I am doing this for the first time so I don’t have any knowledge will this work or not, please help.
I am doing a network and IP cameras for small business.
What I wanted to do is this:
I have 4 IP cameras, connected into POE switch (8 port switch which has 4 POE ports)
Other 3 connections from the switch will be used for network computers.
The 8th connection from the switch will go to the second 10-port switch. (8*100 + 2*1000)
The other switch will be connected on this way:
Connections 1-8 for network computers.
Connection 9 goes from switch 1.
Connection 10 is going from cable rooter which is connected to the Internet.
I will have one PC connected to this switch which will be used to record video from IP cameras.
Now what concerns me is, if I want to connect to the PC which record video from home via Internet, how to do that.
I know that I must have fixed IP address, but how will I access a PC when all my network will have the same IP address on the Internet.
What do I need to configure? Switches or cable rooter?
Do I need managed or not managed switches?
