If it works you can use this to access your camera from anywhere in the world with one caveat, it may only last a few hours or at best a few days, so onto to the last step in the process.STEP 4 Service providers have many, many customers and it would be very expensive to give each and every one of us a fixed IP address as you did with your camera in step 1.

The problem with this is that it’s likely that this address will change next time turn off and then back on the router or camera.

The first step is to set a fixed address on the camera so that it doesn’t change and you can always find it.

STEP 2 Once you have a fixed IP address, the next step is to update your routers firewall with this information.

The job of the router is to use a single connection to the internet and allow you to use it with multiple devices like cameras and computers.

The default is typically 80, but if you want to have more than one camera, you need to use a different number.

To avoid port conflicts, it’s better to use a number higher than 8000 but less than 60000.This will display your IP in large numbers on the top of the page.You should now test this, enter the IP and port and see if you can access the camera (ie. Some routers block the ability to loop back to your own network so it’s possible that this won’t work from home, so try it from a neighbor or friends network and see if you can connect.By default, most IP cameras are assigned a temporary IP address by your router.This is composed of 4 numbers from zero to 255 that are separated by periods that is how you find your camera.To do this, you will have to go into the configuration screen for your camera and set the option to have a fixed IP address and not use DHCP.
