      Port forward - sky blackhub - foscam cameras

      Hi,

      I have tried reading the tutorials and other peoples advice but have got nowhere. I have just left BT and joined Sky Broadband. I had no issues setting up my cameras on BT.

      I have three Foscams I have given them IP addresses and Ports. I can see the cameras when I am at home on my home network.

      I went into router and allocated the IP addresses of the cameras in the table.
      I set up the 3 cameras in the services table with the relevant allocated port.
      I then created firewall rules......not sure if i did this right
      and I spent the whole of yesterday reading posts and I still can't see the cameras on my phone when on the net outside my home.

      I am at a loss but obviously have done something wrong.

      I am pretty sure you have done this but just to check-
      1. Have you reserved the address of each camera in your router so they are always given the same address?
      2. Do you have a DynDNS address, such as somebody.noip.org, or are you using the WAN address of your router?
      3. If you are using the Wan address are you using the correct format xxx.xxx.xxx.xxxort number of camera?
      4. What ports have you used? The same as you had before should work as long as each camera is different.
      5. Are you using an app such as https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....ASee&hl=en_GB ?

      Hi all,

      Well I got it set up yesterda y to another 1.5 hours of messing about and it would appear more difficult than my netgear or bt hub...well not difficult..but u seem to have to set up similar stuff in different places. Like multiple entries of same IP address despite having already told it that camera 1 is such and such an IP etc..

      But cheers anyway
