    Hi everyone,

    I recently setup a Camera (DVR) system for a good friend of mine who just opened a restaurant. We are able to access the cameras just fine internally (LAN), but not externally (WAN).

    I port forwarded, or 'pinholed' as this router uses, ports 9000 and 80 (changed the routers web port to 81 so there would be no conflict). I grabbed the external ip for the network and immediately tried connecting from home (I was doing everything remotely), and could not access the cameras, neither with the dvr software, nor with internet explorer.

    Any help!?

    Thanks!!


    EDIT: I believe he has a dsl line. I wonder if we'd need to change the configuration in the modem itself?

    What's the brand and model of the modem? Sometimes a "modem" turns out to be a modem/router combo. :)

    Sorry,

    Looks like ATT might be his internet provider. I'll have to get the brand but when I was there it didn't look like it was a router/modem combo. I'll make sure.
