Applied to

All EverFocus’ IP Cameras

Answer

IP Camera port forwarding can be used when users need to access a certain IP camera from outside of the local network where the IP camera is connected to.
To enable the IP camera port forwarding function, you have to configure the port forwarding settings both on the IP camera and the router (UPnP-enabled). Please follow the steps below:

1. On the Setting page of the IP camera (Setting < System Setting < Network)
a. Set up a static IP for the IP camera. Type in the subnet mask, gateway and the DNS if provided by the Internet Service
Provider. Click the Apply button.
b. Enter the port numbers and check the Enable UPnP Port Forwarding box to enable the port forwarding function. Click the
Apply button.The default ports of all EverFocus’ IP cameras are as below. You can change the port numbers if necessary.
Be sure the port numbers setup on the router match the ones setup here.
HTTP: 80
RTSP: 554
HTTPS: 443

2. Set up the port forwarding settings on the router. Here we use D-Link’s router for example.

Please be noted that each router may look different in some ways, however, the concept of the port forwarding setting is the
same. For more details, please consult the manual of your router.

3. Open a browser and type in the IP address of the router, now you are able to access the IP camera from the Internet.
