why can I not access one secure port on my LAN from the internet
Posted on 2009-12-26
I set up a LAN at home with a security camera and a security system including automatic lighting. Within the LAN, I can access all of the ports. The security system has a secure port forwarded as do the camera and the linksys router. When I am away from home, I can access the camera, the lighting controller and the linksys setup page. I use dyndns.org to provide a dynamic IP for my LAN and I address all these ports through it. The security system is supposed to be accessible so that I can turn it on and off. When I emailed support with the problem, and finally gave him the security codes and passwords, he was able to immediately access the port, enter and active the security functions. I get an error message saying that the site is taking too long to load. I deleted and reactivated the certificate without effect. I use the latest version of Firefox and also tried Internet Explorer 6 and Google Chrome, the latter without importing any settings. All give me the same message. Strangely, while I can easily access the security camera, I have given the IP and passwords for the camera to two of my sons and they cannot access the camera. Any thoughts??
