4.Setting up DDNS Service

Dynamic Domain Name Service (DDNS) provides the capability for a networked device using the Internet Protocol Suite to notify a DDNS host to change the active DNS configuration of its hostnames or addresses. This is a useful feature that your Q-SeeIP Camera is equipped with and can be helpful in avoiding any issues that might occur due to frequent or unplanned changes to your Public/WAN IP address. Enabling DDNS on yourQ-SeeIP camera will allow you to connect to your device through a DDNS host such asmyq-see.com. In order to facilitate this ability on yourQ-SeeIP Camera, you must first set up Port Forwarding as directed in the User Manual for this device. Once you have enabled Port Forwarding, you can configure your DDNS information by following these steps:

a.Using a computer that is connected to the same network as your Q-SeeIP Camera, use your IE Browser to go tomyq-see.com.

b.Click on the New User? Link at the bottom of your page (http://myq-see.com/reg.asp).

c.Complete the registration process by following the on-screendirections and click the [Submit] button at the bottom of your screen (Figure 14).

(Figure 14)

(Figure 15)

d.The next screen will ask you to create a domain name. Domain names must start with an (a-z)or(0-9)and cannot contain a hyphen. Once you choose your domain name, click on the [Request Domain] button. This will generate a confirmation screen which tells you if your Domain name is available and list an IP address (Figure 15). Verify that this is your current IP Address by going towww.myipaddress.com and checking that it is the same address listed in your confirmation screen (Figure 15).

e.Once you have completed steps a-d,log on to yourQ-SeeIP Camera by going to [START→ALL PROGRAMS→CONTROL CENTER→IPTOOL] on your Windows Start Bar and following the directions illustrated in Figures 5 and 6.
