    Inside the your network, what is the IP address you’re using for the camera?

    I’m guessing it is something like 192.168.X.X This is an internal address space for using within your network.

    To access the camera from outside your network, the IP address to use will be different.

    From inside the network the camera in on, go to this website: http://whatismyipaddress.com/

    The IP address listed there is the one you’ll need to use.

    Make sure you also enter in the correct port that you setup when accessing the camera.
