you need activex controls running on internet explorer My O.S. is windows xp.
the Dvr network settings are as folllows:
Media Port 9000 (default)
Web Port 80 (default)
1P address 192.***.***.??? ( 1st 3 sets numbers set same as your routers ip addres .. last needs set as any open number available in your network.. see below for more info)
Subnet mask.. 255.255.255.000 ( FOUND IN CMD PROMPT OF COMPUTER)
GATEWAY 192.***.***.***.*** ( SAME ip AS YOUR ROUTER "INTERNAL IP")
To find your Ip address, have your ethernet cord plugged into 1 of the ports on the router.. click the start button on comuter then go to the run /search input box.. enter CMD.. when command center opens.. type in ipconfig , this will display your network configurations and ip address and subnet mask etc.. you need to pick a compatible number to finalize the ip address of the DVR.. again,,, it has to be the same as the routers ip except for the last set after the last . "dot) .. it has a range it has to stay in also.. you can pick something like 150 .. then check it in the cmd center, type in ping ***.***.***.150 if the ip number you entered is already assigned to another device in your network, you will have to use one that doesnt get a response when pinging..alternatively,you can also set your dvr to dhcp after having it pluggged into the router ,, the router will atomatically assign the dvr an ip,, find this ip,, write it down, then in your dvrs network settings, manually input that assigned ip as the Static ip (or locked in ip) you should be able to see the cameras /dvr an the lan connection after this set up, to view from afar (from another network or remotely, you need to open the ports on the router..
to do this, close all windows and running programs etc on your machine,, make sure you have an ethernet cord plugged into the computer to 1 of the ports on yur router.. open internet explorer or whatever browser you have .. in the browser bar , type in http://***.***.***.*** (your routers Ip address)
this will open your router for configuration..(sign in.. usualy admin admin if not secured or new.. I have a linksys.. so I went to the gaming tab/ port forwarding .. go to the multi port forwarding .. open ports 9000 80 and 18004 for both tcp and udp and assign these ports to the ip of the dvr that you created or copied from the orginal dhcp setting the router gave it.. remember the DVR has to be set on static in its network settings for this to work.
if you get it all set right, you can view your cameras remotely by entering your "external" ip address.. this can be found through your isp or searching :" what is my ip address... this is the address visible to the world.. its the modems address.. the routers address is behind the firewall and not visible to the world web( hopefully )..you can view dvr on lan by typing inthe local ip or your routers ip, but to view remotely, you need to type in the external ip in the browser bar. I can now view my cameras on my Droid Razr smart phone now, outside of my homw network.... the only app I have found to work is consistantly is ..KMEye.. downloaded fom the google playstore.. the mobile port is 18004 .. the address is external.. ( to find your external ip address, go to goolgle and just type in "what is my IP address.. and viola.. there it is.........I hope this mess helps someone.. cause I aint no IT guy. LOL
