Access IP Camera VIA Internet
There are two ways to get access to IP camera via Internet. A. configure visiting plug on your router. B. set DMZ HOST on your router, it is much easier.
A. When a remote access via internet visit, port forwarding in router is a must, different brands routes have different name, but the operation is the same.
Take the TP-LINK TD-8840 router port mapping setting as example. To set up IP Camera as an example: router inner web IP is 192.168.1.1, IP camera inner web address is 192.168.1.50, and port is 80.
- First log in router web administration interface.
- Click in front of left side “Advanced Setup”
- lick "virtual server" in the unfolded menu.
- fill "80" under the right port start or port end, Server IP address fill "192.168.1.50", protocol select "TCP/UDP"OR""TCP", finally don't forget click under ""save/apply"
Detailed information please refer to following photo: When complete port forwarding, you can visit camera through device code in outer net remotely;
Common router default visit address:
1. DLINK ex-factory definition router address is 192.168.0.1
2. Linksys ex-factory definition router address is 192.168.1.1

B. The second way is to set DMZ HOST for IP camera on your router, each router has such setting but with different router menu maybe. Please find it carefully and will find it. After setting the DMZ, the IP camera will be expose to internet, all visiting to the IP address of outer net will be forwarded to the IP camera by router, then you can visit camera via internet.
