Did I hear someone here say they did not need to set up port forwarding in order to view their ip cams while away from the house
You need to use an app that allows QR scanning or UID manual inputting
This will only work from a smartphone it will not work from a PC or web browser.
I tested this out on an old phone to connect to an IP camera I had setup using this method on my new phone.
I typed in the UID and Password hit connect and it connected. It did take a while for it to initially find the camera. This was also not the X10 Airsight app I tested this with.

Mr. T
I just read your this post and I know it is an old one. I just started to have this problem with my foscam IP CAMERAS due to the fact that  in my area no ISP was providing high speed internet so I had to switch to Starlink and that does not provide port forwarding.
I would really appreciate if you could please send me complete set up.
Thank you.
Wish you and every other member a happy new year. May the God bless us all with happy, healthy and enjoyable year..

Unless your cameras don't have a uid a app that uses that won't work. I don't remember where I found the uid code on the camera I used maybe under the p2p setting.
