Title: Login from IP based in Russia?
Post by: Natey2 on December 10, 2015, 08:36:49 AM
My camera logs indicate:
2015-12-08 22:00:32 User from 77.40.115.187 login failed & lock web service

Is someone from Russia trying to login to my camera or my dlink account?

How are you determining the location? Domain Tools?

You might want to filter out 77.* incoming web traffic in your router.

Is your camera on port 80 and publicly accessible through your router?

Port 80 is visible to the public :(
I wonder how that happened during this installation process.
I'm usually quite good about keeping common ports closed to the public.

All NetTools, SmartWhois.
There are other services out there that will geo-map an IP address to a geographical location.

And what is your geographical location?

It would be funny if he/she is in Russia.   ;)

Southern California.
If I block Port 80, will mydlink.com still be able to access my camera for me to view online?

Maybe the guy in Russia who's accessing (trying to, at least) my camera will alert me via e-mail if he sees any unusual activity.

I wonder if you get a new ISP IP address on the WAN side of the router, if the IP address report will stop?

Any IP I can get will be within my ISP's range of IPs, and I suspect people are just scanning common ports over IP ranges.
Now, I have someone from France and someone from New York trying to access my camera:

2015-12-23 17:24:11 User from 85.25.43.227 login failed & lock web service
2015-12-27 01:56:29 User from 104.238.135.26 login failed & lock web service

Do you guys run your cameras on port 80 as well?

What is the Mfr and model of the main host router and ISP modem?

Title: Re: Login from IP based in Russia?
Post by: Natey2 on January 01, 2016, 07:34:04 PM
Linksys N900
Motorola SB6141 (mine, not ISP-provided)

Could be that the camera is picking up traffic and attempted log in and just reporting it.

Might have the ISP give you a new IP address on the modem and see what happens.

NO.  How could I with multiple dlink cams?

Most cable internet providers use DHCP to give out IPs. The IPs aren't assigned, so they can't give "new" ones out. The usual procedure is to change the WAN MAC address of the router and reboot the modem. This will cause the modem to think it is a new device and will be forced to assign a new IP.

To change the MAC of the router (assuming you have a EA4500) is Connectivity > Internet Settings > MAC address clone as seen in this emulator.  (http://ui.linksys.com/EA4500/3.1.6.166173/)

I assumed as much however the ISP could help him get a new one or maybe a static IP too.  ;)

Static IPs are usually only going to be for Business customers and/or cost money. All they have to do is change their WAN MAC address. As long as they are using DHCP and reboot the modem, the router will get a new IP. I just know what it is like to both call a ISP support and work in a ISP support; both suck.  ;D

Understand. I presume that the ISP can help get the WAN IP addressed changed though. We hope something can be done.  ;)

I would bet they will send OP right back to Dlink support. Can't hurt to try though. Care to wager 10 geek points?  ;D
