Trying to set up remote webcam software

Go to solution

Im trying to set up yawcam so I can view my webcam from anywhere.

Yawcam gives me the address http://109.xxx.xxx.xxx:8081 to view from another computer.

When I try to open this address I am presented with a box that says:


Sign in to 109.xxx.xxx.xxx:8081 "HuaweiHomeGateway"

Name:

Password:

 

I have tried entering my router user+pass but it won't accept it.

I wouldn't think that it's a user+pass for the modem as that is just used to hook up to the cabinet.

 

Yawcam and my router both support UPNP so I shouldnt have to manually forward the port 8081, but nevertheless I have done anyway, and still no luck

I sorted it. I changed the port in Yawcam then I set up a User-defined Application in Port Forwarding>Supported Applications, then assigned that application to my PC in Port Forwarding>Configuration

Groovy, I'm glad to hear it 🙂 I had a bit of an essay written up but I was a tad wide of the mark if all you needed to do was forward ports!
