Port Forwarding For Your IP Camera

MobiWatcher Client will try to configurate portforwarding in your router so that your web cam is accessible from internet.  In most case, it can be automatically configurated.

However, if  portfowarding can not be set up in your router, you need to manually configurte it. Otherwise, your cam is not visible from outside.

If you have problem to config your router for port forwarding, please visit Portforwarding.com, which provides plenty of information for how to forward port in the router. 
DDNS Configuration

Dynamic Domain Name Service (DDNS) is  to map a dynamic ip address,which most home users are likely to be assigned by ISP, to a fix domain name, so that your camera is still accessible even the ip address changed.

MobiWatcher Client can help you register a free DDNS host with dynDns.org, however, if you router or ip camera does not support DDNS, you have to use static IP address with our system, even your ip address is not really static.

When the ip address changes, the camera is inaccessible till you click synchronize button throught our web site from a computer in the same network with  IP Camera .
