Has anyone been able to pre-configure the pi cam on a rpi zero w so that the port forwarding is not needed?

I see a lot of cloud ip cam (nest, Amazon, Logitech) nowaday where you just enter the WiFi password and name and you can view your live feed from anywhere.

How are they doing that?

Is there a python code or Linux automation that would allow us to do the same?

  • You'll need a server to act as a relay between the RPi and the browser for this to work without port forwarding. – Dmitry Grigoryev Oct 4 '18 at 13:31
  • Can I do it with AWS EC2 ? – Fritz FABO Oct 5 '18 at 5:23
