Hello, I've been dealing with Blackberry with no luck getting my Cisco WVC210 or my Linksys WVC54CPS network cameras to run RTSP on my Sprint Blackberry 8330 phone. I have a Linksys WRT300N wireless router too. Blackberry tech support points to ActiveX but I've informed them that VLC works??? Thus the RTSP does work but again not on my phone. I've done Port Forwarding and also Port Ranging which work on VLC but again NOT on the cell. No luck on a solution yet but still working.

Does VLC work OUTSIDE the home or business where the cam's are? You always test internally, then externally with VLC, then you can try your cell phone. Make sure you are forwarding the proper RTSP port (554 by default on TCP) and port 5000 is the transport, and this is UDP.
Worst case, disable all port forwarding in your router, set a STATIC LAN IP on the WVC210 and then DMZ the router to that IP. Then write down the WAN IP address, and plop that in your cell phone using rtsp://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/12345
* where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP and 12345 is YOUR access code you set in the WVC210

I am able to access my cameras outside of my home with no problem using vlc with rtsp and with ip or dns. It would be nice if Cisco and/or Linksys could supply some fix or work-around? Unfortunate that this Sprint Blackberry 8330 doesn't work as advertized and it's not just the 8300 series. Sure doesn't appear to be 'research in motion' but 'no research'.

I was able to get some level of functionality with a secondary program called Mobiscope. This can be purchased thru the website mobiscope.com or thru the sprint store. You can also use this program to view your webcams as well.

The only way I can view the camera on my cell is the DMZ function you explain. The issue I have is there are 4 cameras to monitor and I can't DMZ them all.
Assuming I go back and forward ports for each of the 4 cameras (RTSP and RTP according to the available ranges).
Each of the 4 cameras has a static IP address.
Each camera has a remote access port associated with that IP.
Each remote acces port has been forwarded in the router.
Mobil streaming access code has been set.
RSTP has been forwarded.
RTP has been forwarded.
Can you please walk me through the actual address to type in the cell phone ?
eg. camera 4
STATIC LAN IP 192.168.1.118
remote access port is 2730 (forwarded in router)
STATIC WAN IP 99.XXX.XX.184
RSTP port 554 forwded to 192.168.1.118
RTP port 5000 forwarded to 192.168.1.118
From my browser, what would I enter....
DO I have to enable DDNS and subscribe to a TZO ?

yes you still subscribe to TZO
Get a domain name example: johndoe.mylinksyscam.com
(on the camera web user interface, under image, under enable mobile streaming, put in an access code - example 12345)
enter access code after port number
for basic computer web viewing from a different network you enter:
just a pointer - only subscribe one camera to tzo
use a different port for each camera - you said 2730 is on camera 4
so use port 2729 for camera 3, 2728 for camera 2 ...
so when you enter your address to each camera you will enter:
this way you can get a new one year subscription for each camera every year.
for rtsp you will need to use a different port to forward each camera - you used 554 already, I suggest u change that port - you said the camera is on port 2730 (for remote access) so use port 3730 for rtsp.
for camera 3 you could use port 2729(as mentioned earlier) and a rtsp port of 3729
It really gets into a lot of port forwarding....
hope this helps
