Q. How to set UPnP and Alternate Port in the camera?A.
When enabled, the Camera's Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) feature allows an UPnP-enabled computer to easily detect the Camera. The Camera's UPnP feature is disabled by default. If your computer is UPnP-enabled, then click the checkbox next to UPnP.
If you want the Camera to be able to use an alternate port for communications, click the checkbox. Then enter the port number you want in the Port Number field (from 1024 to 65534, the default is 1024). If you already have a Web Server on your LAN, then you should enable the Alternate Port and use this port number instead of port 80.
To these settings, follow these procedures:
Access the Web Utility, launch Internet Explorer, and enter the Camera's IP address in the Address field. (If there are no DHCP servers available, the camera automatically defaults to 192.168.1.115.) Then press Enter. Enter username and password - admin is the default.
Select the Setup tab, and then click on the Basic.
Apply settings to take effect.
If your WVC210 is connected to NAT router, you need to forward or open the port number you set on the camera (e.g. 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-in 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-in http:// (LAN IP address of the camera):(Port Number).
