Tried all that. Doesn't seem to want to connect through PPnP which is required.
Is this a brand new camera? Let's try a factory reset to see if it detects the camera after that. With the camera powered on...push on the green button underneath for about 10-15 seconds.
Then after it resets, see if the software can detect it.
I can read the camera locally on my computer but can't get the system to get it remotely.I'm using viewwebcam.com. It doesn't seem to be able to get through the routers firewall. I used Port Forwarding program but that didn'r work.
Ah...so your problem is getting to connect the camera from the internet? From your description, it sounded like you couldn't connect to the camera at all.
Please confirm that you are only needing to connect the camera to the internet for remote access at this point.
let's double check...goto start => in the search bar, type network and sharing => click on network and sharing center that shows up in the search
Then click on change adapter settings on the left side ... then double click on your network adapter ... then click details ... look for your ipv4 default gateway...report that back to me.
ok..great...now click on this url to access the router admin page:
you'll need the admin login and password...it may be listed on the side of the router if you don't know what it is. Let me know once you've logged in.
You'll also need to know the ip address of the camera, so have that handy as well.
great...now click on the settings tab at the top...then click on firewall.
Under select a computer ... choose your ip camera if listed ... if not, enter the ip address of it.
Then at the bottom click on add new a user defined application
Under application name, call it IP camera
Leave protocol on TCP
Under port range ... you want 80 to 80
Leave protocol timeout blank
Leave map to host blank
Under application type, choose web or http
Then click back
After that...look for IP camera in the list of applications and click add
AFter that, save
Let me know when done.
Now click here:
Right down your IP address that it reports on the website...report that back to me.
