Have a look at the bottom right hand corner of your last post.

Or am I missing something?

Kind of, the video server is what I need the external IP of, not my actual sever, however since it's just a box that hosts a web page, I can't browse the web through it and so I can't easily find it's external IP. I have it's IP and port forwarded in the router, I just don't know what the external IP address will be specifically :/

The same as the external IP for any other device behind that (NAT) router.

Hmm, I'll give it a try with that then, I thought I had but I made have mistyped the port or something.

The fundamental point when you are connected to the internet is to sit behind a separate firewall.

The ONLY exception is roaming with your laptop when conditions are slightly different.

You should never ever use your data server as your primary firewall.

Those functions that you wish to be accessible from the outside need to be in a DMZ, i.e. a separate network segment with severely restricted access via a primary firewall, or via specific unit designed for secure access. Furthermore the machines in the DMZ should not be able to initiate a connection to the internal network.

In order to achieve securely this you must have a range of static IP addresses.

I'm not hosting any data on it, just a Dayz server to mess around with (since you can do some interesting stuff compared to single player) or a minecraft server if I get back into that. I do have this server and the axis box set as static IP's right now. packing for the move is getting escalated so I doubt I will be able to try anything out for a while.

Hey all, needing to use this as a security cam for real now, someone has been dumping trash on our property in the back alley.

I have a filezilla server set up, and can connect with the client however I am working on setting it up on the axis box, I am just doing it locally, so 127.0.0.1 is the main address, and through the router it will need to be 192.168.0.100, however I am wondering what the actual upload path needs to be. The default is the ip followed by /ftp/upload, is that correct? It does not seem to be working, since the video server is not connecting to the filezilla server, I'm not even seeing an attempted connection though the video server's network connection and the router's network lights are going crazy (which is a good sign so far lol)

oooh! oooh! oooh!

I poked around in the HTML, and found the direct link for the video feed, and with that, yawcam software sees it as an IP camera! And that software has motion detection! WHOOOOOOOOO!!!

I bet it's FTP will be usable, or maybe it even has direct saving. I'm going to drive on back and play with this some more instead of over teamviewer (since I can't turn the lights on from here)

*happy dance*

Perfect! the motion detection works great, I bumped the video resolution up (an amazing 704 x 480!) and took off encoding, it's a little slow, but it should be more than good enough to read plates from the back alley, plus yawcam does just have the option to save an image (500ms seems to be the best workable option, maybe with a USB webcam it would work faster, but this is alright), and email notification with the images as well, so within around two minutes, usually closer to one, I get an email a load of images, seems to be set to around 30 right now. Sure it's no live feed, but this is one step better.
