2 Access the IP Camera
This chapter explains how to access the camera through browser and RT1P player.
2.1 Access the Camera in LAN
This camera supports HTTP and HTTP1 protocols, you can access the camera by two ways.
(1) http:// LAN IP + HTTP Port NO.
The default HTTP port no is 88. Double click the IP Camera Tool icon to run, and it should find the camera’s IP
address automatically after you plug in the network cable.
Figure t.1
Double click the IP address of the camera; your default browser will open to the camera login page.

www.foscam.us
(2) https:// LAN IP + HTTPS Port NO.
The default Https port NO is 443. You can use the url to access the camera: https:// LAN IP + HTTP1 port.
Go to Settings - Network - Port panel, you can see and change the http and https port NO.
Figure t.t
2.2 Access the Camera in WAN
2.2.1 Static IP Addresses
Users who have static IP addresses do not need to set DDN1 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 t.3
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.t8.t54:85
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
1uccessful” on the Device 1tatus page.
t)
Do port (HTTP port and Media port) forwarding manually.
If your router has a Virtual 1erver, 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 DDN1 service
settings to view it remotely.
2.2.2 Iynamic IP Addresses
DDN1 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 the HTTP Port NO.?
Default HTTP Port is 88
All cameras have the default HTTP port of 88. For example, if the LAN IP link of the camera is
http://19t.168.1.110:88, this means that the camera’s HTTP port is 88. You can change port 88 to another port
if you’d like such as t000 or 8090, which will not be conflict with other existing ports like t5, t1,10000.Here you
can set the port no. between 1 and 65535.
Change the default http no.88 to another one.
How to assign a different HTTP Port No. and fixed the LAN IP of the camera by the IP
Camera Tool?
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
t.4 and t.5.
Select which camera
you’d like to change the
port for, and right click
Figure t.4
Modify the Http Port.
Enter the Username and
password, click OK.

www.foscam.us
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 t000, so we see http://19t.168.1.110:t000 in IP Camera Tool. Also, the LAN IP address is
now fixed at a static IP address of http://19t.168.1.110:t000. 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!
Figure t.6
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://192.168.1.110:88
Step 1: Login to the router, and go to your router’s port forwarding or port triggering menu. 1ometimes this is
also under the name of Virtual 1erver 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 “1ingle 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 1ubmit to save your settings:

www.foscam.us
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
Figure t.7
First method :
Use the embedded DDN1 to access the camera via the Internet
Each Foscam camera has an embedded unique DDN1 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 1ettings at the top, click “Network” on the
left, then click “DDN1” to get to the DDN1 settings page. Here you can see the unique domain name of your
camera.
Figure t.8
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 88 for example, the URL link to access the camera via
the Internet would be http:// test09.myfoscam.org:88.
Second method :
Use the Third party DDN1 to access the camera via the Internet
Step 1 Please go to the third party DDN1 website(such as www.no-ip.com) to create a free hostname.
Step 2 DO DDN1 1ervice 1ettings within the Camera
Please set DDN1 1ettings within the camera by hostname, a user name and password you’ve got from
Foscam Iigital Technologies
Telephone: 1-800-930-0949

www.foscam.us
www.no-ip.com
Take hostname ycxgwp.no-ip.info, user name foscam, password foscamt01t for example.
Firstly, goes to option of DDN1 1ettings on the administrator panel.
1econdly, select No-Ip as a server.
Thirdly, fill foscam as DDN1 user, fill password foscamt01t as DDN1 password, fill ycxgwp.no-ip.info as
DDN1 domain and server URL, Then click save to make effect. The camera will restart and to take the DDN1
settings effective.
Fourthly, after the restart, login the camera, and go to option of Device 1tatus on the administrator panel, and
check if the DDN1 status is successful.
If failed, please double check if you have input the correct hostname, user name, and password, and try to
redo the settings.
NOTE:
If you have set Third Party DDN1 successfully ,the Foscam Domain Name will be invalid. The Third Party
DDN1 and the Foscam Domain Name cannot work at the same time, the last time you configured will take
effect.

2) 720P/ VGA
There are two resolutions, the bigger one is 7t0P, and the smaller one (VGA) is 640x480 pixels. The bigger the
resolution, the better of the image quality is. If you are accessing the camera via internet and want to get more
fluent video streaming, please select resolution VGA.
3) Maximum frame rate
When the video format is 50Hz, the maximum frame rate is t5 fps. When the video format is 60Hz, the
maximum frame rate is 30 fps. You should lower frame rate when the bandwidth is limited. Normally, when the
frame rate above 15, you can achieve fluently video.
4) Bit rate
Generally speaking, the larger the bit rate is, the clearer video will become. But the bit rate configuration should
combine well with the network bandwidth. When the bandwidth is very narrow, and bit rate is large, that will
lead to video can not play well.
You can reset the stream type on Settings-> Video-> Video Settings panel.

now fixed at a static IP address of http://19t.168.1.110:t000 . 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!

Bit rate: Generally speaking, the larger the bit rate is, the clearer video will become. But the bit rate
configuration should combine well with the network bandwidth. When the bandwidth is very narrow, and bit rate
is large, that will lead to video can not play well.
Frame rate: Note that a larger frame size takes up more bandwidth. When the video format is 50Hz, the
maximum frame rate is t5 fps. When the video format is 60Hz, the maximum frame rate is 30 fps. You should
lower frame rate when the bandwidth is limited. Normally, when the frame rate above 15, you can achieve
fluently video.
Key Frame Interval: The time between last key frame and next key frame. The shorter the duration, the more
likely you will get a better video quality, but at the cost of higher network bandwidth consumption.
Variable Bitrate: The two options are Yes and NO. 1elect Yes the bit rate is variable, and the highest value
isn't higher than Bit Rate Value (tMbps). 1elect NO and the bit rate is constant with Bit Rate Value (tMbps).
