What does it require to get the Wyze PAN camera to show video stream over WAN?  It seems to work just fine with internal network, but over WAN C4 app just spins!  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Doesn't make sense.  WAN is just a 4sight connection (which is VPN to your home).

The only thing i can think of is that there is a 'publically accessible' tickbox that you can tick / untick for cameras that you may not have setup correctly.

I did check "publicly accessible" in the driver for Wyze camera, any other suggestions within the camera setup itself?
Uncheck that. That is only used if you have a public IP for your camera

I couldn't manage to get the CFW to work and broke the camera about six months ago. All I get now is an orange light even after following the instructions fully also. I cannot even use the normal Wyzecam app etc soo be careful...especially if you go through the hassle of importing to the UK...

I just got a new Wyze Pan v2 with starlight night vision, unfortunately I can't get it to flash the dafang firmware, just wanted to make sure this model (Pan v2) is not compatible? Any workaround for it?  I have the original Pan camera but I'd love to have another one in the system.
