5. Remote Access Setup
We have been able to access the camera within the LAN network, and have set up a wireless
connection, but how do we access the camera via WAN or from outside networks through the
internet?
We have to set up Remote Access via Port Forwarding before we can access the camera
outside of our own local area network.
What is the HTTP Port and Media Port, how do we change them?
This camera supports HTTP Port and Media Port. The Media port is used to view the camera’s video
stream, HTTP Port is used to access the camera remotely. If you want to access the camera and
view the video, the Media Port and the HTTP Port must both be configured correctly.
1) Default HTTP Port is 88 / Default Media Port is 888
HTTP Port:
All cameras have the default HTTP port of 88. For example, if the LAN IP link of the
camera is http://192.168.8.102:88, this means that the camera’s HTTP port is 88. You can change
port 88 to another port if you’d like such as 2000 or 8090, which will not be conflict with other existing
ports like 25, 21.Here you can set the port no. between 1 and 65535.
Media Port: When you login to the camera, you can see the Media Port number on the login
screen. The default Media Port number is 888. Like HTTP Port, you can change this to anything
between 1 and 65535.
Note: The HTTP Port and Media Port must be different; you won’t be able to access the camera
otherwise.
2) How do we assign a different HTTP port and a static LAN IP address?
Step 1: Open the IP Camera Tool, select the camera you would like to change the port of, right click
on the IP address, and click on ”Network Configuration”, this brings up the network configuration box
as shown in Figure 2.4 and 2.5.
www.foscam.com

FI9801W Quick Installation Guide
Select which camera
you’d like to change the
port for, and right click
Figure 2.4 – Click on Network Configuration
Modify the Http Port.
Enter the Username and
password, click OK.
Figure 2.5 – Changing the port in IP Camera Tool.
Step 2: Enter the username and password of the Administrator (default username is admin with a
blank password), and click “OK” to apply changes.
Step 3: Wait around 10 seconds, you’ll see that the camera’s LAN IP address has changed. In our
example it was changed to 2000, so we see http://192.168.8.102:2000 in IP Camera Tool. Also, the
LAN IP address is now fixed at a static IP address of http://192.168.8.102:2000. This IP address will
not change even if the camera is powered off and back on, the camera will remain on this LAN IP
address. This is very important that a static LAN IP address is set, or you may have problems later
with remote access and seeing the camera remotely if the camera loses power and reconnects on a
different LAN IP address. Make sure you set a static LAN IP address!

How do we assign a different Media Port for the camera?
Login to the camera; then click on Settings at the top, then click Network on the left side. Next, click
the Port section.
Figure 2.7 – The Port Settings page.
This page allows you to change the Media port and HTTP port, however, remember that the two
ports need to be different.
Once you change the Media port, click save to save the settings, you may need to wait about 10
seconds for the information to be updated.
Setting up Remote Access
Firstly, please check to see if your ISP (Internet Service Provider) provides a Static WAN IP address
service or a Dynamic WAN IP address service. This guide has been divided into two different
sections of setting up remote access, one for Static IP addresses and one for Dynamic IP addresses.
If your ISP provides a Static WAN IP Address please go to Chapter 5.1 (Page 12).
If your ISP provides Dynamic WAN IP Address please go to Chapter 5.2 directly (Page 13).
www.foscam.com

FI9801W Quick Installation Guide
5.1 Static IP Addresses
Users who have static IP addresses do not need to set DDNS service settings for remote access.
When you have finished connecting the camera using the LAN IP address and port forwarding, you
can access the camera directly from the Internet using the WAN IP address and port number.
How to Obtain the WAN IP address from a public website
To obtain your WAN IP address, enter the following URL in your browser:
http://www.whatismyip.com.The webpage at this address will show you the current WAN IP.
Figure 2.7 – This is your WAN IP address (external IP address).
Access your IP Camera from the Internet
You can access the IP Camera from the Internet (remote access). Enter the WAN IP address and
port number in your standard browser. For example, you would enter http:// 183.37.28.254:85
Note
Make sure port forwarding is successful. You can do port forwarding two ways.
1) Login to your router to enable the “UPNP” function. You can then login to the camera as
administrator, choose Network, and then choose UPnP to enable UPnP. Make sure that the status
of UPnP reads “UPnP Successful” on the Device Status page.
2) Do port (HTTP port and Media port) forwarding manually. (See Figure 2.8 for further details)
If your router has a Virtual Server, it can do port forwarding. Add the camera’s LAN IP and port which
you had set earlier to your router’s port forwarding settings.
Note: If you plug the camera into a router, it will have a dynamic IP address and you need to set
DDNS service settings to view it remotely.
www.foscam.com
- 12 -
FI9801W Quick Installation Guide
5.2 Dynamic IP Addresses
DDNS is a service that allows your IP Camera, especially when assigned with a dynamic IP address,
to have a fixed host and domain name. This means that even though your WAN IP address is
constantly changing, you will have a fixed hostname you can use to access your cameras at all times.
You can access the camera directly from the Internet using the hostname and port number.
What is Port forwarding?
If you have never done port forwarding before, you can open and view the following link to
understand the basic concept. Port forwarding allows for outside connections to access a specific
device on your network from anywhere in the world. Every router automatically blocks any incoming
connections for safety purposes. Using port forwarding, you are telling your router to allow a
connection through a certain port (you can think of it as a gateway) into your router. You set this port
to a specific device, in our case an IP Camera, so it can be accessed from anywhere in the world.
Click this link to learn more about port forwarding: http://portforward.com/help/portforwarding.htm
How do we configure Port Forwarding?
For this section, we will be using an example:
Let’s say the camera’s LAN IP address is http://192.168.8.100:2000, and the Media Port is
9200.
Step 1: Login to the router, and go to your router’s port forwarding or port triggering menu.
Sometimes this is also under the name of Virtual Server or NAT.
Using the Linksys brand router as an example, we would log into the router, and go to the
Applications & Gaming menu. We would then click on the “Single Port Forwarding”
sub-menu.
Step 2: Create a new column using the LAN IP address & HTTP Port of the camera within the router
as shown below, then push OK or Submit to save your settings:
www.foscam.com
- 13 -
FI9801W Quick Installation Guide
Fill the HTTP Port of the
camera in the columns of
External Port and Internal
Port. Example: 2000
Fill in this section with the
LAN IP of the camera; we
would enter “100” for our
example.
Assign a name for the
port forward setting here
Fill the Media Port of the camera in
the columns of External Port and
Internal Port. Example: 9200
Figure 2.8 - Port forwarding in a Linksys Router
Use the embedded DDNS to access the camera via the Internet
Each Foscam camera has an embedded unique DDNS domain name, the format of this domain
name is xxxxxx.myfoscam.org. On the bottom of the camera, you can see the domain name sticker
with this information on it.
For example, we can use test09.myfoscam.org. In the camera, click Settings at the top, click
“Network” on the left, then click “DDNS” to get to the DDNS settings page. Here you can see the
unique domain name of your camera.
Figure 2.9 – DDNS Settings page
Now you can use “http://Domain name + HTTP Port” to access the camera via the Internet.
Take hostname test09.myfoscam.org and HTTP Port of 2000 for example, the URL link to access
the camera via the Internet would be http:// test09.myfoscam.org:2000.
