Today I wanted to help my friend set up his security cam surveilence system.
He has alraedy set everything up, he only wanted me to enable him the was so he could monitor the cam over internet (wherever he was at the moment).
So I came to his house and loged into the default profile of his cam web service via an utp cable. I wrote down the IP address and other info and changed his http port from 80 to 88 in the cam web service interface.
Then I was about to port forward the ports on the router but he has lost his router username and password (yeah, stupid, I know).
Anyway, we were able to log into the cam through an utp cable which we plugged into the router by typing down 192.168.1.10:88 (IP of the cam and the http port). but we got no picture inside.
If we logged directly into the cam receiver (by plugging a monitor and a mouse into it) we were able to see the picture from the cam but when logged into it through a computer via an utp cable and router we got no picture. Web service yes, but no picture, no video.
So, what could be the problem about that? I tought it could be that maybe the other port (the 557 o somethng like that) which is not http (I forgot the name, it was an abbreviaton like RSTS or something) was maybe not set up in the router? But the 88 wasn't as well but we were still able to get into the cam web interface.
If anyone knows, please do tell. Thank you!
