      Help with port Forwarding

      Hi I have an Edimax IC-7000 hard wirerd in my Sky Sagem router.
      I have tryed for two days to get it to work with my router I have setup DynDNS Updater as my Ip is not static, but all I can do with it is to run it on the test software.
      I need to set up so I can see it off the web.
      I tryed to setup port forwarding but I just can not get working. Can some one please, please give me a big dummy's guide to set it up because it is no good as a 120 pound a pan & tilt door stop.
      Regards Bover

      What currently happens when you point a web browser to your external IP address? Do you get the router login page come up?
      Have you filled in the screen with the default gateway etc? The default gateway will be the 192.168.0.1 IP address,
      your camera needs to be on a fixed IP (I would suggest 192.168.0.254 to keep it out of the way),
      It isusing port 80 by default so you would forward port 80 HTTP traffic on the router to your external IP address.
      When accessing it try typing in your external IP address with :80 on the end of it.

      Are you looking at it from a PC inside your network or one outside it? If the PC is part of the same network as the router then typing in the Sky (90.xxx.xxx.xxx) address will bring up the router settings screen, as it can't resolve IP addresses internally.

      To view the camera internally you type the IP address of the camera (e.g. 192.168.1.3, assuming your PC takes 192.168.1.2) - it's a good idea to give equipment like this a fixed address (Advanced/LAN IP Setup/Address Reservation) then you can always get to it the same way whatever is connected to the network. Port forwarding is a simple matter of directing port 80 to the camera's IP and typing the external (Sky) IP address in a router outside your network.

      One thing about DynDNS - the router's updater is normally set to correct the IP address when it changes. If you are 'always on' then your external Sky IP won't change very often. DynDNS can remove accounts if they are not updated regularly (it used to be every 29 days), so it's good to manually refresh the settings every so often, or find an application that will do it automatically.
