D-Link DCS Network Camera :: 910 - Way To Access A Camera Without Using Dyndns?
May 11, 2012
I asked a question recently about accessing camera via a smartphone but I realize that's not really the correct question. The smartphone works fine locally with wifi and has a browser available.
The real question I have is what is the easiest way to access any camera via a browser from a remote location. Years ago tech friend assisted me access my DCS-910 using dyndns.org. It was free and worked great. I guess it went away when they started charging for a basic account.
Is there an easy way to access a camera without using dyndns even if it involves putting in an IP address instead of a convenient domain name? I would just like to see at least one of my cameras in a browser off-site. If I have to pay $20/year for dyndns I can but I would prefer not to if possible.
I've just got my DCS-2121 up and working. But i can't figureout how to access the direct URL for the camera?And is there a URL for still images aswell?I got an iPad and an iPhone, but i can't access the camera because it use Java.I had another DCS-900 where i could access IMAGE.jpg and Video.cgi. Is there anything like those for the DCS-2121?
I think I did everything per the manual, but I cannot access my camera over the internet thru [URL] website. It says that I have to check if I have enough bandwidth, or checked if my camera is not blocked by my router But I have a Dlink DIR 655 router where I have configured the Virtual server (port 80) as it is explain in the manual I also have a DHCP reservation that works fine (I can access the camera within my network) What should I do more now to finally access my camera from internet (this is for me the interest of havinf a network camera!)
Months ago i can enter in the camera interface by using 192.168.1.100 , its correct ip to enter in the cammera ? Now i dont know what is happening i connect the ethernet cable correctly from PC to the camera and i type in the browser : 192.168.1.100 but nothiung happen ?
I can access my DCS cameras directly using several iPhone apps such as IP Cam Viewer Pro. Is it possible to access the camera directly using a web browser (I have tried without success) e.g. do you need to use a specific port?Also, the DCS-942L has RTSP. I am not clear as to the difference between RTSP and HTTP streaming of video, any resource that clarifies with respect to D-Link cameras?
I have a new apple airport extreme wireless router and have done all the port forwarding and gave the camera a static address and cannot view my camera outside my network. I also have done the dyndns service also. I will note if I change the http port in the camera settings to say 82 I get a black screen and cannot view my camera till I switch back to port 80. Reason why I want to do this is I need to view my camera for more then 60 seconds.
My Dlink DCS-930 camera won't work over 3G. It works fine on my home WiFi network. When on 3G it shows the camera, click it, tries to connect but just keep saying connection timeout.
It used to work over 3G fine, nothing has changed to my network. I've rebooted the camera and router numerous times, it has the latest firmware, but still won't work. I'm logged into my dlink account fine. I have an Apple Time Capsule.
I have a camera set up in my kitchen and it works and I can view it in our house, on other computers or my iphone. But I can't view it from my work or anywhere outside our wireless range.It is a DCS-920. I have opened port 80, and checked it with a port checker and it says its open. I have bell as a provider with a 2 wire 2701hg-g modem.I read on here about someone else not having a gateway address or primary DNS. I don't know what to put in there. My camera address is 192.168.2.20.
I'm trying to programatically access the MJPG stream from my DCS-930L camera from outside of the DLINK software. Any correct URL for MJPG? Is there any way to view the website contents from this camera so I can hunt this down, or any technical documentation on it?
I recently bought 3 DCS-920 to monitor my home while at the office. However I can't seem to get the damned things to stream video using the dyndns service. I linked my router to the dyndns account and host service. I portforward the ports my cameras are assigned. Up to this point its all good, I can access the cameras and their settings pages while outside. However both the Java and ActiveX options for video streaming do not work. Even within the network, using their raw IPs to view the cameras the videos stream works.But putting in the hostname and port they are assigned brings up the camera page, but no video.I can only assume the ports the video and audio run on are seperate, as when I put one camera's IP in the DMZ host on my router, it works with the DNS. Unforunately I can only do that with 1, and I'd rather not do that at all.
I just installed my new DCS-2121 and enabled upnp to be able to watch the feed from my mobile.While being on vacation I noticed that the feed redirected to some strange Russian site,[URL]Back home now, I noticed that the /m/m/index.html file contains an iframe at the bottom, that redirects there. So someone (not me) has been able to alter the index on the wap site and add that at the end some way or the other.While Googling I found only one reference on a French forum, and other than the lack of newer firmware for the camera no direct reactions to this.I tried with a simple PUT to put the original file back, without the iframe at the bottom, but there I get a 403.
- When can we expect new firmware to fix this HUGE security problem?
- How to restore the original (and yes, I tried a factory reset, but that doesn't restore the html files it seems)
- How did they manage?
It seems from the config db that it's an OEM'ed alphanetworks.com camera with a lot more options that d-link put in there. Any input from them maybe, it seems they are writing the firmware?
I have configured my new DCS-2130 with periodic transfer of snapshots to my web page. filename prefix which is given as input in the MEDIA TYPE setup however gets extended with additional numbers resulting in unique filenames after every transfer. E.g. SNAPSHOT1320703730_3939.jpg where filename prefix is SNAPSHOT. This makes it challenging when an URL contains a reference to the same file name, and the file names changes over time. Which calls for name manipulating through script or similar.
I have a DCS-5220 cam and when I connect to the camera throught internet from a computer in a different city, I have a problem with the plug-in : quicktime plugin is used and impossible to find the plug-in of D'Link.so impossible to zoom or the change the motion detection parameters,.
