    I have a surveilance software on my Lan with port no 8080, but I am unable to view it over the internet when i type http: // my ipadd/8080.
    How do I make my private IP address to be seen on the public internet?

    Hi,

    Try http:// myipadd : 8080

    First of all, if u have a private ipaddress and u want to see that on the public internet, then, ur gateway must be a public ipaddress and ip forwarding should come into pciture.
    That is, say ur private ip: 192.168.1.10 and ur gateway: 44.122.1.6 which is a public ipaddress. And, the firewall rule: "Allow from internet - the 8080 traffic should be forwarded or redirected to ur lan ip(192.168.1.10)" should be added.

    Type from the internet as: http:44.122.1.6:8080
    The traffic from wan to lan will be redirected to ur private ip: 192.168.1.10 on port 8080 to access ur software.

    May answer ur question.

    Hi,
    If you have static public IP from ISP and u install that software on that gateway system, u can use http:// YourPublicIP : 8080 to access it from internet. If you install it on a system with private IP, u need to configure IP forwarding/ mapping in Proxy or NAT. If you have dynamic IP from ISP ie. dialup, cable etc., it would be difficult as the the public IP changes frequently so that u have to check the IP each time u want to connect.

    Re: How to make my private IP address viewable on the Public Internet

    Hi,

    I'm having the same problem but I need to connect to my touch screen via internet. My touch screen is wired to my wireless router, if my routers IP Address is for example(192.168.1.1) and my Gateway Address is (99.99.99.9)and my touch screen is (192.168.1.2) How can I access my touch screen private ip address?

    you need to know the port you want to communicate and configure that in your router , then do the port forwarding to the 192.168.1.2 or you can add rule like range of ports for incoming or outgoing

    than from outside , you can just use your external ip address to access your home pc

    hope this helps

    hi, suji

    Thanks for the input, so then what would my external ip address be, based off the examples given? would I then type in the address bar via internet, my gateway ip address followed by ort number for the touch screen?
    99.99.99.9:8080 will bring me to my router remotely via internet, so 99.99.99.9:1020 would bring me to my touch screen if I used 1020 as a port number for touch screen?

    yes.. just go to google and search What is my IP , use that IP address and the port needed in the same way you would access within the network , port can communicate, now you need to configure your app in ipad with same port

    Re: How to make my private IP address viewable on the Public Internet

    Internal: 192.168.1.2-port - you don't need to change router setting to allow the port
    External : 99.99.99.99-port - you need to add the port in router settings

    it depends on your app what url to use , it may or may not include the port number

    hope this helps

    Re: How to make my private IP address viewable on the Public Internet

    99.99.99.99-8080 this is an example of what I typed into the address bar via internet but no connection. when it ask me for a port on my touch screen I put 53 is this correct the way that I typed it into the address bar? I can connect to my routers setting through 99.99.99.99:7980 and it works, why is that?

    port numbers will be all the time with column : only .. give the url format that works internally. if it works 99.99.99.99:7980, then all you need to do is change the IP address to public ip after opening the port
