Hello, I have a problem to access my IP Cam either with DDNS and port forwarding due to the fact that my LAN is behind multiple NAT servers. In other words, my router gateway IP address, that is connected to the ISP network, is a private IP address.
Please, is there a technique or tool to access my IP Cam from the internet?

You can enable port forwarding on your router however...

  1. There have been may cases of people accessing these port forwarded IP cameras
  2. This can be a legal grey area in some countries and it (at least in the UK) isn't illegal to watch unsecured IP camera feeds as long as they aren't trying to login to the settings
  3. Chinese IP camera manufacturers don't tend to update their firmware so you could leave an exposed security hole on your network

Port forwarding is not capable since my ISP is using multi NAT servers. which means that my WAN IP address at the router is a private address.

You could try ivideon:

https://www.ivideon.com/

 

I`ve used the service before when I was using the IP Webcam app for Android and it has a free live view stream service but you`ll might have to run a computer 24/7 and it`ll be used to store footage, no idea if it`ll work on your IP Camera but it`s worth a shot.

There is no computer in the surveillance area just a wireless router.

Just try to use a computer to set the IP camera to Ivideon and see if it's required to be onsite 24/7 as I don't really know

Using Ivedion, When the Server on the computer is turned off the surveillance will be ended.

OK, sorry for the last reply, I'm not aware of any other way to access the webcam remotely unless you change your ISP or have a computer running 24/7.
