9. Viewing Videos from External Networks
If you want to access the Camera from an external network such as the Internet, please
read the following example carefully and follow the steps.
Before you begin, you’ll need to know your Internet IP Address (WAN IP) assigned by
your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and at least one of your ISP’s DNS IP Address.
You can usually find these information on the Status page of your router’s web
configuration utility. If not, you’ll need to contact your ISP for assistance.
Example:
Network A = Location of the Camera
Camera’s IP Address is 192.168.1.240 with Second HTTP Port 81 Enabled.
Network A’s router has an Internet IP Address (WAN IP) of 172.16.1.1 assigned by the
Internet Service Provider (ISP). The ISP’s DNS IP Address is 10.0.0.1 and 10.0.0.2
Network B = Location of the remote client trying to access the Camera.
Step 1 From one of the computers in Network A, open the web browser (Internet
Explorer or Netscape), enter the Camera’s IP Address 192.168.1.240 in the Address
Bar and press Enter.
Step 2 Click on System Administration to enter the Web Configuration Utility.
43
Step 3 Enter admin for both the User name and Password or enter the new User
name and Password that you have previously specified and click OK.
Step 4 Click on Configuration then Network.
44
Step 5 Enter your ISP’s DNS IP Address at the DNS IP Address field.
Step 6 Select Enable for the Second HTTP Port and enter a Port Number for the
Camera (default is 81).
Important: You must assign a port number that’s not in use by any other application on
your network.
Step 7 Click Save to apply the new settings.
Now the Camera with IP Address of 192.168.1.240 has port 81 Open.
Step 8 From one of the computers in Network A, login to the web configuration utility of
Network A’s router.
Step 9 Navigate to the router’s Virtual Server or Port Forwarding page.
Step 10 Enable Forwarding of port 81 to the Camera’s IP Address (192.168.1.240) and
save the new setting.
Step 11 From one of the computers in Network B, open the web browser (Internet
Explorer or Netscape), enter the Internet IP Address (WAN IP) of Network A’s router
(172.16.1.1) followed by a colon : and the port number of the Second HTTP Port (81) in
the Address Bar and press Enter.
Ex. http://172.16.1.1:81
The remote client in Network B should be able to see the images from the Camera now.
