|I recently purchased a Zonet wireless IP camera. It works great within my network but I'm trying to get it to work externally. Here's my setup:|
Internet --> Grandstream VOIP Adapter (HandyTone502) --> WAN port on BEFSR41 Router (DHCP enabled) --> Port 2 to Port 1 on BEFSR41 Router#2 (DHCP disabled) --> Port 2 to Port 1 on WRT55AG Wireless Router (DHCP disabled) --> Wireless IP Camera
It would seem that port forwarding would be pretty straight forward considering everything is on the same LAN, but I can't get it to work.
Internet works fine with this setup. Again, the IP Camera works fine internally.
I've forwarded port 1024 to the internal IP of the web cam (both UDP and TCP) on the VOIP adapter and each of the routers. However, when I enter my external IP address (IP address of the VOIP adapter):1024 (i.e. 126.96.36.1994:1024) it times out.
I also tried forwarding port 1024 on the VOIP adapter to router #1 internal IP, then router #1 to router #2 internal IP, then router #2 to router #3 internal IP and router #3 to IP Camera - that didn't work either.
The user manual for the IP camera suggests the following: "We suggest to use port 1024~65535 if the camera sits behind a NAT router or firewall" I assume that pertains to me so I forwarded 1024 (or at least tried to).
Any suggestions? Thanks.
