I have two IP cams for montoring home security / watching the dog ( the usual things ).
Both are wireless powered off the mains and used to use the BVcam app on iPhone to be able to access and view them remotely.
However in past month both have stopped working remotely. and a lot of the ip cam apps have vanished.. google search seems to indicate a lot of it is to do with Chinese security settings and theres been a huge crackdown on the servers these apps seem to run through as theres 100's of forum posts about people having the same problem.
I can view the cams at home on local wifi but that's not much use.
so trying to set them up to access via web browser as been a painful and unsuccessful process so far.
for starters based on one camera... the superhub 3 indicates its on ip address 192.168.0.107/24 ( no idea what the /24 bit is
now at home if I put that ip address in the web browser it brings up ipcam webserver which I can log into and view ( again its local host only )
heres where it gets confusing.. looking at the ipcam network config page I now get something rather different.
it says ip address is 192.168.1.239
so how the heck do I access this remotely... what do I need to put in the port forward on the hub when I seemingly have 4 different IP addresses .
all I want to be able to do is open google on my phone, pop in an ip address and view the cam as the software no longer works and cannot be configured .
the cams also seem to be fixed too.
further check also reveals that the second cam currently on 192.168.0.17/24
also shows as the same on the ipcam web server as
so how can both cams have the same details.. totally confused
ive tried opening port 80 for both ips the 17 and 107 ones for each cam on the hub but it states I cant set up as port 80 already in use by the first cam.. also ran a port check and says port 80 is closed so that further adds confusion .. Help!
I believe what you are seeing with the addresses in the cameras being the same are the default settings if you use static IP addresses with them. From what you have described they are using DHCP addresses. Is there a box to tick for either DHCP or static address?
What you need to do is set static address in the cameras, say 192.168.0.201 and then 192.168.0.202, subnetmask of 255.255.255.0 and default gateway of 192.168.0.1. You then have to set in your hub port forwarding, 1) IP address 192.168.0.201 input port 8201 output port 80 and 2) IP address 192.168.0.202 input port 8202 output port 80.
Now from a web browser when not on your home network, enter <your VM Internet address> (will be something like 220.127.116.11) followed by :8201 for 1st IP camera or :8202 for second IP camera.

the cameras are Chinese amazon jobs.. ones a clock camera, the other a Bluetooth speaker camera.. ones made by corprit , the other listed as LXMIMI.. just to clarify with the port forwarding on the superhub , there is local and external start and finish. so which ones the 80 and which ones the 8201 or 8202
ok tried the above.. I can access locally on my laptop using 192.168.0.201:8201 , but checking show my ip. if I put that in 82.**.***.***:8201 .. nothing.. ive created port forward on vm hub ip address 192.168.0.201 , local port 8201 start and end, and external port 80 start and end, UDP protocol and enabled...
yup and followed above but doesn't find it and wont connect . also tested with port checker and says port 80 blocked closed. also checked port 8021 and same result.. port not open or not reachable. despite setting it up on the hub 3
