The following ports need to be forwarded for a D-Link DCS-930L:
D-Link DCS-930L - PC
- TCP: 80, 5150, 5160
Setting Up a Port Forward for a D-Link DCS-930L
You might need to forward some ports in your router when you use a D-Link DCS-930L. By forwarding ports you allow connection requests coming from the internet to be directed to a D-Link DCS-930L.
By default routers do not allow incoming network requests. By forwarding a port you can overcome this limitation.
Before Forwarding a Port
Before you can forward a port you need to know the following things:
- Your router's IP address.
- Your camera's internal IP address.
- A list of TCP and UDP ports that need to be forwarded.
Find the IP Address of Your Router
The easiest way to locate your router's IP address is to run our free Router Detector utility. Our Router Detector tool is free to use and is part of our Network Utilities software.

How To Forward Ports for a D-Link DCS-930L
You can use our Network Utilities software to automatically forward ports for you. Our Network Utilities software allows you to add port forwards and also remove them when you no longer need them to maximize your network security.
Alternatively you can do it by hand. The normal process for forwarding a port is:
- Begin by logging in to your router.
- Locate your routers port forwarding section.
- Put your camera's IP address in the proper box in your router.
- Put the TCP and UDP ports for a D-Link DCS-930L in the corresponding boxes in your router.
You probably will need to reboot your router for the changes to take effect.
