Hi there, I'm currently hosting my website on my own computer, and I'm using http://www.no-ip.com to allow me to do so as I have a dynamic IP. (updates the pointers, when my IP changes.. for the domain name).
I have now set up my webcamera to have a have stream on it, the camera is in port 8081, and when I type internally 192.168.1.150:8081; (internal is static @ .150 for my PC), I get to view my web cam.
I would like to also put this through my domain name and a link on my webpage, for this... although when linking it in the html file, I would need to put my current ip and port (i.e. 184.108.40.206:8081); and this does work when outside of the network, although I would like it so I don't have to hard code my IP, because as I said, it's dynamic!
How could I get around this? would http://www.websitedomain.com:8081 work?
If so, how would I get this to work, because it's currently not working!
Before you ask, Yes Port 80 and Port 8081 are both forwarded. As I said, the camera stream does work when connecting with my ip and port, although I just want a solution to how to link to this port "dynamic.ip.goes.here:8081"; without having to change the IP in the html file, every time my ip changes.
If I'm not describing it well, please let me know and I'll see if I can do a better job at it!
Many thanks, Toby.
