UPNP Questions!!!
« on: April 19, 2017, 11:48:14 PM »

Background: I have a number of DLINK cams. ALL cams have the latest firmware.  Due to a bad modem, had to swap it out for a new one. Modem and router are working fine following the change.
I had UPNP disabled on router and could access the cams remotely via the mydlink app prior to the modem swap. However, post modem swap, I cannot access the cams remotely but they work locally fine.
I believe the issue is due to UPNP being off.  My question is what are the desired settings for UPNP in order for the cams to work remotely? I think the answer is:
1)   Enable UPNP in router
2)   Enable UPNP for each cam by logging into its settings
Anything else? http://support.dlink.com/emulators/dcs930l/100/helpadva.htm What about UPNP port fowarding setting on the cam???
I read something about multicasting? Is that relevant? Can you explain it?

uPnP should be enabled on the main host router and on cameras. uPnP Port Forwarding should be enabled as well if you have more than one camera I was told by D-Link:
Test cameras with uPnP and uPnP Port Forwarding both enabled on ALL cameras: DCS Cloud (L) Series Camera Configuration and Mydlink.com
