MLIPCAMERA Plugin

Postby Clever1 » Wed Aug 04, 2010 11:12 am

I am having an issue viewing the cameras I have set up in the MLIPCAMERA plugin via my iPhone. While I am at home and connected to my Wifi they work so I am thinking it must be the IP Address. When I viewed the source with Safari on my computer the image the iphone was trying to load was from the 192.168.XXX.XXX address of my local home network which of course can not be located remotely. The iPhone web page gets the IP address of the camera from the MLIPCAMERA plugin so I was wonder if in order to view the camera remotely I have to put in my external IP to my home network and the forwarded port number in the MLIPCAMERA plug in? And if I do that will I have any issues with in the local network?

You would have to do the port forwarding trick or you could try to access the ipcamera images indirectly via the a call to

Thank you. I got the port forwarding to work with the Panasonic but the Linksys WVC80N I'm not having any luck with yet.
