For the IP cameras themselves, I’ve included our documentation below. When setting up the URL, you’ll need to consult the camera’s guide or with their manufacturer for details on how to retrieve the streaming address. You’ll also need to make sure the port for the IP camera is forwarded in order to connect to the Cloud itself.
To access your IP Camera from the Internet, you will need to identify your public IP address and configure your router/firewall to send requests on the applicable ports to your IP Camera.
You (or a network administrator) must access your network firewall to open and forward these ports to your IP Camera. This is not a process I am able to support, however, this website, www.portforward.com, provides all sorts of instructions for various routers.
Once your port configuration is completed, from a computer on the same network as your IP Camera, you can visit http://www.whatismyipaddress.com where your public IP will be displayed. In most situations, using your IP will direct you to your server, again, as long as the ports are open and forwarded correctly.
Once you’ve made these changes, you can test if the IP Camera is accessible from the Internet. Using a computer or mobile device that is outside your firewall, try connecting to the IP Camera. Doing this will help determine if Wowza Cloud will be able to connect to you IP Camera.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions regarding accessing Wowza using a public IP.
