Cant open port? or use port forward
Posted on 2009-05-12
I have 4 computers at home. One of them having DVR card to record camera activities. The great US Robotics router is used to connect the internet and rout home network.
I have configured the router to connect the net.
Then configured the wireless security.
Router IP: 192.168.1.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
IP Range: 192.168.1.2 To 254
My PC: Vista (192.168.1.2)
DVB PC: I installed and configured the Digital Video recorder on (192.168.3)
DVR Software is: ShareBit and DVR ports are:
Net Trans Port: 5191
Web Server Port: 80
FTP Server Port: 21
ShareBit has Server and Client software. I installed Server on 192.168.1.3
And installed client on my PC 192.168.1.2
Both working fine
On my PC, when I go to IE and write the address 192.168.1.3; I can access and view all cameras. So, Client software and IE plug-ins are good on LAN.
Then I went to my nieber's PC and installed client software (just to share the outdoor camera). Software is working perfectly.
But when I tried to access the camera using IP address. It did not work.
I came back home and setup no-ip.com (dynDNS) as: cam.biguae.com and DMZ my router traffic to 192.168.1.3 (which is DVR server).
When I try to access the camera by hostname. It is redirecting me the router page. However, by local IP address is fine (192.168.1.3).
I then did then tried to use the virtual servers options but gave me same result (It is redirecting me the router page).
Then tried the IP Filtering Inbound Filters to redirect traffics to the DVR server but it gave me same result (It is redirecting me the router page).
I went back to my nieber's PC and tried it using hostname. It did not detect or route anything at all. It just says page not found. Even when I use the port number after the hostname.
Note: I also opened the ports in server pc using network connection firewall.
Any idea what is the problem??
