I have my IP camera set up and working fine on my LAN. It is on port 1025 and I have setup port forwarding in my router from the camera device to my local IP address (192.168.1.64) for both UDP and TCP to port 1025. The camera's IP address is fixed to 192.168.1.125. Using the address 192.168.1.125:1025 in my browser I can see the camera fine and use the soft controls to operate the slew, focus, etc of the camera, as well as take snapshots and record the video. So far all good.
When I try to access the camera from outside my LAN, I get nothing in my browser when I type the external IP address, followed by a colon and my port address, ie nnn.nnn.nn.nn:1025. I don't have a static IP address and I have yet to set up DDNS. Firstly I just want to prove it works OK with the currently allocated external IP address. I can access my router from within my LAN using the external IP address but not from the internet. I have enabled and disabled my router firewall which seems to make no difference. I did try my router's remote access feature which did allow me into the router using port 11480 and a username /password. So the router is accessible from the Internet via the router’s remote access feature but not by any other address I try.
I think I've done everything right and have spent an awful amount of time trawling the internet for suggestions and solutions but none have yet worked. The router is a Technicolor TG587n-v3.
Any suggestions/help would be much appreciated.
