Portforwarding is basically a feature telling the reouter to rout all the traffic to a particular port to a different port. By default all the HTTP requests are channeled through port 80, But most of the residential ISP's block port 80 so that those connection cannot used for hosting sites and IP Cameras. So there is always a work around for everything. Like AntiVirus for Virus. You need to first find out on what port your IP Camera is set to. Then open your router configuration page and goto Gaming and Applications and set the port your want to access from outside and the port you want to access from inside.

So for instance if the IP of the Camera is 192.168.1.5 internally then you need to set it using the public ip. If port 80 is blocked you can use port 8080 as the alernate port.

You can try using http://portforward.com This will take care of most of things you need to research.

I have tried it and it isnt working it says

start port
end port
and you have got a choice of FTP,TELNET,WWW.,WELL KNOWN PORT
which one shall i use

so i set it as port 8080 and it didnt work
I tried port 80 no look

but in the camera configuration page it says default 80 but it says use second port shall it be enabled or disabled

0

use 80
dont bother with second port
and tell your router to forward all TCP 80requests to the cameras internal IP

Ok we have disabled the secondry port but no look what would the internal port be and the public port be would they both be 80 and what would the other thing be

FTP
WWW.
TELNET
Well Known Port

Any ideas

See Port 80 is used for HTTP and thats what you are going to use. You can change the port 80 of you Camera to listen to Port 8080 and then you can forward port 80 to 8080 in your router.
