Question about Arris SURFboard SBG900 Wireless Router (DHSBG900)
I have a register DNS on dyndns which works.
Even withotu this, if I use the ISP provided IP address and specify the port for my local LAN side IP camera, which is configured as port 800, nothing gets through.
i.e 192.168.15.2:800 works fine on the local netowrk.
But if I specify xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:800 (where xxx is my ISP given IP address) I cannot get to the camera.
I have enabled port forwarding of port 800 in the Router to 192.168.15.2, and also given a ststic IP address on 192.168.15.2 to the camera (with the camera MAC address as the idenfifyer).
I notice the correct.02 IP address beign assigned to the camera, so the static route works fine, but fro soem reason the port 800 is not beign forward to .02 Ip address
Odds are; you will likely find mdbs_daemon or something on most of your computers on your LAN also doing traffic on this port. It's probably not a good idea to use this value.
From my experience in networks and routing, you are also better off if you can put the port up in the unprivileged region (1024~65535). The reason is that hackers typically spend the time down lower than this and they are looking for known services. It takes too long to scan ports up in the high regions, and you are more likely to be discovered for your activity. Try using port numbers that are strange; eg. 8888 or 5555 and similar. A lot of routers will let you do a "redirect" such as bringing port 8888 on the outside to port 80 on the inside to your device.
