Remote View Home Security Cameras

nikaotech used Ask the Experts™
I have installed an EverFocus DVR at home with cameras inside and outside that I can view from home, assuming I could get a static IP from my ISP.  I just found out I can't even buy a static IP...Cox Communications doesn't offer it to home users!?

Thus, I'm hoping to be able to use the DDNS function on my Netgear WNDR3300 to remote view the DVR.  I've tried it, using an account I set up on but I must be missing something or don't fully understand how to set it up.

My ISP issues DHCP to the cable modem, and that IP remains valid for 3 months at a time.  So, if my cable modem is receiving from the ISP and I set my WNDR3300 to have a local address of and my DVR is, what do I need to do in port forwarding or whatever to be able to get to from outside the house?

Thanks in advance for any help!
