I have switched over to a 4G LTE Router and am unable to port forward at this point. Anyone else using maybe T-Mobile on a LTE device and are unable to port forward?

Thanks

that is expected as you dont have a routeable external ip. Some providers will offer you one for a fee. Otherwise see ngrok or hamachi

Thanks, do you feel pretty confident that either of those two programs are secure? Thanks again.

it depends how you use them, hamachi is a vpn so most secure. Both are way more secure than port forwarding which is not at all secure.

If you don't "trust" external programs/networks (like hamachi), you can always try to setup OpenVPN server on a VPS, and have your router (as a VPN client) outbound connect to that VPS, enabling you to connect to your camera's that way through your VPS.

Hi,

If I install ngrok on my computer (windows 10). does the computer needs to be turned on the all the time, to have access to the camera ?

tnx
