Just make sure that you do not use the same number twice, it must be unique and not interfere with the lower number that are used by DHCP, so I would recommend you start at least at an IP address of your PC plus 25.
For DNS, put either the gateway address or 22.214.171.124 as a last resort. A port number is what is used to allow a single IP address to have multiple devices.
If it works you can use this to access your camera from anywhere in the world with one caveat, it may only last a few hours or at best a few days, so onto to the last step in the process.
STEP 4 Service providers have many, many customers and it would be very expensive to give each and every one of us a fixed IP address as you did with your camera in step 1.
This can only either start with 192.168 or 10…, so you know you are using an internal address if it starts with this.
To access the cameras remotely, you need it’s WAN address.
Some cameras have 2 way audio, so you can even talk to the person or pet. We all know that if we go to a certain IP address on our home browser, we can configure and view the camera, but how do we do the very same thing when we are not home.
STEP 1 There’s several steps into making this work, so it’s best to start at the camera.
You will see the IPv4 address, the subnet mask and the default gateway.The problem with this is that it’s likely that this address will change next time turn off and then back on the router or camera.The first step is to set a fixed address on the camera so that it doesn’t change and you can always find it.For example, if you have 3 cameras, you can use 10001, 1003.
From that point on, since port 80 is the default, you must specify the port number after the IP address separated by a colon when accessing the camera, for example if you used 10002, you will use to view the camera from your browser at home.
This will display your IP in large numbers on the top of the page.
