Hi i am trying to setup a ip camera on a huawei hg569b router and have a static ip address setup by spark and had no problem when it was setup with a d-link router but after changing to fibre we lost our static ip but have now got it back , from what i believe i have setup the port fowarding correctly and eventually found a open port and when i ping internal and external ip they seem fine .

 

I can access the router and view ip cam using the (local) internal ip address but cannot access router or ip cam using static ip address which leads me to believe that the static ip has not been set up to router properly.

 

There is very little support from spark for this router and very little on youtube , if anyone has any ideas or knowledge about these routers or this problem your help or info would be most appreciated.cool

Slightly Off topic but you should be fully aware of the consequences of setting up a port forward to an IP camera. I would never do this under any circumstances as the security risks of this are very significant.

A Spark Static IP is setup on the Spark network, there is no modem/router config required. The Static is on the connection, not with/on the modem/router.

When you say 

 

I can access the router and view ip cam using the (local) internal ip address but cannot access router or ip cam using static ip address which leads me to believe that the static ip has not been set up to router properly.

 

Are you trying to access the external IP from the huawei hg569b network?  The reason I ask is the router may not have loopback capabilities.  You should test with an external network ie. your phone using data (not wifi onto the hg569b).

 

I am guessing the reason sbiddle says not to open the camera up externally is due to the security risk and vulnerabilities this equipment can have for others to login and view the feed.  It would always be wiser to use a firewall of some kind to only give access to your IP address, on your phone this is dynamic of course...

I would get a device that supports OpenVPN on the internal side, then VPN from your phone to the OpenVPN box, then from there connect to your IPCamera. There are plenty of OpenVPN clients for Android and IOS devices that means you securely access your IP Camera rather than port forwarding it to the interwebs.

Concur, VPN to home network, or alternatively use a security camera that uploads to a cloud provider.
