Windows Software

P2P Client

The Point-2-Point protocol integrated in our HD camera line (not available for VGA models) allows you to connect to your camera from the internet without the need for a port forwarding rule inside your local router. The advantage of the P2P technology is that you can use it in places where traditional DDNS fails - like IPv6 DSLite tunnels and mobile (3G/LTE) routers without static WAN IP addresses. You can find Installation Guides to use the P2P connection with our mobile apps like our InstarVision for iPhone

In order to integrate your INSTAR HD IP camera in the P2P Client for Windows we recommend you to download the latest version from HERE.

Remark: The P2P Access using third-party software like the P2P Client is only possible with our 720p models (IN-5905 HD, IN-5907 HD, IN-6001 HD, IN-6012 HD, IN-6014 HD and IN-7011 HD). All INSTAR Full HD Cameras use a much improved P2P version that is not supported by third-party software. Accessing Full HD Cameras over P2P is only possible with our free InstarVision Apps for Android, iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone and Windows Metro.
