Re: Who is right? port forwarding ip cams

Each camera must have its own static IP address.

 

eg

Camera 1    192.168.1.10

Camera 2    192.168.1.11

Camera 3     192.168.1.12

 

Incoming ports will need to be mapped to the IP address, not the device name.

 

Port forwarding problems

 

I will not have any time to provide assistance over the next few days, but you should find plenty of help on my website.

Re: Who is right? port forwarding ip cams

You could try this : -

 

Give two cameras the same IP address and set the ports to 80 and 81.

 

I'm assuming you set it from this : - http://i3.tenvis.com/ddns.html

 

then as Keith says use the ddns address followed by the port, like [ freds.ddns:80 ] or  [ freds.ddns:81 ] and you should get camera 1 on 80 and camera 2 on 81.

 

If you swap 81:80 in your router you will only get camera 1 as it will " show " port 80 when asking for port 81 and. of course, show port 80 when asking for port 80.

 

Your HH will need forwarding 80-80 and 81-81 to the single IP address; you cannot forward the same port to different IP addresses eg: port 80 to 192.168.1.44 and port 80 to 192.168.1.45 doesn't work but you can forward two ports to one IP address eg: port 80 to 192.168.1.44 and port 81 to 192.168.1.44

 

If this helps, good, if it doesn't  AW HECK !!

 

Cheers
