Port forwarding

Port forwarding

Postby Zeph » Sun Aug 21, 2011 8:52 pm

Hi,

I just purchased the K-guard h.264 kit and have it all set up and running fine, except I can't view the images over the internet, I'm on Skybroadband with a netgear DG934G router, but I can't gain access to forward the ports 80/9000.

When I type in my ip address I am asked for a username / password, it is not admin / password and sky will not give me the password.

Anyone had this problem ?

Ok,

I've found the password for the router (admin / sky) and have managed to forward port 9000 but port 80 says "service port number defined by another seervice"

Check out www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/sky-broadband-tutorial-section/10975-how-set-up-port-forwarding-internal-web-server.html

It describes how to set up the router for a webserver but the process will be the same for setting up the router for your DVR.

Without being able to see the actual admin panel it looks like the router is already set up with a service on port 80: "HTTP(TCP:80)" so it should be a matter of using that to forward to the dvr.

Thanks for the reply,

I managed to forward port 90 and change the setting on the DVR to match, I can now connect using IP Cam Viewer on my HTC wildfire but only on my home network.

Also i'm assuming that 192.168.0.1 is the same as 192.168.000.001 as the latter is the only way I can enter it on my DVR

Yeah, 192.168.0.1 is the same as 192.168.000.001. You can ignore any leading zeros in IP addresses when they're written like that.

Are you using your internet IP to access the cameras from outside your network? This will be different from the one you use to access it from within your network. It won't start with 192.168.#.# The router should tell you what it is or you can go to www.whatismyip.com to find it.

Thanks !

I've now got it working with ip camera viewer, asee connects to server then says no response.


Is there a way of viewing the cameras using an old Imac g5 ?

There is no way of viewing these on a Mac unfortunately.
