Hello, complete newbie here.

I have set up a Dlink 930 camera in my house and am trying to view it remotely, ideally on my blackberry. The camera came with software to connect to "mydlink.com" for remote viewing, but this is not BB friendly, and really, overall it sucks. So I started searching the net for alternate ways to view it remotely.

Most of the methods involve port-forwarding, and I have tried this a few different ways but am having no luck. I have assigned a static IP to the camera and can view it on my home network. I created a hosting page through dyndns.com, and forwarded it through that. If I try to view it remotely, I get my ISP information (user name and password). So i think it is stopping at my ISP modem and not accessing my wireless modem (dlink 615).

I'm guessing I have missed a step, or done something wrong, and someone with some experience can help me out.

you can use http://sensr.net to view your camera from outside your firewall without any firewall config.

How to configure a DCS-930L from Mac or Linux will show you how to do this. If your camera is already up and running, you can skip the first part.

Hope this helps!

Blackberries are good for email, that's it. Look at my blog, there's an article on how to configure camera and router fir external access.

All 5 out of 5 of your posts are plugs for this!? Do you really need to spam this forum with every post you make?

Why is it spam if it's a legit solution to his problem?

smurfy71 seems to be having trouble seeing his camera because of firewall issues. I have a solution for that problem which certainly seems like a legit option. In fact I had the same problem and that's why I created the site.

Ok, so 5 out of 5 of my posts are about using sensr.net, but for legitimate solutions to problems people are asking about.

Thanks, but no thanks. Don't want public access to my camera.

Just to be clear. You can add a camera to sensr.net and set it as private. This means only you can see it. You don't need to do any port forwarding and you get archiving and mobile access for free.

Hi, I have a DLink 5220 camera connected to my network.
I can ping it but when using web interface, IE8, it give me HTTP 400 Error.
I have removed MS silverlight from my PC as google the web said it was due to MS Sliverlight, but I still cannot link using web interface.
I would need to access it otherwise I will not be able to perform or change any settings.
Please help. thanks.

Okay, so I signed up and followed the instructions. My camera says "Invalid FTP server address"

No offence, but you should start your own thread if you want someone to answer your question.

You may not have your DNS sever settings correct in your camera. I had this problem once and wrote this blog entry to help other folks find and fix it.

Your instructions are unclear, the website says to set the FTP settings on the camera, your blog says to set the DDNS settings, which is it? When I followed the blog instructions i get this error:
Invalid Dynamic DNS Provider setting
