We have a Y-cam Black CCTV camera that is connected to our network. It was initially connected by a LAN cable for the setup, and once that was done we left it to use the wireless connection. When using a cable, we can access the web interface fine, but when connected to wireless we can't get to it. The web address we use is
http://192.168.6.100:8000. This IP configuration is set up on the router side - the camera uses DHCP (though it does specify it's own port).
At first I thought the wireless wasn't working, but when we tested the alarm/movement sensor, email and FTP upload functionality while connected to wireless it worked perfectly. We have DDNS set up on our router, and accessing
http://oururl.dyndns.org:8000/ in a web browser shows the control panel fine. Also, using the iPhone app or simply using telnet to access it works just fine. However, explicitly using the IP address it doesn't work.
C:\Users\leonardc>telnet 192.168.6.100 8000 Connecting To 192.168.6.100...Could not open connection to the host, on port 8000: Connect failed
I'm unsure why this would happen - I can't see it being a firewall problem (all outbound from my PC is allowed - the default Windows setup). I'm fairly sure it's the router though - we have just put it in. Before we had a Netgear DG834G - we have replaced it for a Netgear DGND3700v2.
Here is a screenshot of the attached devices screen on my router, showing it is using 192.168.6.100
Here is a screen shot of the CCTV status page, showing it using 192.168.6.100
UPnP is turned off on the router completely.
This is the inbound rule in the firewall config on the router:
Wireless isolation is turned off - so it can't be this either.
I have changed the IP and Port to two completely new ones - restarted the router and the camera. Exactly the same problem aterwards: I can connect with the DynDNS address but not the local IP/Port combination. Running out of ideas here... Y-cam support are useless.
Unfortunately there is no logging on the camera and the logging on this router is pretty basic - there doesn't seem to be an option to increase it to a higher level unfortunately.
