My connections are as follows: Cable Modem to Vonage device to Switches (for distribution to all rooms in the house)
I have a cable modem with the IP address 184.108.40.206.
I have a Vonage device connected to the cable modem first, this acts as a router and it has the following address 192.168.15.1
I have three switches which connect to the Vonage device and distribute data throught the house via Cat 5e
The network dvr is connected to a port on one of the switches and using a static IP 192.168.15.10.
Here's the settings on the network dvr: Static, ports 9000 and 8080. The subnet mask is 255.255.255.0
The gateway IP address is 192.168.15.1 and the same IP address is used for DNS servers one and two
I've used the Vonage device advanced configuration to port forward 192.168.15.10 \ ports 9000 and 8080 (both TCP and UDP)
I can connect fine from within the house using a browser with the following http://220.127.116.11:8080
, but not remotely. Incidentally, the supplied Network DVR PC Client software supplied allows me to connect remotely without any problems. It's the remote connectivity from a browser IE or Firefox that's an issue. I get a connection timed out message. I did update the security settings as per the instructions to allow download of activex controls but no success. Even using port 80 didn't help. The vendor suggested that I change the port setting 8080 to something else like 8081, I have not tried that yet. The vendor thinks that 8080 is being used by something else.Edited by RNaval - 9/24/12 at 1:29pm
