hello all,


 I have a problem accessing my IP camera through my home network, remotely.  I can access it locally.  My setup is R1 connects to R2 through usb.  I can access internet through R2


but not some service ex xbox, ip camera.  Im wondering if you can help me open port 8080. also getting error with 2 external IPs, shouldn't I aim for 1?


R1 = Novatel Mifi 6620L

R2 = Peplink Surf SOHO


heres how its connected:


external ip [Mifi] > < [SOHO] > < [IP camera]



does anyone have experience in the Peplink or Mifi? thanks

Hi Blucustom, lets try and rule out an IP address conflict first.


Can you find the camera's MAC address (its usually printed somewhere on the camera or the housing) and should look something like 00-24-2d-8a-e8-fd or similar.

Reboot the camera (pwr down, wait 20sec, pwr up).


Open a command prompt on your windows machine and type arp -a (notice the space before -a) and post a screenshot of it here for me.

Can you locate the IP address associated with this MAC (physical) address? 


If so, can you ping this IP address for me using the command prompt again (ping 192.168.x.x) and post a screenshot of the results.


Ofcourse, replace 192.168.x.x  in the above cmd's, with the IP address that you discover is listed next to the camera's MAC addy.
