Running latest Firmware and GUI

Hi guys, bought myself an IP Cam and I'm trying to set it up for remaote access, but not getting very far.

The camera is a Foscam FI8918W and the router is a HUAWEI HG520B.

As is the case with most home users I don't have a static IP so I have signed up for an account with DynDNS and the camera has recognised the account, however at that point I'm stuck.

I know I need to create a link and set up port forwarding, but it's beyond me it seems.

The instructions with the cam explain about port forwarding, but the interface in the example is nothing like the interface in my router, there is no "port forwarding" section as such, but I think the QoS section is the same, but it's very complicated and not as basic as the Lynksis router exampled, and the instructions are clearly translated from Chinese so are a little, erm, erroneous shall we say.

Help would be greatly appreciated.

No two router companies will call it the same thing, what would be the challenge in that?

From what I could see of the menus, click on BASIC, then click NAT, then VIRTUAL SERVER and put in the normal stuff like camera IP address (make sure you set the camera up with a static IP), the port number (both start/end the same, usually 80 by default).

Most of the basic stuff is on my blog and you should read that before going too far. Also, it's best to let the router handle the DDNS stuff, not the camera.

Thanks for the reply, but I just can't work it out, I downloaded a programme to create static IP but it just wants to create one for my PC, I created a DynDNS account which is supposed to remove the need for a static IP, the whole thing has me bewildered.
