Remotely Access Your Linksys Wireless-G IP Camera (Step 4 - fixing blocked ports)
If you can already remotely view your Linksys camera, you can skip this document entirely.
You should follow this tutorial if your ISP "blocks inbound port 80". Another scenario where this tutorial can help is if you are installing a second camera on-site (and therefore your port 80 is taken by the first camera).
In either case - blocked port 80 or a second camera - this tutorial's goal is the same. Follow these steps and you will have configured your camera to run on a non-default web port, for example http://YourName.MyLinksyscam.com:1024/. Lastly, you will configure a TZO web relay which TZO will host at "www.YourName.MyLinksyscam.com". When TZO received connections to YourName.MyLinksyscam.com, the visitor's browser will be automatically redirected to http://YourName.MyLinksyscam.com:1024/.
To follow this tutorial, you must have followed each of the this series' 3 previous tutorials (See Tutorial Requirements/Dependency).
1Camera Configuration - Configure Alternate Web Access Port
Login to your camera, choose Options from the left menu, then scroll the page down until you see settings for "Alternate Web Access Port".
Set Alternate Web Access Port to Enabled, then set Port Number to 1024. Press Apply, and your camera configuration is now complete.
Note: If you are already using port 1024 on another device, just set this camera to use port 1025, and take a moment to revisit the previous tutorial and create a Forwarding rule for port 1025.
2TZO Website - Login
As a convenience, you can visit your TZO account settings and create an easy-to-remember web relay which redirects a regular domain name (www.YourName.MyLinksyscam.com) over to the alternate port version, http://YourName.MyLinksyscam.com:1024/
If you find that using http://YourName.MyLinksyscam.com:1024/ works just fine, you can stop now.
3Select MANAGE from the Control Panel Tab
Select MANAGE from the Control Panel Tab. You will now see a screen similar to the one shown below for trialuser.tzo.net
Locate the WEB FORWARDING section and select ENABLED
4Select Which Port To Relay To
You now want to enter the URL and port in the URL Forward To field. For this example, our domain name is newtrialuser.tzo.net, and our camera is on port 1024. So, we enter the FULL URL including the HTTP:// - so we enter: http://newtrialuser.tzo.net:1024 as shown below.
Select Normal Mode for the forwarding mode, and then select Permanent (301) for the Forwarding Type as shown below. Click Save Settings at the bottom when finished
5Completion and Testing
Using another Internet connection, you should be able to open a browser and connect to http://www.YourName.MyLinksyscam.com/ and this in turn will redirect your browser to http://YourName.MyLinksyscam.com:1024/
Using the TZO Web Forwarding is a great way to simplify and remember a domain name instead of a long URL with ports. You can disable the Web Forwarding at any time by going into the control panel and changing to DISABLED
