Access the IP Camera over Internet

1,584 Recognized Expert Top Contributor

I need a big favour from you guys.Need to know how to set up a IP camera to access that using Internet.

Before I start need to say, I am not from the same stream as you guys. Just a web application developer.

My Company purchased some IP cameras and currently It has set on our LAN and all can access through browser(IE) over LAN.

Now we need to access those IP camera(s) over Internet.

we have a ADSL connection from our ISP and its not a (Static IP address How ever)

Is it possible to Access this IP camera(s) over Internet with the Current resources we have. If yes plase say how, If not what we need to fly with this thing?

Since it appears that outsiders (or anybody not on the same node as you) can see the camera, I believe it is safe to assume that your ISP doesn't block port 80 traffic. Some ISPs (in attempt to get more money out of you, I'm sure) block port 80 to prevent people from running their own webserver.

What I believe is happening is that the router is doing a kind of "loopback" in response to port 80 traffic from within its collision domain. In other words, NAT isn't correctly parsed by the router to a server when both you and the server are behind the router.

Can you still get to the camera's setup via its LAN IP? If so, I believe everything is working (with caveats). Those outside of your network node can view the camera through the WAN address, and those behind the router can view it through its LAN address. It could be that the router fouls up the network address translation for LAN-to-WAN-back to-LAN traffic.

You could (as a cheat) edit the HOSTs file or change a local DNS entry to redirect http://124.43.xxx.xxx to for those computers behind the router to get around the NAT issue.

I'm still trying to find out if it could be anything else.

Here are the Video SettingS on my IP cam, please go through it to find out, if something is there that i should use to enhance the video streaming to the Internet users.currently it is some what slow over our ADSL line(for LAN its a absolutely fine LOL).

I'll Bold the all Options here there at web configurator panel.
Currently Selected values in italic bold

As I can remember,I have used port 6001-6005 only.do we have to use the other ports also in the virtual server settings.?

You could (as a cheat) edit the HOSTs file or change a local DNS entry to redirect http://124.43.xxx.xxx to for those computers behind the router to get around the NAT issue.
And its sorry to say that I didn't get this yet!

I'd like to reopen the thread, because here we have some issues that we couldn't get through with a solution yet.

Now when we accessing the LAN cameras over the Internet, the video streaming rate is not that much good. what I would like to know from you guys is there anyway, to improve up the video streaming. So far we have done the product level customizations for this.
I have heard about media servers is this the thing we can use for this or anything else?
Please feel free to ask, if you couldn't get what I said.Thanks for your time.

To check camera recording live on WAN you have to do port forwarding or you can say that NAT Ing should be done...
