Am on the new Exced 12 service, and I absolutely cannot get my IP cameras work, but with a slight caveat.
I have two Foscam units, both have been set to use static IP, and I have assigned a unique port to each one.
I have opened the 2 ports in the router, I am using a WRT-54GL with DD-WRT installed.
I can access these from outside the LAN OK.
Here's the catch. I am trying to use Blue Iris as the camera controlling software. I can configure it to use any port. Default is 80.
I open port 80 on the router, and I run a NETSTAT -aon I see that 80 is listening, but when I go to
it always shows 80 as being closed, YET when I enter
http://my external IP:80, FROM WITHIN THE LAN, I get the Blue Iris application.
But if I go out to a WAN connection, and try that exact sam URL, it times out.
So then I try port 8080, all the same. No matter what port I try,
shows it as closed.
Is there some magic to getting WB to let me view these? Are these ports blocked?
I'm not interested in 24x7 viewing, but if I get an alert from the system via email, I would like to turn them on for viewing.
Thanks for any thoughts on how to get these up and running.
