D-Link DCS Network Camera :: DCS-942L / Ports To Open For Remote Viewing?
Mar 27, 2013
I have four DCS-942L cameras and a 2012 model Airport Express router. I cannot view live video from outside the router in any fashion other than mydlink.com's poor quality time-limited forwarded video. Here is what I have done.I have manually mapped four TCP ports through the router for accessing the cameras' web servers. This works--I can access the camera settings that way, albeit with NO SSL support (dammit). So, fundamentally, port forwarding works on this router. The "live view" accessed through the camera's web server does not work, though.I mapped port 554 on each camera to ports on the WAN side of my router, TCP and UDP.I have made sure that the external ports set on the camera under "Enable UPNP port forwarding" are the same as the external ports set on my router. (Otherwise the web server wouldn't work from outside.)When I access the mydlink web site from inside the LAN, I can view my video. When I run netstat -n -p tcp, I can see connections open to the local 192.168.0.* addresses of my cameras, so it is connecting via the LAN.If I connect to the Internet outside my LAN, and use the mydlink web site, I get the forwarded, mini-sized video with a 60 second limit. netstat reveals that connections are being attempted to the INTERNAL ip addresses of my cameras, which of course cannot succeed from outside. In addition, if I try to stream video using QuickTime Player from outside, using the URL [URL], the player connects, then says "waiting for stream" and then "switching transports." It gets stuck there and does not proceed. On the LAN, using the local IP address, I can stream video just fine.
Any way to change this?What other ports do I need to open to make the video stream work? I tried mapping ports 5556-5559 to one of my cameras, but that did not work. Also, I have four cameras and need to be able to map to all of them for this to work.The AirPort Express supports "NAT Port Mapping Protocol" which, from my limited research, is not the same as UPNP. How to successfully viewed video from outside a router without using UPNP?I have scoured these forums considerably and have read some success stories using UPNP. From the DCS-942L manual, it seems like I should be able to set up manual port forwarding in some fashion to make the video stream work. Clearly, though, some auxiliary connection is being attempted and the client cannot get through to the camera. Is it possible to even pick this statically, or is the port always dynamically chosen by the camera and therefore absolutely must be set up on the router using UPNP? If I can't make static port forwarding work, then these cameras are headed to camera heaven soon.
I ran the setup CD and can access my camera from inside my local network. When I try to access it from outside, I can access the camera fine but the video stream is black. I tried RTSP ports 554, 2080 and 5632 with no success (of course I port forwarded the dsl modem as well). My dsl modem is a westell 7500 and my ISP is frontier communications. I contacted their support tech and at first he ran me through the exact port forwarding sequence I had already done on the modem. He then went away for a while and came back to say that I need to upgrade to their fixed internet address service. I understand dynamic DNS and don't think this is an issue because I can contact the camera OK, I just don't get the video through (black screen). Another issue is that the camera is reporting PPPOE 'failed'. The support tech has given me two PPPOE user names and passwords but neither work. The support tech said that they do require PPPOE.
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.
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.
I seem to be struggling to connect more than 4 cameras to my (ISP-supplied) modem/router by Netgear CGD24N via WPS. I'm on my 5th camera now (already have 3x 930L and 1x 942L) but the newest 942L just won't connect to the network at the moment and there's definitely no faults here as I swapped cameras today at the local retailer (and got an A3 942L!).I've even tried connecting the camera to my wireless extender (Netgear WN3000RP) but no luck there.
So far it has only worked twice for short periods of time (enough for me to configure the cameras) but since then I can't actually get it working. I've got a couple of spare wireless routers lying around too and should be receiving a DIR-600 soon (from the Netgear promotion in Australia) which could be useful?
In have the 942l and the mydlink Lite app on the iPhone. I have recording set up on the camera capturing in .mp4 format. I can view the camera on the phone fine. I can go the menu and select playback. I see the date of my recordings and the time. Each individual file is listed as you can see.
When I select any of these files, I get a black screen.
Do I need to change the rtsp URL? Anyone have this working correctly on the iPhone? If so, can you share your settings?
I just purchased 2 cameras and have one set up. Firmware V 1.12
Works great on my android phone and connects fairly quick. When I try to see the camera image on my PC with windows 7 64 bit, I log into my d-link and it shows the camera name on left side of screen, then says Java run time environment not installed.I uninstalled java 5 times and re installed both 32 and 64 bit but keeps coming back as not installed. Camera is set up wirelessly through a Belkin router, so far no EZ config
i bought wireless camera dcs942l everything works but my sd card 32 gb is not recording the camera is not recording in my sd card i formated sd card still not recording camera works good quality picture network working but not recording on my sd card and i can not record in my computer
Has anybody gotten the FTP option to work with this camera? And if so how did you set up the path to point to the ftp share. The instructions say one thing but that one thing doesn't work. FTP is setup locally on my NAS box which does work. Or is this another one to add to the Firmware which list?
