Hi, I have a Vilar vipcam and I can see it on my laptop, that is on the same subnet as the camera. CAmera IP =, Gateway,, Laptop =
I have a Belkin router and I have disabled the DMZ and made a Virtual Server in the Belkin router at port 80 TCP/UDP.
I have set the DDNS to DynDNS.org and made the free account with them and made a hostname.
I am no internet expert, but this is how far I got, Now when I put the hostname in my browser I get nothing (from my work computer). At home, on my laptop, I can see the camera view and control it all okay.

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong here?

Don't know about your camera, but mine uses not only port 80, but 2 other ports to stream the video. Also, don't use DHCP to automatically assign an address to the camera, huge mistake. What happens is you reset the camera, it picks up a different IP and then you have to go into your router and set the port numbers for that new IP address. Personally, I would not use the default port 80 for a webserver. It makes it too easy for someone to find camera by mistake. When you browse, use IP:portno, for example if you setup your port number as 9100, you would browse
