Have you set the virtual server (or, in some cases port forwarding) up, on your router, to make your IP-cam visible from the outside? It is shown in the documentation how this is set up in general.

D-Viewcam is viewable over the internet, but there again you need to set the virtual server (port forwarding) for the specific (live viewer, remote playback) ports, and activate the network service in D-ViewCam itself, before you are able to view it...

Hi Meisam star

I guess that you are trying to use dview directly... so...
Have you set your ddns in your router?
Have you used your ddns url : port to hook up the cam in dview?

I just did this and it is working for me... what i do not know is what does the LIVE streaming option for?
im able to see the cam from the internet using the ip or the url but tryin to reach the live streaming port is not doing a thing...

Any ideas?
