I just got a Networked IP camera and unfortunately, it shows a couple of examples of Port Forwarding for D-Link, Belkin routers. How should I setup Port Forwarding for the DD-wrt to access the camera from the Internet?

The poorly written manual mentions also a "virtual server" option which I couldn't find in DD-WRT. TIA.

What have you tried? Could you provide more information about your setup/equipment?

if you need help, you need to let us know what router you have and what build number you are running.

in order to set up effectively, you need to setup the DDNS service so you can find your router on the internet easily. after that, just port forward the port you want to use to the devices port used for viewing it's webpage. i believe it;s under the NAT tab.

These are the pages in the IP camera manual for port forwarding. I am using a Netgear R4500 with R24461.

you can try following this example. in this case, the default port on the webcams were changed from 80 to something else so there would be no conflict.

I also have a DDNS service configured so I can access the cameras individually using the url address of http://mydomainname:port number from inside and outside my network.

I put 0.0.0.0/0 in for the source net. I don't think my ports were working until I did so on my R7000. Maybe it is a newer build requirement.
