Question about Toshiba IK-WB11A Network Camera
I can view the camera on the local area netword but not the public network. I have the camera http set to port 5631 and 5631 forwarded to the camera. 5631 is not blocked by the isp or the router.
Some DSL lines from the telco will not allow "loopback". Lets say you get an IP of 22.214.171.124 from your DSL connection (may it be dynamic or static). Any computers that are within the same network range of 68.10.10..xx will NOT be able to connect to you. It simplify the explanation, the DSLAM acts like a switch (not a hub) and any traffic behind it is blocked form circulating back. Several times I have customers with offices in different locations, but on the same side of the DSLAM. I had to get the telco change the assigned IP addresses for them to connect to each other. Here at home, I can see my cameras on my LAN, but when I try to see them at my DSL IP, I can't...so I use my cellphone to connect to the internet and then to my home DSL IP address.

This is a common mistake.. ya CANNOT "See" a camera or such, as this, on the "Public" side of things, 'cause ya not... So, UNLESS you go to ANOTHER LOCATION and try, well OK.... & THEN you should be able to View ya camera, if all is well... OR get a 3rd party to check from their PC from their location... The fact ya can see it on ya local network should be encouraging.

Tips for a great answer:
Before You Start
Telnet into the Netopia router's Main Menu at 192.168.1.1 (if using the default IP setting). If your network has a different IP addressing scheme, modify this accordingly. Click Here! for instructions on using telnet and Hyperterminal (serial connection).
Login with the user name and password. The Superuser login is required to save changes. If you are unsure of this, contact your network administrator.
Don't forget to press the Enter key to save any entries. Hitting the back space, delete or tab without first hitting enter will undo any changes.
The Esc key will take you back towards the main menu screen.
Once you have completed your configuration, you should reboot the Netopia to save and apply your changes.

Server List Configuration
You have now configured your router for TCP/UDP port forwarding. If you have a switched connection (ISDN or Analog), you will need to either disconnect and reconnect your Internet connection, or restart your router for the Nat Server List changes to take effect. If you wish to filter traffic for your static IP mappings, please see the following Netopia Technote:
