We used to setup 4 IP CAM DCS 950G, with a DDNS hostname. (e.g abcd.dyndns.org..) We had do the port forwarding, CAM A:81,5000,5001,5100: CAM B:82,6000,6001,6100 and so on.. I would like to check with you, the 4 CAMS work fine at first, can be viewed both locally and remotely, but slowly 1 by 1 failed. What will be the possibilities make this happen?
The for CAM ip is set to stactic, but my router is a DHCP, but i guess this is not the problem since the DDNS is there. Or did i go wrong somewhere with the configuration?

First of all, as this may not be able to be handled by a simple question and answer, it would be better placed in the common discussion forum.
But just some general considerations: your cams should have each its static internal IP address outside the DHCP range of the router. The forwarder rules on the router should precisely point to these IP addesses for all the needed ports. DDNS is not related to this, as this simply associates a hostname with your one public WAN IP address. (D)DNS is nothing to do with ports or protocols, just with resolving names to IP addresses.

Thanks for feedback, one more thing i need to ask is related ddns.. I type in my IP address in ie address bar (eg 192.168.0.182:82), and i am able to access and view my cam now. But why is it i type in the domain name (eg www.mysite.dyndns.org) and prompt me the error " The webpage "www.mysite.dyndns.org" cannot be found, DNS error occurred. Server cannot be found. The link may be broken."
I had login to my account and the hostname is there, seems like everything is fine.
Can you help me with this please..
Once again.. your kind response and help is highly appreciated.

As I said, please place such queries into the common DDNS forum. This is a platform for simple questions and answers.
Just in brief, don't use "www.", but use the port number: mysite.dyndns.org:82
Your hostname does not have a www. in front of it, does it? This is only possible with DynDNS Pro.
