Ok, so here is my situation.  I am trying to gain remote access to a DVR camera system.  I opened the ports on the router and pointed them to the camera DVR (  I have used multiple port checker utilities to test the ports, and they are not open.  Here is what I have as far as equipment.

ADT camera DVR model DRC-HD400
D-Link DIR-820L Router
Windows XP PC
DVR is wired directly to the router

I notice that on the router when I check the status tab, instead of a public IP address, I am getting a private IP (  I put the DVR into a DMZ, I called the ISP and had them disable DHCP and NAT on their end so that the DSL modem is in bridge mode.  None of this is working to get me a clear path to the DVR.  When I check it gives me an address of  I can ping this address, however I can not open ports.  Any help or ideas would be appreciated.
