Re: remote access to DVR behind router

Hi Desi

I would like to give you step by step parameters to fix the problem. However there is no enough information. Model of DVR is important so we can know what kind of configuration it requires. Also your steps, What you have done so far? Have pinged the IP address of the DVR? usually DVRs doesnt require a special DNS configuration most of them works like IP cameras. If you provide the model info I can I can try to provide guidance accordingly.

How to find dvr ip address

what do you want the DVRs local IP address on your LAN or your internets public IP address?

to see the local IP that the DVR is on, check the menu's in the DVR as if configured properly you should have it set up as a static IP on your LAN...

if you can not find it there, you should be able to log into your router and view connected devices... some routers are better than others, but you will probably only be able to see devices that are connected and assigned an IP address from your routers DHCP table..

if you want your public internet IP address then go to but in order to view your DVR from a different location on the internet you will need to set up port forwarding on your router - the DVR manual should show what ports need to be forwarded...

you may also want to consider using a dynamic DNS service if you do not have a static IP from your internet provider... most DVRs that I have encountered provide a dynamic DNS service..

How do I configure to remotely monitor a DVRC264-16ME with Apple based computers?

Remote access setup is the same a with a PC. Each router is different but the apple versus PC issue is not. Once remote access is setup, you will access the DVR interface using the IP address you have chosen. If you need help setting remote access up, call us. We offer the service for minimal cost. If you want to do it yourself which can take hours and will possibly make you pull your hair out, then research your specific router model number and make sure you port forward the proper ports that your DVR or NVR asks for and insert them into your router firewall, pointing them to your DVR or NVR's local IP address.

I have a dlink DIR-615 attached remotely to another home router system. It is hardwired via a LAN port and I connect to internet via the remote DLINK router via wire or wireless just fine. Problem is I...

After you change the IP address of your Router, you have to reset your Network Card IP address if it is Dynamic. If your IP address is Static you need to manually make these changes from within Windows. Else, reset your computer and try accessing the newly issued IP address for your Router.

Close all Browser Windows and Programs before continuing.
From the Command Prompt, type:

C:\> ipconfig /release

Press Enter, and then type:

C:\> ipconfig /renew

Now try and access the New Router IP.

How can i map my public ip address to th natted ip private?

It's mapped automatically by your ISP, the real question is what are you trying to accomplish?
  • Are you looking to trying to run some type of service, host a web server, ftp etc?
  • Are you trying to enable a remote connection to a PC/server behind a nat router?
  • Are you wanting to configure a dynamic IP? (This maps a host name ex: to your non static ip assigned by your ISP)

Please comment back so I can help you!

You need to know the ip address of your dvr. It might have a factory set ip address or a dynamic ip address from the router. You can then use this ip address to access your dvr.

If your dvr has a static ip, that static ip should be in the same range as the router's ip address so that the router can communicate with the dvr.
