I always have trouble with this stuff, but it seems really simple?
I have Comcast box (coax coming in and Cat 5 data cable going out, into the wan of my cisco small business firewall).
The cisco says it's wan IP is 10.1.10.10 and its gateway is 10.1.10.1
On the lan side of the cisco, devices have 192.168.1.0/24 ip addresses.
we put a security camera DVR on the lan with ip 192.168.1.9 and want to get to it from outside.
there's 2 ports the dvr company says we need to forward 40085 and 49009
in the cisco I have 2 rules doing that - in on 40085 , out on port 40085 to ip 192.168.1.9
then in the Comcast box, I logged in and under firewall, set up 2 port forwarding rules
40085-40085 forwards to 40085 and the IP is 10.1.10.10 (right, where the packets are going to - the wan of the cisco router?)
49009-49009 forwards to 49009 and the IP is 10.1.10.10
still says the ports are closed. what am I doing wrong?
