Hello D-Link Community

I'm trying to embed the live feed of a pair of DCS-932L cameras to a separate web page so that others can view the live stream without having to log into anything.  I was tasked to do this by a friend of mine who already has his cameras set up.  The live streams are working properly on myDlink and all that good stuff, but no matter what HTML codes I find on this forum, nothing has given me any results after I enter in the camera's IP address.  However, I noticed that most of, if not, all the codes mention "port forwarding".

Based on what I've looked up about port forwarding so far, I think my inherent problem is that I may be skipping to step five rather than starting on step one.  Here is my situation and questions so far:

-The firmware is version 1.12 and I have the latest version of Java installed on my computer
-Both the streams work on the myDlink account
-However, the ActiveX and Java streams on the page of the camera's IP doesn't show.  ActiveX displays nothing at all, and Java displays a message "ClassNotFoundException aplug.class".  I have a feeling it may have to do with port forwarding because I'm trying to view it on a computer that's about 15 miles away from the cameras that I'm trying to view.  Can someone confirm or refute this?

-This was the code I was trying to use at first (http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=52483.0)
-Out of curiosity, would it be better to use this method instead?  (http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=47668.0)  If so, can it be done WITHOUT port forwarding or anything?
-When I'm viewing my camera's IP address page, it changes slightly every now and again.  For instance, it was once XXX.X.X.X:52500.  Now, it's XXX.X.X.X:49758, and I can't access that page from the older version.  Why does this happen, and does this have to do with "Static IP addresses"?
-On the Network Setup Page, the LAN Settings have "DHCP Connection" checked off.  The "HTTP Port" is set to 80, the UPnP (which I know stands for Universal Plug and Play) Settings are set so that UPnP is enabled, but UPnP Port Forwarding is Disabled.

Any help/answers will be greatly appreciated.  Working with IP Cameras like these is a new experience for me, so I need as much information as possible before pulling the trigger.  I would be doing some experimenting myself, but I really want advice from experienced people before trying anything because I'm terrified that I might ruin something.

Thank you all very much for your time.

I'd find new friends  :o

I googled it and came across this.

You might find more information in the forums.


" For instance, it was once XXX.X.X.X:52500.  Now, it's XXX.X.X.X:49758, and I can't access that page from the older version.  Why does this happen, and does this have to do with "Static IP addresses"? "

After the colon is the port #... That's were port forwarding comes in.  Assign an outside port to port 80 on the camera (unless you change the cameras port).
This is because you can't have 3 cameras also using the outside port 80 - it can only go to 1 camera.

Yes, you definitely need to set up port forwarding.
Here are some useful resources -

http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/
http://www.wikihow.com/Set-Up-Port-Forwarding-on-a-Router
http://whatismyipaddress.com/port-forwarding
In my experience (Mac OSX) UPnP should be OFF both in router and on camera.
