In this tutorial, we will discuss how you can access your IP camera using the Port forwarding method. But let’s first discuss the requirement

Things to Consider:

  1. PureVPN account with Port forwarding and static IP add-on. (If you haven’t bought yet click 👉 here to buy)
  2. IP camera
  3. PureVPN Supported Router. Click 👉 here to find the PureVPN supported router list.
  • First of all, you need to log in to your camera admin interface, once you have logged in to your IP camera admin panel go to the network settings. And check the port which has been assigned to your IP camera. It might be port 554, 80, or 88 but we recommend you to check the assigned port as it could be anything.
  • After noting down the port that has been assigned to your IP camera, the next thing you need to do is to configure VPN Static IP onto the VPN supported router or any device on which you need to forward the IP camera assigned port. If you haven’t purchased Port forwarding and Static IP VPN addons then you can click on this 👉 link to purchase.
  • Once you have configured the PureVPN static IP onto your device then the next step is to allow the port from your PureVPN member area account. Follow this 👉 link to allow port from member area.
  • After allowing the port from the member area you need to forward the same port from your router. You will need to create a Port Forwarding rule in order to forward the port. Be sure to assign the port number to both the internal and external ports. If there is a protocol option, choose TCP or BOTH. Click 👉 here to find out how to set up Port forwarding on the router. In this link, there are several routers available you may find your router in the list and follow the instructions.
Please make sure to type the PureVPN static IP address in the local IP section in the Port Forwarding section of the router.
  • Once done you can simply enable the rule and access your IP camera using the allowed port. But if you have more than one camera you can’t use the same port. You will need to increment accordingly. For example, if you have one camera setup on port 8080, change the next one to 8081, and so on. The port number may vary to the network you’re trying to configure your IP camera on.
