TZO Support - When is an IP address 'WAN' or 'LAN', and what is the difference?
Throughout most TZO or network Support documentation, you will find references to WAN IP address and LAN IP address. Please note that - in a majority of installations - WAN IP and LAN IP are not the same thing.
The Wide Area Network (WAN) address is given to you by your Internet Service Provider. The WAN IP is simply your "Connection" or "Internet" IP address. All of your local network PCs, servers and cameras can "share" the same Internet IP through features built into every router, but only the router itself "holds" or controls the WAN IP address. In most cases you have 1 WAN IP address given by your Internet provider. You can confirm your WAN IP by logging into your router
Local area network (LAN) addresses are yours. On your LAN, each of your server(s) will have it's own personalized IP address - typically numbered 192.168.x - 192.168.1.100, 192.168.1.101, etc. LAN IPs are "private" behind your router.
Note that your router usually has 2 IP addresses - one for the uplink out to the Internet, and the second IP is a LAN IP address.
For successful "remote" viewing or connections, you will need to configure your network (see Port Forwarding topics) but to do that you will at least need to know what your WAN IP is and what your LAN IP address(es) are.
