  Foscam FI8910W, FI9821W - Apple Airport Extreme Setup
Posted by: Yatko - 12-12-2014, 03:36 AM - Forum: General discussion - No Replies

Foscam FI8910W, FI9821W and Apple Airport Extreme Setup and Configuration for LAN and Remote access (HTTPS Forwarding)

This is a step-by-step guide to setting up the Foscam FI8908W and Airport Extreme router. The Airport Extreme is Version 7.5.1 and the Airport Utility is Version 5.5.1. As you probably know by now, the camera manual sucks. You might want to take a look at Foscam's FI8918 manual. The software is similar to the FI8908W so it might give you some answers to your questions.


What we're going to do here is prepare the Airport Extreme to operate nicely with the FI8908W. The IP addresses we'll be dealing with are the LAN (Local Area Network) IP's assigned by the Airport. We won't need the WAN IP address of the router unless you want to access your system from the Internet. The router needs to be set up as an "Open Network", meaning it's broadcasting its SSID. Your encryption set to "WPA/WPA2 Personal". Remember the difference between the Airport Extreme's name (The name of the router) and the Network Wireless Name. (SSID) (the camera needs this name to connect to the router)

The camera needs a static IP address, not an address assigned by the router. It needs various IP addresses inputted that you'd get from the router. The port is 80. Remember when you go from Ethernet to Wireless mode to unplug the power supply cord and wait about a minute before plugging it back in. Repeat if you need to. And if you totally lock up the camera, you can do a hard reset. Push Reset button at bottom of camera for at least 20 seconds. Watch your typing and beware of typos and misspellings!! OK, lets go.

Step-By-Step Guide to Setting Up FI8908W with Airport Extreme

1) Find and download the program "IP Scanner" from Versiontracker or Cnet Downloads and install on your Mac. If you have a Windows machine, the camera comes with a program that will do the same thing.

2) Connect the camera by Ethernet cable to your Airport Extreme router and connect the cameras power supply cable and plug it in. The camera SHOULD start to move and the green light in front starts blinking.

3) Load the Airport Utility on your Mac, which is located in Applications/Utilities. Click "Manual Setup". You are in the "Summary" page. Make note of the "Wireless Network Name". Make note also of the "IP Address". This is your WAN IP address. It's the address the outside Internet world sees. You'll need this if you want to view your camera on the Internet.

4) Click "Wireless". Wireless Security should be set to "WPA/WPA2 Personal". If not, change it. Make sure you know your Wireless Network's password.

5) Click "Wireless Network Options". Make sure "Create a Closed Network" is unchecked. Click "Done". The Foscam camera can only see open networks. Meaning the SSID name of your network router is broadcast in the clear.

6) Click "Internet" at top. Click "TCP/IP". Make note of "Subnet Mask". (Example: 123.456.789.1) and DNS Server.

7) Click "DHCP". Make note of DHCP Ending Address. You're done with the router for the moment.

8) OK. Run "IP Scanner" on your Mac. (Your camera should still be connected to the router and powered on.) Don't forget to hit "Start"! Take note of the IP address of your Airport Router. This is its LAN IP address. You should see all the IP addresses of every device on your router. One is labeled "Unknown" or "Anonymous". That's your camera. Take note of that IP address. (All IP's listed are LAN IP addresses assigned by the router's DHCP Server.) If you double click on its name, a menu will pop up allowing you to make up a name for that connection. Example: Camera1.

9) Open web browser and type in that IP address. This gets you to the Log in page of the camera. Click Login for Firefox. Default User name is "admin" with no password. Click "Device Management".
10) Click "Alias Setting". Create a name you want to call your camera. (Example: Camera1, Cam1, etc.) Click "Submit". You can set your "Date and Time" and "User Settings" (user names and passwords) after you get everything else working.

11) Click "Basic Network Settings". What we're going to do is give your camera a Static IP Address. Uncheck box that reads "Obtain IP from DHCP Server" and fill in the blanks with the following:

12) IP Address: Remember when you made a note of the DCHP ending address in the Airport Extreme router? (Step 7) Chose an IP address PAST the end of the DCHP ending address range. (Example: if the ending address is 123.456.789.200, chose 123.456.789.201 and on up.) This IP address you chose will be your cameras Static IP Address.

13) Next, type in the "Subnet Mask" IP you noted in "TCP/IP and DNS Server IP". (Step 6)

14) OK. Very important. Under "Gateway" type in the Airport Extreme's LAN IP address you noted on the "IP Scanner" software. (Step 8)

15) Finally, the HTTP Port is 80. Click "Submit" and the camera should reboot. Wait until the camera goes through its reboot process of moving up and down and sideways.

