When users need to open an internal device to the public Internet, they need to do something to protect the resource from hackers. DDNS is a popular feature that is always used to avoid internal devices suffering external attacks. All Milesight routers support DDNS and multiple types of third party DDNS services. Here, we will use one of the service types Dyn DNS to configure DDNS below.
- Dyn DNS Account
- Any Milesight Router/CPE
- A Camera under Router Subnet
Step 1. Create a Hostname on Dyn DNS platform.
Access to My Dyn Account, click Add Hostname.
Host Name: Type in a hostname of your choice into the Hostname field and select one of the domains from the drop-down menu. This will be your device’s new web address.
Service Type: Select Host with IP address.
IP address: Type in your current router public IP address into the IP Address field.
TLS: If https will be used to access later, enable TLS. Here we disable it.
1. If users unknown their router network IP address, go to check ip on one computer inside of your network.
2. If the user hasn’t registered a Dyn DNS account before, please click here to create an account first.
Then click Activate.
Step 2. Enable and configure Dyn DDNS service type on Milesight router below, then click Save and Apply it.
Service type: Choose Dyn DNS.
User name: Type in your Dyn DNS account
User ID: User-define
Password: Fill in the password of Dyn DNS account
Hostname: Paste related hostname created on Dyn DNS platform before.
Use HTTPS: Disable
Wait a moment, we can see that the DDNS status change to Connected.
Step 3. Now we can use the hostname on a browser from external computer and it would allow us to access the Router GUI page.
Step 4. Access to subnet devices in router LAN.
