81 admin problem when enabled uPNP

I actually FOUND the solution at the linksys community forum site. It's weird, and I quote [kiefmoon], "I beat my head against this issue for the past few months, for the same reason as you: I'd built out a Windows Home Server, which can configure a home router automatically via UPnP, so I happily enabled it on the router, only to be locked out of the web-based configuration page.

Good news though! I just figured out the cause of the issue -- and it's really dumb:
You turn on UPnP on the Passwords tab, right? Well, if you look around on that page, you'll notice that, along with the option to enable UPnP, there are two password fields filled with asterisks. I think most people would assume that if they don't change anything in those fields, then click Apply, that the password has not been changed. And they'd be wrong. I don't know what the password gets changed to at that point, but it's not "admin".

...So the fix is: when you enable UPnP, do yourself a favor and enter a password in those fields (ideally something sronger than "admin" ). That way, you'll actually know what the password is when you get prompted for it."
