Windows 7: Port forwarding not working...

Hi there

Read THIS first as Windows 7 HOME PREMIUM does not allow remote connections.

Does Windows 7 Home Premium support Remote Desktop? - Microsoft Community

Before trying the camera see if you can access a FILE on your computer when accessing the machine remotely.

Test if your port forwarding works by trying to RDP to your home computer -- set the home computer to allow incoming remote connections.

I've got a feeling however if you are using Windows 7 Home edition you won't have much luck as RDP won't work for INCOMING connections unless you have Windows 7 Pro or higher.

A way round that is to install say XP Pro as a Virtual machine (doesn't take much space and VMware player is free) - then port forward to the VM XP machine and start your camera up with the application you usually use (install the app on XP).

Otherwise an upgrade to Windows 7 pro will be required.

(Another way is to set your home machine up as an Internet server (IIS) but that's another whole issue you really don't want to tangle with at this stage).

(I know it's a Windows 7 Forum but a cheap upgrade to W8 Pro for 40 USD might be also a solution !!).

Once you get up and running this little app should open nearly every webcam on the planet (Usb ones -- whether built in to the computer or externally attached).

I think all your problems stem from the fact that the Internet address your router presents to the internet is YOUR ISP provider's IP address they've assigned to MACHINE which might not accept incoming connections.

what programs that use things like DYN-DNS / NO-IP or similar is that every so often you have a small program working on the HOME PC which sees if the IP address has changed, then forwards that to the DYN-DNS / NO-IP or other software which then updates your site address with the current IP of your machine.

For example your assigned internet domain via NO-IP / DYN-DNS etc www.dogsbody.is
your home IP address is changed by your IP provider at various times say itsa now www.xxx.yyy.zzz

what happens is that www.dogsbody,is is now assigned to the latest IP address your IP has given you.

You'll find also on the router your networks should have the IP addresses (internal) 192.xx.yy.zz or whatever.

so in any case if the camera is a stand alone device you will need to know what address it is on your HOME LAN. If your router is ALSO dynamically assigning IP addresses then you are hosed up as well -- so you need to say have some FIXED addresses for devices like network printers and cameras.

Assign STATIC local IP addresses to your network devices.

I'm not sure how you set this up but if the camera is attached or operated via your main machine rather than just by using IE then you've got problems as the main machine won't accept incoming connections-- the LAN will of course.

If it's a pure network device provided it's got a FIXED stand alone local IP address it should work.

Even your phone should be able to access it with a web browser.

What does your IP address start with? If it is 192 or 172 or 10 then your router is behind another router.

edwar: 192 always at my local network.
My WAN Ip begins with 82.xx.xx.xx

status of router tab in router menu:
Internet port: IP-adress 192.168.178.10
Connection type: DHCP
LAN-port: 192.168.1.1

We do have the router connected to a modem.

I have windows 7 ultimate....but i dont see how windows has anything to do with this. i mean....if its working correctly i should be able to access iphone to router to camera? windows PC can be left out of the network all together? (although useful for changing settings)

i have set the camera to connect to the router through wifi. So it is not connected to my pc.

the router does have a function called static routes....but i have no idea where to set static ip or dynamic ip.

Hi what is the netgear connected to please give make and model of modem or ADSL modem/router please.

Does your isp supply a dynamic ip address or static ip address a quick call to them and they will be able to give you an answer.

You should not need to add a static route using RIP.

What type of connection do you have? DSL or Cable?
If it is DSL then the modem is more then likely also a Router.
You say your stand alone router has an Internet port, which is the WAN port, of 192.168.x.x. that means there is another router in front of it. More then likely the Modem is also doing routing and handing out Private IP addresses.

You need to Disable the router section in one of them. Some DSL modem can be set into Bridged Ethernet making it only a Modem and passing the Public IP over to the next device in the line, which would be your stand alone router.
Or you can use your stand alone router as just a switch, and if it is wireless and Wireless Access Point by turning off the DHCP server in it and NOT using the Internet/WAN port. Just run from the Modem/router combo box to one of the LAN ports of the stand alone router.
Then you would need to configure the Port Forwarding on the Modem/Router combo box.

Yeah well that Cable modem is also a router. You will never get to your camera, at least not easily, with 2 (TWO) routers connected one behind the other.
You need to connect One PC to that modem/Router combo box and see if you can turn it into a Bridged Ethernet system, that will forward the Public IP to your second router or as stated above make the second router a switch by not using the Internet/WAN port and turning off the DHCP server. then you would need to forward that port in the Modem/Router box to the IP the camera gets.

Yes i see your device is a modem/router as edwar has pointed out.

The problem here is you will have to forward the port for your camera here as well to your wan address of the netgear router issued by the ubee.

First can i ask you why you need two routers connected up as the ubee offers wi-fi is it because certain devices cannot get a good signal from the ubee?
