OS X remote connection to AirSight
« on: January 13, 2013, 02:39:27 PM »

This is how I got my cameras to work. OS X 10.8, Safari, Linksys WRT110 router
I am assuming you already have connected to, and configured the camera; and have something like DYNDNS set up so you can always get a URL to resolve to your domain (some ISP's block this Comcast, etc). This will all work best if you have a wired connection.

AirSight>Network:
set the web port sequentially for each camera. ie: 8001, 8002, 8003, etc.
Also set their IPs sequentially (helps to do this in the same order). ie: 192.168.1.155, 192.168.1.156, etc.
example:


Router>PortForwarding:
now you need to tell your router where the cameras are and how to route the traffic.
You ned to route the port request, to the right IP. ie:
Code: [Select]
http://foo.com:8001 routes to 192.168.1.155, etc.
example:


Now you can get to your AirSight remotely via
Code: [Select]
http://{YOURSITE}.com:{PORT} ie:
Code: [Select]
http://foo.com:8001
IMPORTANT!
Set the admin password to a 64 character random string https://www.grc.com/passwords.htm Create a new superuser with a unique name and password, and make them strong!! If you cant handle a complicated password 64 characters long, do the  next best thing, use a haystack! https://www.grc.com/haystack.htm

IMPORTANT
Unless you have an SSL cert on your site, NEVER connect to your cameras from a public hot spot. This mean coffee shops, airports, anywhere that is open. If your site isnt SSL, dont risk it! Over your iPhone etc it is ok because the likelihood of someone being on your connection illegally is astronomical.

Hope this helps my fellow Apple users!
