Firewall Problems, Windows 7

Post by takedownca » Mon Dec 31, 2018 11:46 am

I can't access my webcam remotely. I searched the forum and tried all the various steps to make this work, but no go. UPNP didn't work for me, but I believe my ports are manually forwarded correctly. If I disable the Windows Firewall, Am I Online reports back successfully, so I'm pretty sure it's a firewall issue. I've created a firewall exception for the following files:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Yawcam\Yawcam.exe
C:\Program Files (x86)\Yawcam\Yawcam_Service.exe
C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_191\bin\javaw.exe
C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_191\bin\java.exe
C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_191\bin\javaws.exe

What else can I do to make this work? Thanks!

If you have a home router, have you checked that UPNP is enabled in your home router? UPNP might be disabled. You could enable it so that Yawcam can get everything configured. Once everything is configured, you can disable UPNP. Give this a try and see if this resolves your issues.
