When you connect the camera remotely, you need to forward ports for the camera on the router based on which kind of connection you choose. Check below for detailed information.

Applies to: All Reolink products except battery-powered ones 

Media port: access via Reolink Client or Reolink App

HTTP & HTTPS port: access via a web browser (the latter port is more secure than the former one)

RTSP port: watch a live stream on the VLC player or other kinds of software using the RTSP stream.

Onvif port: access via the third-party software

Note: when loading the live stream on a web browser, the RTMP port needs to be forwarded.
