Is gipcam.com down??
« on: December 24, 2012, 01:10:10 PM »

Hi,
I cant seem to access my cameras thru gipcam.com anymore. No problems previously. I've done a factory reset and set them up from scratch to see if that works. No joy.
I can access them within my wifi but not from outside. Any new problems with gipcam.com?
Thanks.

Look into blueiris.  It has a free trial period adn offers a awesome web server interface.

After some research with our IT department we found that there are some fleeting moments where the gipcam service may have went down for short periods of time and it would affect some users, but not all users. We have other solutions to move you over to another DDNS if you would like please contact us at 1-800-675-3044 or email support@x10.com and we can can gather the information needed to change the DDNS within the camera to another DDNS address. Because we have to assign each one to each camera we do not have an automated process for this, but if you can contact us we would just need some basic information and we could switch over the DDNS.

Thanks for the help - got hold of X10 support to see about the DDNS changeover but in the meantime I'm able to use my external IPs to see the camera. Its dynamic so that isnt a solution.
