Setting up port forwarding in your Netgear Router
To access your camera through the internet you will need a portforwarding service inside your router. For more general information about the ddns access please refer to HERE.
To access the user interface of your router open the following address with your internet browser http://192.168.1.1 . The default login is username = admin and password = password. Navigate to the Port Forwarding/Port Triggering in the Advanced menu. Type your cameras IP address into the field Server IP Address. You can find your cameras IP address using our IP Camera Tool. Click on Add to save the service.
You will need to change both the start and end port to the port you want to operate your camera on. Click on Edit Service to customize the service.
You can now choose a service name, set the protocol to TCP and choose your camera port for both the starting port and ending port. The default port for your camera is the port 80.
Click Apply to activate the service..
Your camera can now be reached via the ddns address that can be found under System/Info in your cameras user interface (s. above). In case the port 80 is already taken in your network you will have to change the camera port under Network/Basic Network Settings and of course adjust the portforwarding service to the new port.
If you are using more then one camera you have to also create another Port rule for each camera.Please make sure that the Öffentliche Port is always different for each port forwarding. For example if you are using Port 80 for the first camera then the second camera should have the Port 81 and the third camera Port 82 and so on.
To open each camera you would type in something like this:
- Camera 1
- Camera 2
and so on...
Note: You can access all cameras with only one internet address. Only the Port at the end has to be changed. Therefore, you do not have to remember all DDNS addresses of the camera. You only need to remember one address.
