- Setting-up Port Forwarding to Remotely Access your WVC54GC
This article will provide instructions on how to access your camera remotely by assigning it a port number and using the port forwarding function on your Linksys router. This process must be done on your Linksys router.
NOTE: Make sure that you have an active Internet connection to view your camera remotely. This setup assumes that your wireless camera is connected to a Linksys router
Assigning a Port Number for your Wireless Camera
On the left-hand side of the Setup page, click Options and scroll down to the Other category.
Choose Enable from the drop-down menu for Alternate Port and enter any Port Number value between 1024 and 65534.
Click the button.
NOTE: You now have a port number for your Wireless-G Camera which will allow you to have it forwarded on your Linksys router.
Setting-up Port Forwarding for your Camera
Access the web-based setup page of your router. To learn how, click here.
Click Applications & Gaming.
You will automatically be taken to the Single Port Forwarding page. Enter the following information:
• Application Name – the name of each camera you will be viewing (you may use any name assignment)
• External and internal port – copy the port number value you assigned to your camera from the camera’s web-based setup page.
• To IP Address – enter the last octet of your cameras’ Static IP address here.
NOTE: Set the Protocol to UDP and click the checkbox under the Enabled column.
After completing all the necessary entries, click the button.
Click Continue on the confirmation screen.
NOTE: After setting-up port forwarding on your Linksys router, connect the router to your modem for the devices to have online connection.
