Firewall entries
« on: December 02, 2017, 10:38:52 AM »

I have some dcs-936l cams and am trying to whitelist my firewall as much as possible. I know the ports, but where does my cameras need to connect to so I can access then via mydlink Lite (either URL or IPs)?

Thanks

I would use the IP address of the camera.

Might look at your routers uPnP or route table to see if the camera ports or IP addresses appear there...

Usually firewall entries are not needed unless your using a specific Firewall appliance device.

A firewall entry is needed because I have blocked everything internal going out unless I specifically give it access (white list). I need to know what the dcs-936l's are trying to connect to when I access them in mydlink lite. I see there is a mydlinklite.com. Is that where my cameras connect to so I can view them with the mydlink lite app?

Yes,that app and service should not be blocked.

That's why I am trying to find out what the cameras connect to so I can open the firewall to the correct destination and ports.

That wasn't it, but I was able to go through logs and resolve what I need.
