Help with programming a pin hole in the RG
Edited by BeeBeeSA on Jan 21, 2011 at 7:31:59 AM

I have a security camera I am trying to set up so I can access it remotely from outside my network.  I have the camera working on the network wirelessly.  The inside wireless static IP is 192.168.1.100, subnet 255.255.255.0, and default gateway is 192.168.1.254.  The preferred DNS is the RG or 192.168.1.254 and the secondary is 255.255.255.255.  I set the HTTP: port in the camera to 30000 and the data port to 30999.  To access inside my network I put 192.168.1.100:30000 and I get the log in page for the camera and all works as designed.

 

The problem is when I try to set up a pin hole in the user defined area of the firewall.  I'm not sure exactly how to do this.  I have tried port range 30000 to 30000, 30999 to 30999, I tried mapping 30000 to 30999, and 30999 to 30000.  When I type my RG's public IP (76.233.XXX.XXX) followed by :30000 or :30999 in IE all I get is page cannot be displayed.  What am I doing wrong?  Does the RG have to be reset after each change for the firewall settings to take effect?

 

TIA for any ideas/solutions.....

Thanks a bunch SJ!!  I did as you instructed and here is what I see now....

 

Current Settings: Custom

Device Allowed Applications Application Type Protocol Port Number(s) Public IP
Static IP:100.168.1.100SecurityCamera-TCP30000
76.233.XX.XX
   TCP30999
76.233.XX.XX

 

But I still can't get to the camera using 76.233.XX.XX:30000 or :30999.  I did reset the RG but no go.  I'm stumped.  The camera being wireless and static IP should make no difference correct?

What brand and model of security camera is this?  It may use additional ports, we'll have to try to look it up.

Are you trying to access the camera's public IP from within your LAN? If so, that would require loopback, and I don't think the 2Wire is capable of that, unless there's a firmware upgrade I'm not aware of.

I was told to access the camera remotely (away from my house) I type my public IP for the RG 76.233.XX.XX:30000 or the port number I want to get to.  I just found out a few minutes ago that I can't test this if I am on my network at home.  It has to be tested from a different network so I am getting a co worker to try.

Static IP:100.168.1.100SecurityCamera-TCP30000
76.233.XX.XX
   TCP30999
76.233.XX.XX

Sould have been 192.168.1.100.  Boy do I feel stupid.....

 

Thanks everybody!!
