Im doing a small project in order to gain some knowledge on connecting to live cameras using DVR's. The DVR im working with is a Digital Spire 2 Plus.
I have managed to view the camera over an internet browser on a seperate computer but on the same network..
I know want to view it off site and 2 miles away from the actual Camera and DVR..
I Have a static IP address. I was told that if i type in my external IP address off site that i could connect easily to it but it wont load?
Any help would be very much appreicated!!!!
Thanks in advance.
Assuming that you have a router/firewall of some sort, you need to first determine what ports are needed for the DVR. The DVR needs to have a static address, and that address has to be assigned to what is called a NAT or Pinhole firewall rule in your router to redirect external requests to the internal IP address of your DVR.