I have successfully setup the camera at home, that I can use the mydlink website to view. But when I go to work and open my IE to view, it does not connect to the camera. Do I know to do something at the router to make it unblock or some sort?
I have just purchased a DCS 2121 (I assume that it is a similar model to the DCS 920 in US).I have this setup:
- Connected the DCS 2121 wireless to my Belkin Router with a fixed IP address. Firmware version 1.4 is installed on the camera.
- I have a Synology 209 NAS server with surveillance station that I have connected to the Camera.
I all works fine for 5 minutes to a couple of hours at which point the DCS 2121 loose connection to the Router and does not try to reconnect. If I turn the Cam on and off it will reconnect - and then loose connection again af a short time.This is totally frustrating since the purpose of the Cam is to work as a surveillance cam - it kinda loose its value by not being connected...
Any way to schedule a reboot of a DCS2102?I've got 3 of them here, and they are very good but every now and then they seem to stop writing to the storage. They haven't frozen cause I can still connect to them via a browser
I didn't get a reply with this question lost in another thread so I thought I'd try again. As far as I can tell the 2121 has an extremely weak microphone. I can barely here it 'live'.
The biggest problem is that when I record it the the Main Console program I hear nothing on playback. Does anyone have a DCS-2121 camera that records sound properly so it can be heard on playback using the standard D-Link software program?
I work for a company where we just put up a DCS-920. We're an IT company so always at our computers. I have everybody logged into the ip webpage to see who's coming in/out. Any function or similar to a windows gadget that can be made for the camera? So it's basically part of your windows desktop, don't have to open/close it all the time
Im having some problems changing my admin password on my DCS920
I know the default login is Login: admin / Password: "blank"
So I go into maintence, and there's an option to change the password.
old password newpassword confirm
So I leave the old password blank and type in my new password in the following 2 spaces. I click apply and a window pops up asking me to enter username and password. I just enter admin and leave the password blank. I hit ok, and everything seems to update ok. So i log out, and try to log back in.
A window pops up asking me for my password. I type in admin for my username, and my new password, and it wont work
I type leaving the username blank, and type in new password... WONT WORK
I type admin, and new password again.. WONT WORK
I try password with first letter capital.. WONT WORK
I try password with ALL CAPS... WONT WORK..
Basically it wont let me log in as admin anymore. I figure I may have typed the password wrong the first time so I reset the camera and try the process again.. SAME PROBLEM.
Am I doing something wrong in changing my password ?
I dont wanna leave my default admin login as admin/"blank" , but when I try and change the password, it wont let me log in again as admin.
LED is solid red (front) and solid blue (rear). try resetting thru the pinhole button but problem still the same. Camera not detected anymore on my network. I've try switching on and off, problem still there.
I need configuration of IPCAM dcs950g and dcs5220 for recording on a NAS which is DNS-313.My DNS-313 is connected in a network which can be access both locally and remotely, same as my both model of IPCAM. How should i type in the path textbox input?
everything was ok with my connexions, but, after a crash, when I run IE ou Chrome, I get the login screen of the 2 cameras, and I can enter my login en my password but after validation, nothing happens...This problem is only on my PC windows 7, and I can connect with all others stations LAN or WAN.All I remenber is that I have to delete a file in the system folder of my PC but what file ?
Have 13 DCS-920 Every few days a few random cameras will will hang/become unresponsive at random intervals. The cameras require that I unplug the cameras before they will respond. When the cameras are unresponsive I cannot access the camera via a web browser, the D-View Cam software, or the setup wizard. This is a problem as they are all mounted in positions requiring a ladder to access.
I have some connected via 802.11g and other hard wired over 10/100 cat-6 Ethernet cable.
I just bought a DCS-2130 for outdoor use (city landscape through my window in the nineteenth floor), and I'm trying to get it work during the daylight, but I'm having some problems.It seems like this camera can't handle direct sunlight, and in these situations the image gets blurry, even when I set the exposure to auto with max of 0dB in setup menu. Simply there's nothing I can do in this options menu to solve this problem.As the day passes by (and the sunlight gets weaker), the image gets better 'til the night, when it's perfect.What I need to know is if there is any way to setup it properly for daylight use. Is there possible to setup these exposure parameteres some other way, like editing an .ini file or something like that? Or this expensive camera simply can't handle this?
Just got this & set it up today. Wanted to buy a couple more in the next few days; but wanted to test out the D-Viewcam service. The application (D-Viewcam) is not able to find my camera.I have 'ticked' the uPNP & the forward; tried to disable it as well. No luck.
Camera 942l is on ver 1.1 D-Viewcam = v 3.2 Both reside on the same LAN
I'm able to view the camera on the browser. And on my phone.
On my website I want visitors to be able to see the picture from my DSC-2121 using the example [URL] without having to enter user name and password. To begin the URL with "http://user:passwd......." no longer works in IE.
So I have bought myself a DCS-2121 with firmware 1.05, 4630. Everything works fine except that the camera does not seem to adhere my settings on the snapshots page. At average, it seems that only one image is sent to my FTP-server regardless of the interval parameters.
The scheduled recording or scheduled snapshots is not working. I am running the camera standalone and using the web based configuration, storing the images or avi's on a ftp or samba server.
No matter what i specify, it records when triggered (by motion in my setup). All the other settings like, samba, ftp, video, motion detection, and so on is working fine - but I can't configure it to only record like between 10-16 every day. It records all the time - no matter what I select and what I enter in the schedule scheme.
