  1. What is port forwarding for?

Port forwarding allows remote computers (for example, computers on the internet) to connect to a specific computer or service within a private local-area network. The technique is used to permit communications by external hosts with services provided within a private local area network.

For IP Camera, port forwarding makes your camera work on the internet, which can be viewed all over the word via internet. (e.g. I put an IP camera at home ,I can get monitoring pictures at office via internet if I finished port forwarding setup. or else you could only view your cameras at home in the local area network.)




  1. How to make port forwarding in the router?

2.1 Configure your IP Camera “Network Configure”.

  1. Login your IP Camera and go to “Configure---Network Configure”

  2. Configure IP Cameras Ports

Device Port: Default value is 5000

Web Port: Default value is 80.Please change it to another one which is between 100~65535. Don’t use 80, because usually port 80 has been used by other applications.(e.g. 2701,2702,2703, etc.)

RTSP Port: Default value is 554

ONVIF Port: Default value is 12001



PS: Port range 1~65535,If you have two or more IP Cameras, please make different cameras use different ports. In other words, don’t use the same number at different kinds of ports and different cameras.

  1. Configure “IP Address” according to your local network.

For example: My PC IP Address My IP Camera IP Address

IP Address: 192.168.2.100 192.168.2.101

Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 255.255.255.0

Gateway: 192.168.2.1 192.168.2.1

Multicast address: Default Default

PS: Don’t use the same IP address for different devices (PC,phone,camera,etc.).if you have two or more IP Cameras, set different fixed IP addresses for each one.


  1. Configure “DNS Server”.

Get your local DNS server information from your router or ISP and input them.

PS: If you don’t know how to check the DNS server infos, please use DNS server which is provided by Google.(Primary DNS server:8.8.8.8 Secondary DNS server:8.8.4.4)

2.2 Choose the brand of your router:

PS: Please forward 4 ports (“Device Port”, “Web Port”,” RTST Port”, “ONVIF Port” ).

The numbers pictures show are only for reference, please configure your settings according to your IP Camera and network situations.

  2. D-Link

  3. Linksys(Cisco)

  4. Netgear

  5. Trendnet

  1. Remote View

After 4 ports forwarding, now you can view your IP Camera anywhere through the internet. The IP Camera address would be : Http://(Wan IP Address):(ports)

e.g. http://113.108.119.20:2708 (This is QiHan Demo IP Camera address.)

3.1 How to know my external ip address (Wan ip address)?

Google search:”what is my ip address”, it will tell you that.You can also use DDNS instead of Wan IP address. (About DDNS, please refer to DDNS setting User Guide)

    1. Try Remote View

Open Internet Explorer and visit your IP Camera address.

e.g. http://113.108.119.20:2708
