I have 4 internet cameras around our property and they work fine. The problem is I can not get them on my laptop when I am away from the property, does anybody have any answers?

Are the cameras accessible from outside your home network anywhere? Like a neighbors house?

Is your home network set up so the cameras can be accessed externally? You typically have to open some ports for a device inside your home network to be accessed from outside your network.

I'm no guru for sure, but it sounds like you would need to have a computer on sight at all times that the cameras are hooked up to. You can then remote into the on sight computer from another laptop. You can use "Remote Desktop Connection" to do that. You would need a static (one that doesn't change) IP address on the on sight computer. When I'm at our place on AC, I remote to my office computer in the US all the time. It's as if I were sitting at the desk in my office while sipping a cold Belikin. grin

Just been sent this, need more help.

Hi John

Thipaya.tvg.cc:9988 is not online.
It could be your configuration, router, internet �

I am guessing that Thipaya.tvg.cc:9988 is the web address you connect to in order to see your internet cameras.

When they say it is not online - they're basically acknowledging the same problem you initially reported in this thread, which is you can't see your cameras outside of your home network.

[Linked Image]

This image (if it displayed), is what I found searching for other tvg.cc web sites. It was a link to someone's personal web cams login page. Do you normally see this image prior to connecting to your internet cameras? I think you should see something like it.

What Loansum-Al K mentioned above is also correct. Do you own more than one computer - i.e. one besides your laptop? The cameras are typically connected (via the network, wifi or with a cable) to a computer. That computer is then set up to be seen by the outside world:

- have to open ports on your router to allow that computer to be seen by the outside world.
- since you connect to a URL (web address) of Thipaya.tvg.cc:9988 to see your cameras, that means either tvg.cc or some other service is providing you with a static IP address, OR they run a service known as Dynamic DNS - where when your IP address changes (which can happen any time your service provider decides to do it, but also power outages), something on the internet gets updated to tell it that Thipaya.tvg.cc:9988 is at a new IP address.


If this is too much of a pain, or you are a patient person, I'll arrive on June 6th and am staying @ Oasis del Caribe and would be happy to help ya =)

* my apologies if it appears I just repeated myself... reading back, I'm not sure that I added any more information. well besides the picture of course =)