16) Back to your browser. Type in the camera's NEW Static IP Address and you should be back to the Log in page of your camera. Log back in. Congrats!

17) Next, we'll set up your camera for wireless operation. You'll need to know your Airport Extreme router's network password. Once you're logged into your camera, click on "Wireless LAN Settings".

18) Click "Scan". If nothing shows up, wait a minute and click "Scan" again. Your Airport router's Network Wireless Name (SSID) should show up. This is assuming you have set up your wireless network correctly in Step 4. Your routers Network Wireless Name (SSID) along with any other wireless system in your area should be listed. It's IMPORTANT that it shows up. If its not there, make sure the Airport is set to open network in Step 5. Still not there, pull power from camera and reboot and go through Step 17 again. Watch for TYPO'S and misspellings. Click on your routers Network Wireless Name and the SSID Box should automatically fill in with your routers name and the Encryption Box should automatically have all your security information filled in. If you picked "WPA/WPA2 Personal" in your Airport, the camera encryption should be listed as "WPA Personal (TKIP). Under "Share Key", type in Airport's network password. Click "Submit" and camera reboots.

19) After the camera reboots, log in again with your browser. (You should be getting used to this step by now!) If everything is fine, its time to go wireless!

20) Pull the power plug from your camera and disconnect the Ethernet cable. Wait a minute then plug the power back into your camera. Camera goes through its boot up process.

21) Back to your browser. Type in your camera's static IP address. You SHOULD get back to your camera's log in page. You should be good to go! (If not, repeat Step 20. Still have problems? Reconnect Ethernet cable, log in again to camera, THEN repeat Step 20.)

22) If you've got this far, feel free to go back to "User Settings" and "Date and Time" and set those up at your leisure. Remember to make note of any passwords you create!

23) Finally, if you want to access your camera on the Internet, first you'll need to set up a web address at Dyndns.com. You'll create a web address that will connect to your router and through that, your camera. You'll just type in a URL and there is your camera. All the documentation you need is on that website. Note: You'll need your Airport's WAN IP Address. Another way of finding that out is to go to "whatismyip.com".

24) Open up your Airport Utility again. We're going to set up Port Mapping. From your Main Screen, Click "Advanced". Click "Port Mapping". Click "+". Under "Choose a Service" pick "Personal Web Sharing". The Public and Private TCP ports should be 80.

25) Under "Private IP Address" fill in with your cameras Static IP Address you gave it. Click "Continue". Under "Description" enter a name for this. Example: "Camera1 Wireless". Click "Done". Click "Update". Airport Extreme reboots. You're done!

26) Go to your browser and type in your dyndns.com's web address. There's your camera. Enjoy!

Today I found out, that my SVC runs on remote, instead of local!

Everything works fine so far, but "remote" is unacceptable, because I have a closed community.

(tried this also with domain.com instead of localhost.)

everything should be fine

  Help with Making SVC working similar to ChatRoulette.com
Posted by: getin2china - 03-19-2013, 09:07 PM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (1)

Hello Everyone,

I'm looking for an option to make a website similar to Chatroulette.com
As I understand right the best way is to use SVC-SR with a little modifications such as:

User registration, to be able to see how many people are on-line, targeting search option, PayPal payment etc.

Now the questions is, do you offer such a customisation service? Who can help with adjustment/adding new features? Is it possible at all???

  About Chatroulette Clone and Paid Face to Face Video Chat
Posted by: postman - 02-10-2013, 11:36 AM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (4)

Hello forum,

I want to run a Chatroulette clone on my Wordpress website so that only the members of my website can enter it, is it possible with RVCS? I read the explanations of the applications on videosoftware pro's website and I think RVCS is the right one for my site, am I correct?

Also I want to run another website that will contain a face-to-face video chatroom program in which the user pays to the owner of the room that he/she entered in. It should also only be available for my Wordpress website, I wonder if this is also possible/not possible. I have no idea about which application should I have for this site.

If someone can explain me how to setup these two sites properly, which applications should I download/buy and give some links about the installation steps, I will really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

Question Choosing the right architecture for face to face video chat
Posted by: bobounboboun - 02-05-2013, 08:55 PM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (2)

Hi guys,

I am French entrepreneur building a website which aims at helping people find teachers for private live face to face guitar lessons via webcam (ONE teacher and ONE student). Lessons would be 100% in browser (I don't want the users to download a software or install any plugin).
During the lessons themsleves, teachers should be able to display chords, tabs etc. to the user, next to the video and also be able to text chat.
I would like the quality to be at least 720p with a minimum of 25fps.
I think I won't have more than 20 simultaneous lessons.
Ideally, the stream would be P2P (From my understanding, if it's not P2P I am going to have a bad time paying for the bandwidth of the servers).
I am assuming the teacher and the student have optical-fiber connection with 100 Mbits/s bandwitdth downstream and 10 Mbits/s upstream.

