A. Remote Accessing the WVC210
Check the IP address of the camera. This should be displayed on camera's LCD.
Open your browser and type the IP address of the camera (for example, http://192.168.146.26) on the address field then hit Enter. A password box should appear. Type admin for the username and password, then hit enter. The welcome screen of the Web-based utility appears. Select Setup to configure the camera.
Click the Setup tab to change the configuration. Select Fixed IP Address as the Configuration type. Assign a valid LAN IP address and your DNS number.
Still under Setup, scroll down and check Enable Alternate Port. Assign your remote management port on the Port Number from the range of 1024-65534. The default port is 1024. Then click Apply.
Note: If your WVC210 is connected to NAT router, you need to forward or open the port number you set on the camera (for example, 1024) in the Port Range forwarding page of the router.
You should now be able to access the camera remotely. To do this, launch your browser on the remote computer and type http:// (WAN IP address of your Router):(Port Number) then hit Enter. When you login next time locally to this router, you need to type http:// (LAN IP address of the camera):(Port Number).
