Setting the IP Camera is accessible via the Internet

Many questions come to us: “How do we make the IP Camera can be accessed from the internet”. Actually quite easy to do this, in all D-Link Broadband Router there is a feature called Virtual Server. Setting the IP Camera is accessible via the Internet

How it works is pretty simple feature that is forward certain ports to a machine on our internal network. So what’s the difference with the Virtual Server Port Forwarding? How it works almost the same, only with Port Forwarding we could use a lot of ports (for example, from 8000-8010 or 80,90,100) while Virtual Server can only use a single port (eg 8000 only)

In this example, I will use the connection Firstmedia (Fastnet), as a Router DIR-655 and DCS-6620 IP Camera as his.

Layout as shown below:

DIR-655 WAN IP obtained dynamically from the ISP, while its LAN IP is set to default is 192.168.0.1

For the DCS-6620, its IP set to 192.168.0.80 with gateway and DNS to 192.168.0.1, for the HTTP port in this example I change to port 8000 (you can replace with any number of ports (above 1024), provided it does not conflict with which already exist). Can be seen in the following figure:

Once completed, we set the Virtual Server on the DIR-655, enter the IP Camera and set the Public Port Private Port to 8000 and 8000. What is the difference Public Port and Private Port? Public Port is the port that is “visible” on the internet while the Private Port is a port of the camera itself (remember I had to change to 8000)

After completion of stay “Save Settings” and if there is the “Reboot Now”, reboot your DIR-655. Setting the IP Camera is accessible via the Internet

Now we check how many IP WAN acquired (due to the dynamic IP from your ISP):

After that we tried from other connections such as ADSL from a neighbor or friend:-D or borrowed 3G Sodara:-D, to access the IP Camera, we simply write the address in Internet Explorer with format: http://ABCD:xxxx where ABCD is the WAN IP that we see from Status -> Device Info before and Public Port xxxx is that we define in the Virtual Server settings.

For example:

Now the question is, do we have to check the WAN IP on the router we continue if we want to see our IP Camera? As long as we are Dynamic IP WAN IP then the answer is “Yes”. Then there is another question, is there any way to make it easier, the answer is clearly no, we can use the DDNS feature in this case. Setting the IP Camera is accessible via the Internet
