Could someone please help me.  I have a Mac and a Foscam.   I use a HG659 router.


I connected the foscam and can see it fully functioning on my internal network.


I would like to view this remotely so I have done the following.


  • Portforwarding to 8090 - if i test this on "canyouseeme" port is open and can be seen
  • Set up a No-IP account 
  • Set up the camera to 8090

However, when i test all settings I cannot see the camera/view it remotely.


Any suggestions please?

Are you connecting to the camera locally using a web browser or a specific application?

Can you connect to the camera over Wi-Fi at home network? Phone app

We used a foscam Wi-Fi camera on our home network as baby can until 2 years ago.

Didn't have any issues with PC mac IPhone Android.

You have to test from outside your network as HG659 does not support hairpin NAT.

This thread is a couple of months old, and the OP doesn't seem to have returned at all since posting, but port forwards to CCTV cameras are frequently an extremely bad idea security wise. Use of a VPN would generally be far more secure.
