Having a static IP for the RedEye is not enough. If you want to control RedEye outside of your home, you can set up
remote access via port forwarding or VPN. If your ISP blocks forwarding
on port 80, 81, or 82, then port forwarding will not be a viable option,
but VPN doesn't have the same limitation. http://thinkflood.com/support/redeye/redeye-remote-access/
I have found out my ISP does not block out ports 80-81-82. I have a static IP in place with port fowarding. Through my browser, what do I put in the address bar from my laptop out side of home, in order to find my pro at home.
To access it from the browser you should be able to use its Global IP address. To access it in the App, just make sure you have the "Find RedEye by IP Address" entry filled out with the serial number and the IP that your ISP assigns to your router.
I really can't stress enough how much of a bad idea it is to port forward from the Internet to your RedEye, UNLESS you only ever access it from a specific IP ( which you can then let through the firewall, rather than letting the whole net in. )
You also need to set up port forwarding on your router to redirect all requests to ports 80, 81, and 82 to your RedEye (using it's IP address on your home network). There are two issues with this:
- Your public IP address as assigned by your ISP is likely dynamic. So, whatever it is today, it might be a different address tomorrow. You really need to use a Dynamic DNS service that will work in conjunction with your router and provide a URL that will always redirect to your router regardless of its current IP address. In this case, the URL you would type into your browser would be something like:
