How To Set Up A WebcamXP Server For Remote Viewing

How to Set Up a WebcamXP Server for Remote Viewing

WebcamXP is a popular software that allows you to turn your computer into a video surveillance system. You can use it to monitor your home, business, or any other location with access to the Internet. You can also stream live video to your website or view it from your smartphone or other devices.

How to Set Up a WebcamXP Server for Remote Viewing


One of the features of webcamXP is that you can set up a server that allows you to access your webcam remotely. This can be useful if you want to check on your property while you are away, or share your webcam with others. However, setting up a webcamXP server requires some configuration and security measures. In this article, we will show you how to set up a webcamXP server for remote viewing using port 8080 and a secret password.

Step 1: Install webcamXP on your computer

The first step is to download and install webcamXP on your computer. You can get the latest version from the official website. There are different editions of webcamXP available, depending on your needs and budget. For this tutorial, we will use the free edition, which supports one webcam and one network camera.

After downloading the setup file, run it and follow the instructions to install webcamXP on your computer. You may need to restart your computer after the installation is complete.

Step 2: Configure your webcam and network settings

The next step is to configure your webcam and network settings in webcamXP. To do this, launch webcamXP and click on the "Settings" button at the top right corner of the main window. This will open a new window with several tabs.

On the "Sources" tab, you can select your webcam or network camera from the drop-down menu. You can also adjust the resolution, frame rate, brightness, contrast, and other settings for your camera. You can preview your camera by clicking on the "Test" button.

On the "Network" tab, you can configure your network settings for your webcamXP server. You need to specify a port number for your server, which is the number that identifies your server on the Internet. By default, webcamXP uses port 8080, but you can change it to any other number between 1024 and 65535. However, you need to make sure that the port number you choose is not used by any other application or service on your computer or network.

You also need to enable remote access for your server by checking the box next to "Enable remote access". This will allow you to access your webcam from any device with an Internet connection. However, this also means that anyone who knows your IP address and port number can access your webcam as well. To prevent unauthorized access, you need to set up a password for your server by checking the box next to "Require password". You can then enter a secret password of your choice in the text box below.

For example, if you want to use port 8080 and a password of "secret.32", you need to enter these values in the corresponding fields on the "Network" tab.

Step 3: Forward port 8080 on your router

The final step is to forward port 8080 on your router. This is necessary because most routers use a feature called NAT (Network Address Translation) that assigns a private IP address to each device on your network. This means that your computer has an IP address that is different from the one that is visible on the Internet. Therefore, when someone tries to access your webcamXP server from outside your network, they will not be able to reach it unless you tell your router where to send the incoming traffic.

To forward port 8080 on your router, you need to log in to your router's web interface using a web browser. The exact steps may vary depending on your router model and firmware, but generally you need to find a section called "Port Forwarding", "Virtual Server", "Applications", or something similar. There, you need to create a new rule that forwards port 8080 (or whatever port number you chose) from the WAN (Internet) side of your router to the LAN (local network) 04f6b60f66
