I have a D-Link DCS-920 camera. I wish to access the camera from outside my house. I have Comcast as my Internet provider who provides dynamic IP's (if I shut off modem, then I may get a new WAN IP). Thus, I purchased a ddns service via DynDNS.org. I registered my IP Camera address along with my current WAN IP address. My understanding is that this DDNS service provides an alpha type address for the static IP address of my camera. In addition it will always be updating the various DNS servers with my latest WAN IP address associated with my Camera IP address PROVIDED DynDNS has the lastest WAN IP address.
However, I am very confused on the configuration part of my DCS-920 camera relative to the DDNS part of the setup. The DDNS section ask for
Server Address (www.DynDNS.org
Host Name: mycamera1.com
User Name: username
1. I assume the above information is requested by the D-Link configuration setup page so my camera can send to the DynDNS servers my most up to date WAN IP address ?
2. How often is this information sent to DynDNS
3. What value should I use for the timeout ?
