I have a problem going on which I can't seem to resolve.
Here is the issue:
I bought a webcam Trendnet TV-IP110 camera. I want to set it up so I can use it from any computer, anywhere.
My understanding is that I should be able to type an IP address with :port and access my camera from anywhere.
Here is my first problem:
I don't have a static IP address, so I did setup an free account with dyndns.com.
I did setup a Hostname, service 'host with ip address' . I filled in the IP address 74.xxx.xxx.xxx which was the auto detected IP.
I don't understand, since I have a dynamic IP address and it changes, how can this service help me?
Here is my network information
I have a Trendnet DSL modem TDM C400
* I did create a NAT rule
* Flavor RDR
* Protocal ANY
* Local ip address from and to as 192.168.2.2 (this is the local IP address for my IP Camera)* Global IP address from and to: 192.168.1.254 (local IP address for my DLS Router).
* Destination port from and to: 8077
* Local port to: 0
Did press commit and reboot and did reboot the modem.
Question was I suppose to fill in the public IP address in 'Global IP' ?
If so, I have a dynamic IP address so how would that work?
Next I have a router connected to my Trendnet modem. It's the Belkin f5d7234-4.
In the Belkin menu I did go to 'Virtual server' and entered the port number 8077 in 'inbound port' and 'private port'.
I did enter the ip address of the camera under 'Private ip address' as 192.168.2.2. I did also check the 'enable' box.
Then I went to 'System settings' and at the feature 'remote management' I checked the option 'any ip address can remotely mangage the router'. Then I entered the 'remote access port' to 8077. Then I restarted the router and it saved the options.
The IP camera TV-IP110 setup:
DHCP is selected
DDNS settings is enabled and the correct info is entered for DynDNS.com
UpNp is enabled
Port number is set to 8077.
This is my setup. Yet when I go to my dyndns account and click on the website I setup it doesn't find the server. If I type in the dynamic IP address http://IP:8077/ I actually get a log in screen. When I log in i have access to my DSL modem, not to my camera!
My guess is that something is not correct in the settings for the port forwarding.
Also I am confused about the dynamic IP address I entered at dyndns.com.
The TCP/IP adapter settings are on 'obtian automatic'.
I would appriciate any help if you see any issue which I did not setup correctly, so I can use my camera from anywhere.
Thanks so much!
PS the ip camera works great on the local area network. When I type 192.168.2.2:8077 it pulls up.
