I am trying to set up the DVR so as we can see it on our local network, as well as from outside the office.  For some reason, I can not seem to get it working properly.  I have set up pinholes and still no luck.

Here is the info
I set up the DVR with a Static IP address of
I have the following port info set up:
Port: 9000
Web Port: 8080
I set up the mac address as advised by them as well: 00-1A-2B-3C-4D-5E

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated
Thank you

Does this DVR serve out web pages?  If so, from inside the office, you would type into the address bar of the web browser and the images would pop up.

Try that first and then we can work on getting it outside the office.

I actually got it setup.  I was spacing out and not using the external ip address.  But it is all good now.
