Linksys Router Configuration for Remote Access

This section describes the steps of setting up a Linksys router for remote access of Air Cam.

Step 1. Obtain the Local IP Address of Your Computer
Step 2. Configure Router
Step 3. Obtain the Public IP of Your Router
Step 4. Test Your Connection

Step 1. Obtain the Local IP Address of Your Computer

Windows XP users, you can get the local IP address using the instructions here.  Please skip to Step 2.

Windows Vista/7/8 users, you can get the local IP address using the instructions here.  Please skip to Step 2.

Mac users, from the Apple menu, go to System Preference..., and select Network.

Select Airport (or Ethernet, if you use wired connection) from the left panel, and take note of the IP address to the right.  Write down this address, as you will need it to configure the router. 

In our example, the Mac IP address is 192.168.1.67 (yours might be different).

 

Step 2. Configure Router

Please visit this link.  Skip to the section "Open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape", and follow its steps.  At the "Port Range" section, enter the following:

  • Application: AirCam
  • Start: 1726
  • End: 1726
  • Protocol: Both
  • IP Address: (the IP address you obtained from Step 1 above)
  • Enabled: YES

Make sure you save the settings.

 

Step 3.  Obtain the Public IP of Your Router

Your network carrier assigns an IP address to your router.  This address can change from time to time.  You will need to obtain this address.

Open a browser window on the computer where Air Cam runs, and go to http://whatismyip.org.  This site shows your router's
IP address.

 

Step 4.  Test Your Connection

Now you are ready to test out your remote connection.  First, start up Air Cam on your computer.  Then, start Air Cam on your mobile device, and select IP Connection.  Enter the router IP address you obtained from Step 3. 

Congratulations!  You are now viewing live feed from your Mac on your mobile device via remote access.
