Hi Geeks to go members!

I have a problem currently with viewing an i.p cam over dynamic DNS.


Bt home hub 3

i.p cam (wanscam aj-xxx)


port forward setup for i.p cam

Protocol: Port: Range: Translate To:
tcp 99 / 99
tcp 4000 / 4000

firewall allows this, DDNS "allowed" on my router, i can use the connection fine on LAN definitely connected.

The issue:

Using no-ip.com as my DDNS supplier my dns does not resolve to my routers external i.p?

Tracert to briggscam.no-ip.org - completes fine.

Tracert to routers external i.p address - times out constantly.

canyouseeme.org - ports 80/443/99 and 4000 all appear to be closed ports but doing netstat "established" i can see these open> maybe some sort of security thing from bt??

I can't seem to log into my router remotely either. It's just an annoying little one this, as we have upgraded from Sky to Bt this remote access feature has been stripped, is there anything at all i'm missing? should there be something i can double check? an internal-only i.p cam is pretty useless to me i need this for viewing away from home :)

If there's anymore information needed, please let me know and i'll try to provide it.

My bloody firewall!

I added the external i.p address. (I know, i know it might just help that one Andy)

Just adding this for other member's who may have made that same mistake.
