I've set up a 16 channel DVR on my router, and forwarded the relevant port.

I now wish to access the DVR from an external network, and as I understand all I have to do is enter my IP: port# into a browser.

Can anyone tell me how I can obtain my IP: port#

Ok, I've figured out my Ip: port#

From what I'm told if I want to be able to access the pictures from my DVR security camera system from an external network, I need to forward the port which I have assigned to the DVR (which I have already done, and confirmed that the port is open).

Then I'm told that I should simply be able to enter my router's main IP along with the port number, something like this:

123.456.789.123:1111

into IE and I should be able to view the images from an external network.

Can anyone advise me if this is correct, or what I should do if it's wrong?

Thanks

I have tried this, and am still having no joy.

IE takes while as if it's going to load up a page, but then informs me that it cannot display the page.

Any suggestions please?

Your Welcome petrolh34d

What is the manufacturer, make and model of your router? And do you have any security i.e. WEP, WPA, MAC filtering on?

If you assigned your DVR an IP or if you know the IP address, can you ping your DVR?
--open your command prompt-->start>run>type cmd

When the command prompt is up---> type ping <your DVR's IP> (w/out the brackets)

Then right click and select all and then press enter and then copy in the forum.
