      email notification possible? WVC54GC

      Hi,

      I've got a wvc54gc ip camera now set up on the web. I'm trying to do the email notification with a gmx.co.uk account.

      From what I read on the net port 25 (smtp server) is ISP blocked. Is this correct ?

      Any other ways around this?

      Thanks

      Port 25 is, as you say, the outgoing smtp port. 110 is the equivalent incoming.
      I use my own email servers which use both those ports without any problems and without any special settings.
      So, I don't think they can be blocked!

      Do you know if you can use the sky email settings?

      What settings are you using to send with? You need to use the sky user name and password, SMTP server and port.

      Your Sky username includes the @sky.com!
      Incoming Server is pop.tools.sky.com; outgoing is smtp.tools.sky.com

      Yip, using all of those.

      Still getting the smtp server unknown. Could it be that I'm not directing traffic correctly as I'm using the web cam as I'm forwarding port 1024 through the camera?

      What do you mean by "and port" ? There's nowhere to enter that other than the alternate port setting.

      Just ensure that the camera and router are using the same port number i.e.1024!
