Need to Access a network camera on internal network from external network

Posted on 2008-09-29
Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I have a network camera in my test fixture area that I would like a customers to be able to view.  The camera is set for port 80.  I have tried port forwarding by typing the following:

static (inside,outside2) tcp interface 80 80 netmask
access-list outside_access_in permit tcp any interface outside eq 80

I still cannot access camera from outside network.  Any suggesions would be greatly appreciated.

You'll probably need to post the entire config to determine what the problem is.
Of course, redact public IPs and any other sensitive info.

192 is a internal number only. You are going to have to have a NAT address that points to that internal address. You will need to use that NAT address to reach the camera from an external network. 192 class numbers are not valid external network or internet ip addresses. You can do a reverse IP lookup or contact your internet provider to find out what the NAT address is.

The static and the access-list are correct.
Check the default gateway setup on the camera

I've got to ask, but can you access the camera from the inside network?

I checked the default gateway of the camera and it is set properly.  I can access the network internally by typing in my browser and it comes up.  I will supply a copy of the running configuration once I get to work.  Thank you for the response.  Hopefully, I can get this working today.

static (inside,outside2)
You have multiple outside interfaces?
I'm curious to see the running config to see where your firewall's default route goes...

if your trying to type a 192 class # from the internet to see your camera it will never work!

That is right - make sure you are accessing with your public IP address: you can find it by going to and looking at the top of the screen.

Once again. Are you trying to access this camera using the 192 address from a external network?
Once again. If you are then this WILL NOT WORK.
