I setup a wireless webcam server in my house, but in order to view the live stream without a time limit, I need to enable UPnP on my Time Capsule.

1. Can this be done?

2. If so, how?

3. If not, other options?

    Apple calls UPnP....Port Mapping


    Open AirPort Utility - Click Manual Setup


    Click the Advanced (gear) icon


    Click Port Mapping (If Port Mapping does not appear, you have the Time Capsule set up in Bridge Mode. You will need to set up UPnP or Port Mapping on your "main" gateway or router in this case)


    Click the + (plus) button at the bottom of the list to set up your service and assign specific port numbers according to your webcam documentation

    Thanks for the help Rob.

    This seems easy enough to do, however, I do not know what the parameters I need to set are for the camera.


    I am using a DLink DCS-930L, if anyone knows the port forwarding specifics, please share!!

    You'll probably have a lot better luck on this if you post in a D-Link Forum. It's possible.....but very unlikely that a user that is familiar with advanced settings on a D-link router will be checking an Apple forum.


    The dcoumentation on your camera should provide some information about what ports and services will be required.

    I have a post in the D-Link forum as well for max exposure.

    I did not see any parameters listed in the users manual as far as specific port forwarding settings...