I am looking for the right technology/architecture and that's why I am posting here.
At first sight, WebRTC sounded like a good option. So, I contacted http://www.tokbox.com/ which offer a WebRTC based solution. Their support team told the best I could get whith such a solution would be 640*480 with fps in the neighborhood of 10 - 15 fps.
So this definitly not a good option for me.
I also looked at Red5 and Flash Media Server but I am not a technical guy and I have no idea what quality I can expect here.

What technology / architecture do you think I sould use ?
Let me know If you need me to provide you with more details.

Thanks for your help

  How to start Bonjour on Mac
Posted by: Govido - 11-28-2012, 10:37 AM - Forum: General discussion - No Replies

Wondering how to start the Bonjour service on your mac's Safari in order to connect an AirPlay device? Some forums say it is there, in the bookmarks menu. But it can be hard to find it.

Google "how to start bonjour on mac" and check the first result from Apple, Apple - Support - Bonjour

They talk about the technology, wake on demand, file sharing and all kinds of developer stuff, no sign of "how to use it from Safari", don't give up, check the Bonjour FAQ.... Simplify Networking with Bonjour, Bonjour Network Discovery and Connectivity ... no sign of how to start it. Thanks for the iSheep videos, now let's get back to Google and find the answer.

And the answer: Bonjour is there in the bookmarks, you just have to include it yourself. Preferences > Bookmarks and select "Include Bonjour" under Collections.

  Fix Joomla 3.0 directory permissions
Posted by: Govido - 11-23-2012, 10:47 AM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (3)

NOTE: this post is for Joomla 3.0, for 2.5 and prior versions, jump to Setting Joomla Directory Permissions for Joomla 2.5

After a fresh Joomla! 3.0.x or RocketLauncher J30 installation you may face the situation where you cannot install any new extension (component, module or plugin). In case of RocketLauncher (at this time only Metropolis RocketLauncher J30 is available), the fresh installation will cause this issue on most cPanel/WHM servers.

The symptom:

Warning: Failed to move file!

JFolder: :files: Path is not a folder. Path: /home/ ... /public_html/tmp/install_50aec7556dcbf
JFolder: :folder: Path is not a folder. Path: /home/ ... /public_html/tmp/install_50aec7556dcbf
JFolder: :files: Path is not a folder. Path: /home/ ... /public_html/tmp/install_50aec7556dcbf
JInstaller: :Install: Cannot find Joomla XML setup file

Archive does not exist

There could be several reasons for such messages but in case of a new Joomla 3.0 installation or Metropolis RocketLauncher J30 the problem is the Joomla 3.0 directory permissions.

The solution:
Setting Joomla Directory Permissions - updated 11/22/2012 for Joomla 3.0
After installing Joomla! 3.0.x you may need to fix the directory permissions in order to have Joomla! working without "Permission denied" errors and/or "Failed to move file!" warnings. I couldn't find a simple way to view the list of folders that need RW (read, write) rights. In previous Joomla versions used to be "Site" >> "System Information" and the "Directory Permissions" tab, where you could see the full list of directories with the "Writable" or "Unwritable" status. Not there any more but you may still need to change the file permissions for these directories.

You can achieve this one-by-one via the cPanel File Manager or via FTP, refer to the list of directories at the end of this post, change them all to 0777 rw (read-write).

If you have SSH acces, it is easier and by running the following bash script, where you need to change the "username" for SERVERUSER and optionally add the INSTALLDIR, it is just a minute:
*the username is same as your cPanel username, if you are on SSH /home/[username]/public_html/...
*the INSTALLDIR is used in case you installed Joomla under a folder or subdomain, ex. /home/[username]/public_html/[mypage] for mypage.mydomain.com or mydomain.com/mypage


SERVERUSER="username"     #username on your server (same as login name for cPanel) /home/SERVERUSER
INSTALLDIR=""            #optional, always start with "/" example: /myjoomla will point to www.your-domain.com/myjoomla directory

#change JOOMLAPATH to point to your Joomla! installation directory, the setting below works on default cPanel servers
#if SERVERUSER and INSTALLDIR is correctly set

echo "Home Directory: /home/"$SERVERUSER
echo "Joomla Install:" $JOOMLAPATH

#verify and accept before running chmod on Joomla! directories
read -p "Continue with chmod (y/n)?"
    if [ $REPLY != "y" ]; then
    echo "Exiting..."
    exit 1

chmod -v 0777 $JOOMLAPATH/administrator/components
chmod -v 0777 $JOOMLAPATH/administrator/language
