- Re: Unable to connect to ip cameras from remote location
- Ureka!! I got it to work finally! At least, I think. I won't know for sure until I go off site to a remote computer and try it from there, but it has all appearances that it is working now.
- What I ended up doing is I bridged my DLink router back into the network. I really didn't want to do that but it was the only thing that I could think of to do at this point. It was actually pretty easy. All I had to do was to go back into each camera and reset them back to the static IP's as they were before Uverse. And since my router was already setup for them, once I connected the cameras back to the DLink router, and the Dlink router to the RG through the DMZ, they were all working again as before. This should work fine until a power outage, or I power cycle the RG for anything and it gets a different public IP address, as I am not on a static IP address
- These are the instructions that I found from another site regarding bridging the routers with Uverse:
- There are a couple ways of doing it. First, disable NAT and disable DHCP. The second is to bridge the router. The third, is to buy an actual switch.
- To "Bridge" the router:
- 1. Set your router's WAN interface to get an IP address via DHCP. This is required at first so that the 2Wire recognizes your router.
- 2. Plug your router's WAN interface to one of the 2Wire's LAN interfaces.
- 3. Restart your router, let it get an IP address via DHCP.
- 4. Log into the 2Wire router's interface. Go to Settings -> Firewall -> Applications, Pinholes, and DMZ
- 5. Select your router under section (1).
- 6. Click the DMZPlus button under section (2).
- 7. Click the Save button.
- 8. Restart your router, when it gets an address via DHCP again, it will be the public outside IP address. At this point, you can leave your router in DHCP mode (make sure the firewall on your router allows the DHCP renewal packets, which will occur every 10 minutes), or you can change your router's IP address assignment on the WAN interface to static, and use the same settings it received via DHCP.
- 9. On the 2Wire router, go to Settings -> Firewall -> Advanced Configuration
- 10. Uncheck the following: Stealth Mode, Block Ping, Strict UDP Session Control.
- 11. Check everything under Outbound Protocol Control except NetBIOS.
- 12. Uncheck NetBIOS under Inbound Protocol Control.
- 13. Uncheck all the Attack Detection checkboxes (7 of them).
- 14. Click Save.
