We are having issues connecting to our camera. We have a sony snc-rx550 and a dlink dir-655 router. We have a dyndns account and have set up a host to surf to. On the router I have the option of using a virtual server or port forwarding. I have put the camera info in them both, but I still cannot get to the camera. I can view everything fine in the lan and the camera is working on the assigned ip.
Any thoughts? Should I change from one to the other?

if all you are doing is trying to view the one camera, Port forwarding should work fine for you. What's your setup and what problems are you experience?

we can access the camera from the LAN but not over the WAN. We finally found the solution. It turns out that the Gateway information was missing from the setup of the camera. Once we entered this info in, everything worked. We are using the virtual server setting.
Does anyone know if there is a differnece between the virtual server setting and the port forwarding option? On our router (Dlink DIR-655) it has both options. The virtal server seems to be for one specific port whereas the port forwarding section seems to be for a range of ports. Does the camera normally need only one port opened?

i believe so, normally you can access the camera via van through one public ip address plus one port.
