More importantly, your router shouldn't be setup to show the admin page to remote access users. There are security issues associated with doing that, not worth getting into here, but I'd suggest disabling remote admin/config access on the router. Doing that might also solve the port-forwarding problem because now the router won't try to respond to Port 80 for remote requests and should pass that through to the camera if everything else is setup correctly.
Thanks. I had set it up changing the port from the start so I've got a random port number all set up. Looking at my ddns options in this modem it appears that I can only use dyndns or something called TZO. I was hoping the port forwarding with be a go around. I'll check the remote access as you suggest. Thanks again.
