Default Ip camera remote access, sometimes yes, sometimes no

Hello,
After much effort and the of this forum and others I can access my four outdoor wireless airsight cameras on my blackberry using AT&T 3G network and from a windows PC using Firefox browser. However I haven't been able to access from work using IE 9 or from a Mac using Safari.
I am using Dyndns but can access through my WAN IP and also using Airsight DNS.


I am a bit puzzled by this and wondering if anyone has any ideas.

Thanks

Since you're able to access the cams from your phone, it's most likely that you've got port forwarding set up correctly.

In this case, your workplace network may be blocking connections to the particular port to which you are trying to connect.

The next best step would be to take a laptop to an open wifi connection and attempt to connect. If your connection is successful then your workplace is blocking the port. If you still can't get in, something is amiss with your port forwarding.

Also, IE frequently uses ActiveX for streaming live video. You browser may have that disabled and/or your employer may have ActivX content blocked on their network.

I can't speak to the Safri browser. I am severely Macly challenged.

Default That helps..

Thanks guys. You may be onto something regarding active x controls since the log on screen for the cameras indicates activex required.

I appreciate the suggestions.
