Bt home hub dynamic dns not updating
Step 1 We will already assume your camera is configured and you can access it on your local network and externally from another location over the Internet.
Step 2 Log into your camera as an administrator and enter the setup pages by clicking on the ‘setup’ tab.
Note: In some Panasonic models you are given the choice of using the Viewnetcam service or using a third-party Dynamic DNS service such as Dyn
We would suggest using the Viewnetcam service unless you experience difficulty with it.
The problem with this is that it’s likely that this address will change next time turn off and then back on the router or camera.
The first step is to set a fixed address on the camera so that it doesn’t change and you can always find it.
How would you be able to call home if you didn’t know your number? You can often liaise with your ISP to secure yourself a static IP address, meaning your public IP address will never change, but you will often pay extra for this service.
This is your identifier on the internet and is unique all over the world.
This article will look at how this is configured in a Panasonic camera using their free Dynamic DNS service:
is an online service provided free by Panasonic which will automatically update your public IP address when your ISP changes it. The system is built into your Panasonic IP camera and when activated, your camera will make periodic connections to the Viewnetcam service supplying its current IP address.
To do this, you will have to go into the configuration screen for your camera and set the option to have a fixed IP address and not use DHCP.
Many times, unchecking DHCP will present you with the necessary fields for an IP address, subnet mask, gateway and DNS. The easiest place to get this information is to go on a PC that is on the network and open a DOS window (on Windows, press the START button and then type “command” or on a Mac, run Terminal).
