      Procedure to force settings to work:

      only workaround I could find to get all cameras to connect!

      add camera Manually-
      enter int. ip
      http port (actual)
      streaming port (actual)
      remote
      enter ext. host
      http port (actual)

      go into cameras network settings
      change Internal streaming port to your httpS port
      app will then add secure port automatically!

      note- with older cams this adds the secure port but removes the streaming (doesn't matter)

      hope this helps someone else, as app should force manual settings...

      Solution:

      my older foscams don't need streaming port (optional)
      menu view and live view still work correctly

      with my newer foscams I entered the streaming port (rtsp)
      and now live view works

      also noticed that if I go back into settings and change my streaming port to my HTTPS port;
      the app automatically created a new row SECURE port and updated streaming port automatically too!!!

      app seems to have buggy network settings...

      remote connection now works with all three ports now showing up in settings!

      Update:

      While doing below first gave me a successful "test external access" when I tried connecting remotely it would not connect.

      Now when I go back into app test results are negative.

      I'm using my Foscam DDNS hostname, which works perfectly through web.

      Definitely, an issue with the selection of HTTPS protocol!

      Same, I could not manually add hostname & HTTPS port (cannot input protocol)

      Solution (android):

      First manually add (locally) with IP & HTTP port.

      Then add your remote hostname in settings (no protocol but with httpS port)
