Port Forwarding IP Cameras

I have tried unsuccefully to setup Port Forwards for my WiFi IP cameras.  When I set the Ports up in the XFi app, I select the camera from the list  of devices seen by the XFinity Router and enter the port.  When the app sets up the port it assigns a different IP address than the camera address was assigned.  If I go to my browers and use the IP address the camera is assigned, I can see the camera.  If I use the address for the Port Forward, it times out.

 

How do I resolve this issue?
