A VPN conneciton is the recommended best practice to access cameras remotely. But you could open up some port forwarding rules on the router to let through to the camera...
Depends how you set up the camera to some degree....Here I assume that we used the camera advanced setting to set an alternate HTTP port of 1024, so requests can come in for more than one camera on the same LAN (1024, 1025, 1026). If you arent using alternate ports, assume TCP 80 instead.
HTTP w/ MPEG4
HTTP w/ MJPEG
TCP w/ MPEG4
TCP w/ MJPEG
UDP w/ MPEG4
UDP w/ MJPEG
PVC2300 / WVC2300
Audio & Video=1024
Audio & Video=1024
Audio & Video=554
Video = 1024
In General terms, one would expect:
• If HTTP is selected the video/camera data will be encapsulated in HTTP packets
• If TCP/UDP is selected the video stream is via RTSP
But this will also depend on the CODEC used: • MJPEG uses port 80 for streaming video. • MPEG-4 uses port 554 for RTSP streaming
The xVC2300 does not determine the access protocol from camera WebUI, only what the settings are for MPEG4 or MJPEG access as you notice in the Video GUI. Its a dual stream dual codec camera so can do both at the same time. The SWVMS16 does allow the selection of the protocol used to access the camera. Have you tried it as well?
For SWVMS16, if you select MPEG4 as you codec, and choose HTTP protocol, it uses HTTP to negotiate the session but the real video streaming will use RTSP (554). I have seen the case where SWVMS16 will accept the setting (sees the Camera over HTTP) but not the video (due to RTSP port blocked) when I select MPEG4.
This is why I was thinking you needed to open RTSP as well.
