Not sure what is going on but is anyone familiar with ADT DVR security?
Not sure if what I need to do is correct?
This is my issue:
Client wishes to access a DVR from a remote computer.
ADT A-ADRP9E DVR:
Unable to upgrade the firmware for some reason even though I have followed this guide to a tee:
Under LAN settings (Setup) my only options are:
IP Adress: 192.168.1.129
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Do have the option to change USER and ADMIN passwords, but NO other options
I believe I have to change the IP address and Gateway
IP 192.168.0.* (*whatever meaning as long as it is between 1-255 and does not match an existing IP address on the network)
Gateway: 192.168.0.1 I believe I need to set it to the routers Gateway
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0 No change?
connected (bridged) to a Westhill modem using verizon dsl.:
Router IP 192.168.0.101
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
I know the ports have to be forwarded and should not be a issue, but not sure if the ports be directed to the DVR's IP or the computer?
Location IP address 188.8.131.52
ADT RAS 2.8.0 (Remote Administration System)
I know the client has to be added (using the DVR's IP address), but I am not sure about the DVRDNS server name. The above manual does not show a DVRDNS Server name as an option (page 7), but the RAS 2.8.0 program does have this option
I have setup a remote server using DYNDNS.org with the above Location IP address (184.108.40.206), so can I use that or do I have to pay for a program that has DVRDNS Server?
Remote computer running XP
Any assistance is greatly appreciated