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?
It didn't fill it up completely, it stopped at the 200 meg free mark, however I have cyclic checked (which btw is not mentioned anywhere in the manual). I assumed this option would cycle by deleting the oldest file to continue recording.
I installed my first IP camera. Things seem to have went ok with the installation andd router. I can view the video live from mydlink.com.I've tried the dlink software, but it can't find the camera so I can control recording options, ftp, etc. i've also tried 3rd party software that can't find my camera.I'm fairly internet savvy, but do not have access to my router admin atm. (cable company installed their own) My home ip address is supposed to be dynamic. I thought that would cause me problems viewing from mydlink.com, but it hasn't so far.
In my Ipad (I have Dlink+), I can only see 1 minute of the Cameria 942L...the faq says that I need a conection witn Upnp.I have a Cisco EA2700 and I check the box of Upnp,,but I still cant see my camera from more than a minute,, then I have to reload.
I have latest 3.3 dlink d-view cam software and a dcs-932l ip camera.I noticed the remote streaming and remote recorded viewing (ports 5150 and 5160) as part of the server software. I know if i browse to my ip of my pc it allows me to view both services on html via windows plugin visual basic addon. My question is what iOS app and Mac OS X app will allow me to remotely monitor my dviewcam softwares network service for both live view and recorded view.
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 have a setting where we are using some DCS930l cameras connected to a 2003 server. We are using the remote viewer and can see one camera but not the others. We have 5 cameras. We try to drag and drop the other cameras, but nothing shows up. Only the 1.
I have this problem i can't open my ports on my D-link 524, i have opened about 6 ports so that my XBOX 360 works with a open nat, i have also set the DMZ to my xbox's IP which is static btw, my PC is also static. This is how i basically tested and it told me that it was not opened. I went into:
192.168.0.1 -> Advanced -> Virtual Servers ->
Private IP: 192.168.0.100 ( because i was testing it on the computer - if it were 360 it would be .141 )
Both UDP and TCP at port 3074
Apply -> Then restarts modem/router i waited for 2 minutes before turning them on again, i turned router on first because some guide told me to do that.
I did exactly what they did on portforwarding.com then i opened up portchecker and typed in 3074 and pressed check -> This port is NOT opened. What is wrong? This is how my net is set up.
I have my 942L set up for continuous recording. When I look at the files, the camera will record between 20 and 55 seconds, end that file and start another. The next file then starts between a few seconds and as much as 40 seconds later leaving a gap in the video recoding. The file sizes are all different and the amount of record time is different for each file.
Also, about 80% of the time, the time increments a few seconds on a playback and then stops updating even though the video is longer.

opening of some ports 25565 for minecraft so i can host games. i have try so solve this by my self but with zero progress. did enter the advanced setup and then i pressed on the NAT category and then i pressed on the ADD button and enter the following" [URL] and then i used a port checker to look if it worked but did not work?
I just got the camera today, looks good, works good, at least so far.. BUT I was SURE this camera had a battery and charge function!? What's the point of having this camera if I can't place it say inside my car or in the garage (where it needs to be hidden, alas I can't use any cords!)?
My company deals in a video conference software which requires certain ports to be open to work correctly, including tcp and udp ports. Clients who want to test / purchase have different kind of network setup. I usually tell them to open those ports require by the software on their end. How do i ensure if the port range required by my software is open once I am at their location. I have installed a few network scan tools but not sure what ip do i scan. Should I scan my server's ip once I am at their location and connected ? or should I scan their gateway ?
I am working on a request to clean up alot of excess cabling in one of our IDF's. I noticed that many of the connections have no lights on them and probably haven't been used in a long while. I would like to know if there is a CLI command I can run on the Cisco 3750 switch will allow me to bring up a list of ports which have not seen any activity for a period of time - for example, 30, 60, or 90 days.
I have a Linksys E1200 router.My problem is I have installed a camera system that allows remote viewing.I cannot access the system through the E1200 I am not very knowledgeable in net working.What do I need to do to access the DVR from a remote computer?
Anyone using it to save videos from their cams? Are you using Synology NAS? Am interested and want to hear from people qualified to discuss NAS. Qualified means you are currently using NAS or have thoroughly researched it to the point you have made your purchase decision for the most part.
