Home Cameras with CGN (Carrier Grade NAT)


Vadito

Recommended Posts

For years I have been able to remotely view and connect cameras at my elderly parent’s home.  I used the dyndns.org service and various ports to be able to view cameras around the home.  But recently their ISP “upgraded” to CGN, Carrier Grade NAT and dual stack.  From that moment, the dyndns service has not been working.  I loaded the dyndns client program on a computer at their home, and even with it running, the result is the same, no connection any camera.   I under the concept of the large private network the provider is using and that the cameras have to go through it.  I guess my question is how to I get there?  Is there a service that is designed to forward through a CGN?   Thanks for any help or advice.

Welcome to the forums!

 

1) Are you absolutely sure your now behind CGN?

2)  Open a web browser go to whatismyip are you in any of the ranges below?

 

CGN 100.64.x.x

192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255

172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255

10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255

 

I included all the none routable ranges above because I have see carriers use the 10.x.x.x range as well.

 

Providing you fall into any of the ranges above your basically SOL, Have a look at this Wiki and scroll down to the disadvantages and look at bullet point 4.

 

OK so what are your options?

 

1) call the ISP and tell them that there CGN has broke your gaming console and could you opt-out of CGN and get your public IP back for free.

2) Ask the ISP if they have a static IP plan that you could pay for.

3) Look into a VPN service that you maybe able to connect outbound to the service, then connect remotely to the VPN. I don't even know if this would work but maybe worth a try. Either way option 2 & 3 will cost you extra money every month

4) Look for a new ISP.

 

What is the name of the ISP your using?

 

Hope this helps...

      Today, Netgear announced HomeKit functionality in Arlo Baby Smart HD Monitoring Camera.  Parents with this camera can now easily pair it to HomeKit and ask Siri to show the baby camera.  Just as fun, you can listen in on baby's room as well as view from remote.
       

       
      “HEY SIRI, SHOW ME THE NURSERY”
       
      Netgear is the first smart baby camera to integrate with HomeKit.  You can easily watch and listen to live video stream with 2 way audio from Arlo Baby camera through your iOS  Home app.  Netgear won an innovation award with Arlo Baby Smart HD camera at CES 2017.  It can be found at most big box stores and on Amazon for $231.99. http://amzn.to/2D2fm0b
       
      You will immediately recognize the Baby Smart Cameras as it can be dressed up to look more appealing in a child's room instead of the look of an intruding security camera.  It also has temperature and air quality sensors to give you more insight into your baby's room as well as peace of mine.  You can use motion alerts to stay let you know when baby's nap is over or you can use an audio alert to let you know as well.  It will also send air quality notifications.
      One feature I think differentiates this camera from the others is the "near-invisible" infrared in order to get night vision.  It also has a rechargeable battery so you can move the camera to wherever baby is.

      Hallo!
      I am new here. I am a little desperate because despite the fact my job is IT I don't get it to work. My homeserver is running Server 2012 R2 Essentials and because somehow the AD and file shares did not work properly anymore I decided to reinstall the OS from scratch. After reinstallation I reconfigured anywhere access and reobtained my remotewebaccess.com-subdomain which worked fine except for the the remotedesktopgateway did not get the certificate properly which I fixed with this guide here. This step was not necessary when I installed the OS some years ago for the first time.
       
      Up until the first forced reconnect from my ISP the IP-adress of my router matched with the one in the DNS-record. But after that it did not refresh anymore. The error message in the Dashboard says (I hope this matches the english version of the message): The dynamic DNS information cannot be updated. Details to this message says furthermore: The DNS-information cannot be updated because no connection to the domain name provider can not be established. Contact your domain name provider. And after the lifespan of the DNS-record expires additionally the error message appears that the domain name can not be resolved...Unsurprisingly.
       
      The weird thing is that DynDNS for AnywhereAccess/RemoteWebAccess has never been an issue with the old and now overwritten OS installation. In desparation I made a bare metal recovery from the old OS installation to check the behaviour of DynDNS which worked still just fine. A second WS2012R2E-installation inside a VM was a bit contradictory. The original remotewebaccess.com-domain could not be reinstated but a new one registered. Though I haven't checked if the new domain can update the DNS-record.
       
      Now with the once again reinstalled OS DynDNS acts as described above. Port forwarding (Port 443) on my router has been set up for testing purposes both via UPnP and after that manually. Didn't matter before reinstallation because it worked both ways. I deliberately left out Port 80 for security reasons.
       
      I have searched through the eventlog and the Internet, to no avail. The only remotely useful hint was to change the Windows Live-password had no effect. And the Eventlog is so overwhelmingly packed with events of any kind I also ran several times the repair wizard from the Dashboard with always the same error. I even was unable to release my subdomain through the configuration wizard.
       
      I can imagine that the public certificate from GoDaddy needs to be imported somewhere for authentication to make DNS-record updates possible. But that would make the Windows Live-login obsolete.
       
      Has someone any advice how I can get the DynDNS-service back up running? Or where I have to search for more detailed hints for the cause? I have already considered that it is not a "broken service" of the OS but rather an external issue beyond my control (which suggests the error message). But that contradicts the fact that the recovered installation was able to update the external DNS-record. If the cause is really external who is the correct contact? GoDaddy or Microsoft?
       
      Edit: Maybe do I miss some windows updates or update rollups that do not come through Windows Update? I have updated the OS only via the OS-internal Windows Update function and right after installation some with wsusoffline.

      This probably deserves it's own thread but I'm not sure where it should go...
       
      Just visited CEDIA 2017 in San Diego and one of the HOTTEST products just announced (and that I hadn't heard about before the show) is the new Netgear wireless IP Camera.
       
      The folks that do the popular ARLO camera have a new line called FlexPower that uses the same physical packaging but is a completely separate system.
       
      The FlexPower is a battery operated (rechargeable) wireless IP Camera that is fully ONVIF compatible.
       
      It is a very clever system where a "base station" provides the ONVIF interface and controls multiple wireless cameras.  The cameras themselves are motion-activated, but the base station makes it all transparent to standard ONVIF systems.
       
      Looking forward to seeing these when they ship at the end of October.
       
      If it works smoothly with 3rd party NVR systems (like Blue Iris and SecuritySpy, etc.) this could be a real game changer - the benefits of a wireless/battery-powered camera connected to a standard back-end NVR.

      Silly name?  Ya. I bought an action cam that is practically the same. Built on same body, lens, etc.  I paid way more than this and love it.  It's really nice having this extra camera around.  I also picked up a kit that has tons of mounts and stuff.  This one has a waterproof case too. Nice to have!  This price is practically risk free and I have had good luck so far with GearBest.
