Answer

You cannot add an IP camera using the IP address with its forwarded port to other Genie XMS servers.

Genie XMS features port forwarding function, which can forward a port to the added IP camera. Users can then access the IP camera directly from the Internet by typing the IP address of Genie XMS with forwarded port in the address field http://xxx.xxx.xxx:[port number] (xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of Genie XMS). However, if you want to add this IP camera to another Genie XMS server, you cannot use http://xxx.xxx.xxx:[port number] as its IP. Instead, you have to use the IP address of the camera itself if you want to add this camera to other Genie XMS servers.

Let’s take a look at the following example, EZN3340 is added to this Genie XMS server (say Genie XMS A) and is assigned with a port “20001”.

If you want to add this EZN3340 camera to another Genie XMS server (say Genie XMS B), you will have to use the IP address of the IP camera (192.168.31.217), instead of xxx.xxx.xxx:20001 (xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of Genie XMS A; while “20001” is the port forwarded by Genie XMS A).
