Default Snake Eyes Cam...

Almost had heart failure. On my daily check of the Lake Watch page i saw the snake eyes image and for a minute it looked like the broads were frozen over and snow covered! I am definitely NOT ready for that!!!!!!:eek

Default Repairs

We were fixing the wall on which that SnakeEyes attaches. Right now she is sitting on the railing. To make matters worse... I replaced my DSL modem today and SnakeEyes picture sending fails. The router is not letting me forward the port. Fairpoint has crippled admin access to the router.

I may have to hook up the broken one tomorrow and send this crippled one back.

Anyone know how to port forward a Comtrend router? (it wants an IP address and none I try will work.) Very frustrating evening.

I can probably help if you get stuck (I'm here on the Island).

Good luck. I could never get port forwarding to work right on these comtrend routers.

Default Mysteriously working

I woke up to Snake Eyes sending pics. I also did a port forward for my dynamic DNS to work. This lets me login to my cam remotely to change settings.

If the camera is truly pushing pics out via FTP or whatever, you shouldn't need any port-forwarding setups. Even DynDNS technically shouldn't need port forwarding, but obviously remote login does.

Many consumer ISP's tend to block or strangle common ports like 25 (smtp), 80 (web), 443 (https) to prevent customers from hosting servers or having compromised hosts popup on their network.

If you haven't already, it's usually recommended to remap the http port of your cameras to something else like 8888 or 5168 (random). Anything above 1024.
