Hi. I have a PlusNet HUB1 I have just purchased an Apexis IP Camera and I have it working fine on the home network but the only way I can access remotely is via the HTTP choice on the dropdown list in the Port Forwarding section of the advanced Hub 1 menu. Of course the default port for HTTP is port 80 which is wide open to hacking. I wish therefore to use my own allocated input port but unlike the dropdown list to the right ( where you select a device ) there is no facility to define your own bespoke item & port. Unless I have missed something here. Can anyone help please ?. Thanks
Fixed! Go to the fix.

You can create a new rule at Advanced settings->Firewall->Port forwarding->Manage games and applications->Add new game or application.
Now you're stuck with me because my new ISP doesn't run a forum
Re: PlusNet Hub 1 port forwarding. Need to be able to specify receiving port # but cant see how.
Many thanks. . "managing games & applications" on the next page enabled adding a device ( the camera) which then appeared on the previous page dropdown list amongst the games etc. I could them set up a port to direct to the camera's IP address. The only problem is that I'm getting "page not found" after I put in the correct ( camera login) password despite finding the page to present the password request. Probably a camera problem so I will proceed with the camera now. Thanks again for the help. Ian K.
