D-link Camera

Once you get your cameras working inside your center. You will need to get some ports on your router opened up. Contact your local internet provider for this. Chances are you won't find anybody in the technical support department of your internet provider that can talk you past anything more advanced than getting your email. If you do get a wizzard consider yourself lucky and you will need to provide the information below on the pin-hole or port opening on your router. Specific ports need to be opened for the cameras AND for Timbuktu Pro to work. If no help comes from your internet provider, contact D-link directly for technical support I have found them to be friendly and knowledgable on their equipment. Once they get your cameras set up in-house they can help you with what to say your internet service to get your cameras working.

By default the ports used by the DCS-900 camera are as follows.

Web Server port: 80

Transfer Image port: 8481

The port settings can be found on the System Settings page by using a browser to interface with the DCS-900.

For using a static IP number you can change the IP address > Subnet Mask > and Default Gateway to match your network. on the same System Settings page.

Multiple Cameras: If you have more than one camera that you would like to be viewed over the Internet, then you will have to open a second Web Server port and Transfer Image port for each additional camera.

Finally, using your browser, go to the virtual server settings of your Gateway/Router and open these ports for the IP address of your camera.

For a detailed step-by-step of this go to the D-link Knowlege Database. Select your camera and look under the advanced features section.
