I posted a similar request in the General forum, but realize I should have posted here.

In any case, I have an Axis 207W and a Canon VB-C50i I want to make accessible outside of the network. I am using a Belkin router and port forwarding to the two cameras. This doesn't work. Now, I have about 6 other cameras from Panasonic, Toshiba, and Sony on the same network, using the same router and port forwarding, and they work fine. So, does Axis and Canon use more ports than just one for outside access? For example, on the Axis I have the web server to run on port 8000, and have the router forwarding all packets to port 8000 to the Axis, just like I do with the other cameras, but the axis refueses to work. And yes, both the Axis and Canon work perfectly within the network.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm pulling my hair out over this one! Smile

Thanks for the offer IPCCTV, but I actually figured out what the problem was! The camera needs to have an IP for the Default Gateway setting. Strange because I don't enter this for my othe 5 cameras and they all work fine. So anyway, mystery solved. I simply entered the router's IP address in the Default Gateway field and all works fine now.

Just a quick observation. Did your other cameras get there IP address by DHCP? Some cameras are default to obtain the address by DHCP and others are static. This could be the reason why the default gateway was not assigned. The Axis camera is default to a static IP address.

Very Happy

John, I manually set my IP addresses on all my cameras. I've had too many problems when relying on DHCP. Also, port forwarding becomes a nightmare (in my experience) when using DHCP.

I actually got rid of the Axis so I don't know if the default gateway was the issue on why I couldn't get it to accessible from the outside. The default gateway was the resolution for the Canon VB-C50i.

I also just got a Sony SNC-RZ50N... an amazing camera! By far the best Network camera I have. It's expensive, but well worth the quality of the optics, the EXTREMELY quiet and smooth (not to mention fast) of the Pan/Tilt mechanism. Sony by far has the best Pan/Tilt mechanism in the industry. Canon is okay, but too loud and not nearly as smooth.
