New Router DG8041 port forwarding

Message 2 of 2

I have recently received my new DG8041 router, works well having gigabyte ports, and wifi is much faster than the old HG633. However cannot get it to forward ports as required by my IP Camera (ICAMI) which is on I have set up Port 554 to forward to this IP, but port checks say it is still closed. Guess there is something I have overlooked. Attach screen shots of my settings, anyone any idea what I am not doing, thanks.

The problem is that port 554 is UDP, not TCP and therefore is not compatible with port checking websites & will always report as closed, even when working OK. It is normally used for the video/audio, but not control data. Are you sure that there is not another port you need to forward?
