Important Message from Foscam Digital Technologies Regarding US Sales & Service

We, Foscam.US (aka Foscam Digital Technologies and now Amcrest Technologies), are an independent United States based distributor of "Foscam" branded products. We have been offering telephone support, US local warranty and building the Foscam brand in the US for the past 7 years. However, we are deeply saddened to report that, even after all of this, our overseas suppliers have decided to undercut us and supply to our major customers directly. For this reason, we have no choice but to suspend telephone support for all Foscam branded products. If you have purchased a Foscam camera directly from us or from one of our authorized retailers, technical support is still available via email at

For customers who have not purchased from us directly, we advise you to please contact Foscam Shenzhen or the distributor which you have purchased from. In the meantime, we have launched our own new brand of IP cameras called Amcrest, which has superior quality products and full telephone technical support 7 days per week. We hope you can support us in our new venture. For more information, please visit

Doing DDNS Service Settings

Postby Miki1579 » Sun Aug 07, 2011 6:44 am

Hello everyone,

I bought a Foscam FI8918W several days ago and I'm still trying to make it work. I'm following all the instructions of the installation guide but I'm stuck at 5.2 How to do DDNS Service Settings...
Everything goes well until the moment you have to change the basic network settings. I'm doing it like it's shown on the picture but it doesn't want to work... It's saying : error: illegal params. Nevertheless everything is filled in correctly... I don't understand why it doesn't work.

So please could someone be gentle and help me ? :(

Thank you
