I want to stream H.264 content through a firewall.
I am using Axis M10 series cameras.
I can not manually configure the firewall. Any solution that involves
programatic configuration of the firewall is welcome. I just cant do
this manually, since our customers are not technical people and they
dont know how to setup.
I wanted to try RTP/RTSP tunneling over HTTP. But I saw in
Wowza forums that Wowza can not take RTP/RTSP over HTTP data
as input. It can stream out data through http to players but it
cant pull RTP/RTSP over HTTP data from the camera
One approach is to use UPNP. However port forwarding using
UPNP is not persistent. If the firewall looses power the port
mappings are erased. If this happens when the user is away from
home there is no way to re-esatblish connection.
Any ideas and best practices are welcome.
