Info is simply a collection of a lot of system internals that are interesting if you have to start troubleshooting your set up. You DDNS access doesn´t work? Check the DDNS status (has to be successful) and the UPnP Status (most likely has to be deactivated). You can also try accessing your camera via it´s WAN IP (instead of DDNS address).
