I bought ip camera for baby monitoring, but f-secure blocks it. It shows when I allow all traffic. How can I allow that camera safely? I know the IP of the camera and MAC, but the IP might change.
Did you try the following from your camera's manual:
4. Open Virtual Server Ports to Enable Remote Image Viewing
Follow these steps to configure your router’s Virtual Server settings
1. Click Enabled.2. Enter a different name for each entry.3. Enter your camera’s local IP Address (e.g., 192.168.0.120) in the Private IP field.4. Select TCP for HTTP port, and TCP for 5556 - 5559 ports.5. If you are using the default camera port settings, enter 80 into the Public and Private Port section, click Apply.6. Scheduling should be set to Always so that the camera images can be accessed at any time.
Hi @tireple ,
I moved your post to home security as it seems you are using that kind of product.
Could you confirm the exact product and version you are using?
Do you know the protocol and ports used by your IP camera? Could you give us more information about this hardware?
I use F-Secure Client Security version 11.50 for win 8.1.
IP camera is D-Link DCS-932L Cloud Camera. I don't know the port. I know IP and mac. Maybe I can find the port somehow but how i put it to F-secure? I open port? May some intruder use the port or what. Can you help me with these information I gave.
As you are indeed using coporate product, I moved the thread where it belongs.
I found the folloing which might help you figure out the firewall settings needed :
Also concerning F-secure firewall settings you can refer to the 2 following articles:
Services and ports will be different but the processus processus will be similar.
I should open port 80 but it does not work.
"Port Settings - Most ISPs do not open port 80 (a DCS-932L default video transfer port) for their residential customers, the DCS-932L has the ability to use a different port by changing the http port for its video streaming. Any unused ports can be used such as port 800, 801, etc. Remember that if the DCS-932L was behind a router, you would need to forward that port to the DCS-932L's IP Address. When accessing the camera, you would need to type the camera's IP Address and followed by the port number (for example http://192.168.0.20:800)."
I red that Ip cameras are hard to install but F-secure has make this even harder. I did not have any problems with windows firewall...,
There is information how to open port for netgear. Does that information help you?
I tried the http://community.f-secure.com/t5/End-point/Setting-firewall-rules-in-F/m-p/17020/highlight/true#M751
and used port 80, 135, 800 and it did not work
