In your firewall or router, you will have to add an address translation so that you may be directed to the IP cam.  Do you use a firewall or router and what kind.  Depending on your layout, you may need to use Port Address Translation where your 'staticIPaddress:port' translates to your 'internalIPaddress'.  Then to access your Cam from the internet, you would type in the static address with the port.

Sometimes, you can only see an IP address "one-way" from a router.   Is your static address on your computer, on a router, or what?

The static IP problem seems to be solved. Now i can ping back myself.

Im using now a linksys router, these are the options I get in the settings:

Port forwarding:

Port range forwarding:

What brand/model of camera are you using?  Can you get into your IP cam setup and see what port it uses?   If so, in your linksys router, under single port forwarding, under the Application column make a new name down at the bottom called "WebCam" or whatever you will remember it by, then enter the port (the one you located in the IP Cam setup) in both External and Internal Port textboxes,  then enter the IP address of your IP Cam and check the box to enable it.  Then click the submit button or whatever it's called on that screen to apply the changes.  Do not use a standard port like port 80.  If you have to setup a port manually in the camera, use something like 1024 or let the camera choose if that is an option.

I'm using a camera i bought on ebay, i dont even know the brand, its really good and has loads of features i can use in my lan... but i still cant use it from a remote location over the internet.

I've tried to do what you told me, using the port 1024 (by default it would assing the 80), changed it in the rotuer (internally and externally) pointing to the cam IP and is still not working.

I type into my broswer my IP:1024, if i use just my ip it would redirect me to my router.

Just so I'm clear, you have set up port 1024 on the camera setup, and you have set port 1024 on the external and internal in the router settings and gave it the camera's IP address as well?

I dont know why but I changed the default port (80) of the camera to the 1024 and did what you told me (single port forwarding, internal and external) and now it works wonders, I just type in my browser my public IP:port and I can access the cam flawlessly from anywhere!!

Thank you!
