How to setup a DDNS service

  1. 1. Setup a DDNS service for IP Camera
  2. 2. Why do I need a DDNS service? 1. IP cameras are accessed from the Internet at an IP address e.g. http://24.5.6.7:10000 2. If you have a Dynamic IP Address from your ISP, your IP address may change frequently. Each time you would need a new address to access the camera e.g. http://24.5.6.86:10000 . And, the addresses can be random 3. A DDNS service gives a ‘name’ to your IP address e.g. http://john123.dyndns.org your router and DDNS service communicate constantly to maintain a correct mapping of your IPAddress and the ‘name’, so you can always access the camera at http://john123.dyndns.org:10000
  3. 3. When do I need a DDNS service? When you have a Dynamic-IP from your ISP. Cable, DSL, Satellite ISP’s all provide only dynamic-IP addresses • ISP’s provide a lease-time for your IP address. If your Internet has not been used for the lease-time, they will assign a new IPAddress for you Usually, Cable-Internet provides a lease-time of 1 week, DSL or Satellite Internet may have lease times of hours or minutes • DDNS service is useful for all Internet connections. However, if you have Cable Internet – you may need DDNS DSL or Satellite Internet – you definitely need DDNS Mobile Internet – DDNS does not work well DDNS service does not work well with current Mobile Internet where the IPAddresses may have lease times of seconds
  4. 4. Step 1 - setting up DDNS service at www.dyndns.org There are a number of free DDNS services. The example below is for www.dyndns.org • Access Internet from the location where you want to setup the DDNS service • Create an account at www.dyndns.org with a valid email Respond to the email received to validate your account • Login to the account, and click Account , then Add Host Services • Enter Host Name – pick a name e.g. john123 select Domain Name from drop-down e.g. dyndns.org service-type – Host with IP address IP Address – Use auto detected IP address (remember #1 above) • Add to Cart and save ( the Free option) • Your address has been setup as e.g. john123.dyndns.org
  5. 5. Step 2 - setting up the DDNS service on your Router Remember to do Step2 immediately following Step1 before your IP changes • Login to Router, click on Dynamic DNS tab • Check – Use Dynamic DNS • Enter Service Provider - eg. www.dyndns.org Host Name – e.g. john123.dyndns.org this should match the hostname at dyndns.org Username – for your dyndns.org account Password – for your dyndns.org account Apply • Now your IP Camera can be accessed at http://john123.dyndns.org
  6. 6. Things to remember Free services such as www.dyndns.org require that User periodically logs in to keep the account Active If your initial IP was not setup correctly • Find your current public IP by going to www.speakeasy.net/speedtest • Login to www.dyndns.org click Host Services select your Host enter your current IP address from #1 save
  7. 7.
