Take hostname ycxgwp.no-ip.info, user name foscam, password foscam2012 for example.
Firstly, goes to option of DDNS Service Settings on the administrator panel.
Secondly, disable the Manufacturer’s domain name and select No-Ip as a server in the Third
Party DDNS.
Thirdly, fill foscam as DDNS user, fill password foscam2012 as DDNS password, fill
ycxgwp.no-ip.info as DDNS domain and server URL, Then click save to make effect. The
camera will restart and to take the DDNS settings effective.
Fourthly, after the restart, login the camera, and go to option of Device Status on the
administrator panel, and check if the DDNS 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
The Third Party DDNS and the Manufacturer’s Domain Name cannot work at the same time.
If you have set Third Party DDNS and meanwhile you enabled the Foscam Domain Name, the
Third Party DDNS will take effect.
② Do port forwarding within the router
Example: The camera’s LAN IP address is http://192.168.1.35:88 ,
Firstly, login the router, goes to the menu of Port Forwarding or Port Trigger (or named Virtue
Server on some brands of router). Take Linksys brand router as an example, Login the
router, and goes to Applications & Gaming->Single Port Forwarding.
Secondly, Create a new column by LAN IP address & HTTP Port No. of the camera within the
router showed as below.

③ Use domain name to access the camera via internet
After the port forwarding is finished, you can use the domain name+ http no. to access the
camera via internet. Take hostname ycxgwp.no-ip.info and http no. 88for example, the
accessing link of the camera via internet would be http:// ycxgwp.no-ip.info:88

your computer.
4.1.3 No Pictures Problems
The video streaming is transmitted by the ActiveX controller. If ActiveX controller isn’t installed
correctly you will see no video image. There are two ways to resolve this problem:
1) Re-install “Equipment Search Tool” and activeX control(recommendable).
2) Download ActiveX controller and set security setting of IE: IE browser  Tool  Internet
ProperSecurityCustom LevelActiveX control and Plug-ins. The first three options should
be set to be “Enable”, The ActiveX programs read by the computer will be stored. As follows:

4.1.4 Can’t access IP camera on internet
Possible reasons why camera is not accessible on the internet:
1 ActiveX controller is not installed correctly
2 The port which the camera uses is blocked by a Firewall or Anti-virus software, try changing
to another port number. (Figure 5.2)
3 Port forwarding is not successful (Figure 3.26)
Double check these settings and make sure they are correct.
4.1.5 Equipment Search Tool could not find camera’s IP
Verify that the network cable securely fastened to the camera.
Make sure DHCP is enabled on your router, don’t enable MAC address filter.
Make sure that the firewall or anti-virus software does not block the camera. You can add the
camera as a trusted site on your firewall or anti-virus software.
4.1.6 UPnP always failed
UPnP only contains port forwarding in our recent software. Sometimes, it may fail to port
forwarding automatically because of the firewall or anti-virus software. It may also be due to the
router’s security settings. We recommend manually configuring port forwarding. You can view
your camera on internet successfully after you do port forwarding manually in your router.
4.1.7 Couldn’t find the shortcut on the desktop after install
Equipment Search Tool
If you use Windows7 or Vista and the shortcut is missing after installing the Equipment Search
Tool, check the path of the IP Camera program.
For example, as it was pointing to C:\Windows\System32\IPCamera.exe.
Please fix this by pointing the shortcut to the correct path
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\IPCamera.exe. After this you could use the shortcut without any
problems.
4.1.8 I can’t change the record path
When you use Windows7 or Vista, you may be not able to change the record path for the
security settings of computer. Please add the camera as a trusted site to resolve this issue. The
step are

domain name to fill in the host checkbox, not camera’s LAN IP. (for more details: How to add
cameras in WAN)
4.1.11 Only see black screen or undefined characters when using
remote login
If you could access the login page remotely, this indicates that your DDNS settings are correct. If
you are unable to see live video but only some undefined characters, this may be due to internet
speed issues.
