*SOLVED* IP camera TV-IP110W port forward DD-WRT & ZyXELport forward DD-WRT & ZyXEL

MrTickle 630 90 March 2, 2012 at 10:30 AM
Had time warner cable, and everything worked well...

TV-IP110w wireless Trendnet camera, ran it through a Netgear router with DD-WRT firmware.

just added Fiber internet through Cincinnati Bell, and they make it mandatory to have a ZyXEL wireless/router. My port forwarding does not work any more with my camera, and I am told through my IP Cincinnati Bell does not let anyone open port 80 on their network.

Anyone have any ideas on how I can continue to view my IP camera from outside my network?

i am quick to respond and try things, as I am at a complete loss on what to do

forward port xxxx (where xxxx is a number > 1024 but < 49152) to 80 (assuming your camera is listening on 80)

The hit -- The given link is broken -- which forwards to http://camera:80

what would be idle is to turn my ZyXEL VSG1432-B101 into just a modem and turn of all router "thinking"

when i try what you suggested i get a "External port range not valid 1025 - 80"

It looks like you're trying to forward a range but you only need to forward one... it's basically a one-to-one mapping where you hit public:1025 from the internet and the router sends it to private:80

Incidentally, you should probably move up to a higher port because windows likes to take the ones just above 1024 (but technically they should be free for any unprivileged user and windows would take 1026 and up)

A lot of people use 8080 for http traffic when they need to avoid 80.

i read online as well, about 8080, but got the same error on it as well.

I am trying now to use DMZ and just point it to my original router down stream, and have it act like it did before we switched services.... once again, no luck

Right now, I'm configured like this...

|
| (fiber)
|
DSLAM
|
| (VDSL2 over phone line)
|
ZyXel modem
|
| (ethernet - 192.168.200/24)
|
Netgear router
| | | | |
| | | | | (ethernet - 192.168.1/24)
| | | | |
everything else

thinking DMZ, and sending it to 192.168.200.20 would just make it act like normal, but again, it doesnt

DMZ is likely to cause other problems for you. It isn't clear if you were trying to forward a single port or a range of ports. In the configuration page, (see page 56 of the manual) [zyxel.com] you specify a range on internal and external ports denoted by start and end. Enter the same numbers in the start and end boxes (external 8080 internal 80). If you still get the error, try putting 1025 in for the external range (in both boxes).

You should be able to configure the gateway in bridged mode and use your netgear ddwrt router, but this will take some effort. You would have to configure the netgear to do the PPPoE authentication and may have to input other parameters about the connection. It would be a good idea to write down all the parameters on the relevant gateway config pages. You may have to call them to get the PPPoE parameters if they weren't provided to you in writing (they should have been). Read pages 77-85 in the manual.

That has to be the longest manual I've ever seen for a residential gateway at over 400 pages, but it does go into a lot of technical detail and explain a lot of things better than most.

If you don't configure the zyxel as a bridge, it may be advisable to trun off the dhcp server on the netgear and connect a lan port not a wan port to the zyxel. Otherwise, you would need to forward ports on it too or make other changes like disabling NAT.

I suggest changing the port the camera uses to a port your provider will let you forward. Almost all ip cameras allow you to change the interal port - you need this to be able to view multiple cameras.

Page 80,83-85 on user guide for VSG1432 explained how to change the modem/router into modem only (bridge) mode. However VDSL2 is a new tech. and I found no info on dd-wrt or tomato has pppoe for VDSL2.

Since VSG1432 router has port forwarding and DMZ plus other basic wifi router function. If there is no specific need for DD-WRT maybe you should consider to move everything to the new router and retire the netgear.

PPPoE is PPPoE. You should be able to make it work this way if you want, anything specific to the dsl type is still configured on the ZyXel. The MTU is the only other setting I get in tomato for PPPoE other than credentials and stay connected / connect on demand and the default mtu should be fine. It wouldn't be a bad idea to make a note of all the settings in case something gets messed up and you need to revert back.

While you could retire the netgear, that decision depends on features you want and your satisfaction with the ZyXel. If you continue to use the netgear, I would either use bridging and make it handle the PPPoE -OR- make it function as a switch / access point only (lan port to zyxel and dhcp server off).

Also, I don't see a point in changing the port the cam uses. That just makes lan access more of a pain.


OP, please post screenshots of the info you entered into the forwarding page and the error that pops up

first attached picture i tried doing 8080 and forwarding to 80, when going to http://www.canyouseeme.org/ I have no luck seeing 8080 or 80.

when I try to change the port on the camera, it crashes. i can not connect to it any more:
it was 192.168.1.35, and when i try to go to it it times out, and i have reset the whole camera, so that doesnt seem to be an option.

when i called for help the guy told me:

1: we do not let port 80 open, so you need another port. "we are an open network"
2: if i want help he can point me to 2 places, both places will charge me.

#1 you are a liar: http://www.cincinnatibell.com/cus...reline.pdf
See 3.2.1 ("Section 3, subsection 2, part 1" if you want to be a dick to the CSR). Port 23 is blocked bidirectionally, and port 25 is blocked outbound to prevent you from running a spam relay. All other traffic is completely unrestricted. ---- again, i wish i had this while i was on the call, but i knew he had no idea what he was talking about

here are screen shoots of bridge mode (thanks for the manual and reference!!)

Would i have to delete the 3 items already in there to get bridge to work? not sure what all needs checked in the WAN config either...

looks like i might be getting somewhere, thanks for the help

i'll wait to play when i get my fiber.
i know on zoomtown i can outbound 25 and 80 is open. i get my full 10 meg download speed and was hoping for the 20 with fiber. maybe i'll just keep this until they force me over

the cheap camera i bought had the check here for auto settings. it also had a program to find it on the network. i let it find the settings and then changed the port. i looked up the ip through lan stats so i could log in and change but went back to 80 since it was open
