This post explains exactly what is going on with my Internet service
That article mentions double NAT, which is commonly used on wireless networks. The reason for this is simple, there are not enough IPv4 addresses to go around. Even without smart phones, there aren't enough to meet the needs around the world. I mentioned IPv6 earlier. This is the only solution to this. As it is, we've been using hacks, such as NAT, to get around the shortage of IPv4 addresses. I have an IPv6 subnet, which has 2^72 addresses, about a trillion times the entire IPv4 address space. Every IPv6 capable device has an IPv6 address and can be reached from outside my network without worrying about nonsense such as NAT. Bottom line, IPv6 is the only way to move forward and avoid this sort of problem.

James, we spoke about this before, and I was never able to get it to work. More than likely something I'm doing wrong, but I will look into it again, and see what I can do.

James, I have ipv6 setup (gogonet), and I can ping my home computer from my Android phone, not connected to my home network. So I can see my home computer from the outside.

Now, how do I access it, and all the cameras. I tried Remote Desktop from my phone, no luck.

You're running gogonet on your home computer, which provides IPv6 addresses to it. Are you running in the subnet mode, so that it provides IPv6 addresses to other devices? You have to register to use subnet or static address modes.

Also, I'm not aware of the gogoc client for Android. Are you saying you have IPv6 on your phone while away from home?

I also use gogonet on my home network. I have it running in subnet mode on my Linux based firewall/router so that every IPv6 capable device can use it. If you're running Windows, that gogo client also supports IPv4 tunnelling over IPv6, so that the tunnel acts as a VPN. If the devices don't support IPv6, you'd use that method.

Yes, running gogonet on my windows 8 laptop. I'm connecting with credentials. Under "home access" I have mapped one of the foscam cameras and this laptop. They have been given "names/addresses" successfully.

On my Android phone, which is using it's own data plan I can ping the address of my home laptop and the foscam camera , using the name/address given by gogo6.

When I try to access the camera with a remote viewer program on my phone, it does not work.

I have never used that Home access connection, so I don't know what the issues are. Perhaps you could ask on the gogo6 site. The discussion forums are on the left side, towards the bottom of the page.

The reason for this is simple, there are not enough IPv4 addresses to go around.
I recently watched a video by Vint Cerf that says there are about 5.5 billion mobile devices, but only 4.3 billion possible IPv4 addresses. So, it's physically impossible for all devices connected to the cell network to have a public IPv4 address, even ignoring the fact that most of the addresses have already been taken by wired connections.

Guess I'll go away again for another year and a half and by then hopefully something somewhere will have changed, because there's presently no way this is ever going to work.

Google remote desktop works fine, as does Teamviewer, but that's not what I want. I should be able to access any device on my home network directly, if I feel like it. Lousy isp's. :)

Thanks guys....

Glen were you ever able to view your Foscam from your phone when you home network is hooked up to the Bell turbo hub?
Any help would be appreciated as I have the same issue.

Thanks
Wayne
