ip camera, firewall help

by bryanw20 » Sun Jun 09, 2019 8:45 pm

not specific to sighthound; but I just got a new ISP.

I can't remember what I need to do to see my cameras outside the house?
I have a static ip thing configured; it was something with the modem & firewall, or something in the settings.
Any idea what I need to fix?

Hello bryanw20,

Seems like you are interested in port forwarding. You want to search sites like portforward.com and your specific router on that site.

Take care,

Kenneth

Thanks; I found port forwarding but for the life of me couldn't get 2 of the 3 cameras to work outside the house...
even called the new ISP; was told we don't support that; you're on your own.

finally noticed the gateway ip; that changed. fixed that and now they work, yay!!!
