Hit My DVR from IPhone

OK, so this isn't really for me, it's for my boss.  I believe he may be deranged, he wants to see the cameras on the DVR from his Iphone.

I started with ports on the DVR, it wants to use port 3000.
They use a Linksys Firewall, so I put in a rule that said something along the lines of "if you hit the WAN interface of this firewall with port 3000, forward it to 192.168.2.100" which is the IP of the DVR.

I have the username and password correct, but I get a timeout error trying to login (using Pegaso Lite).

My DVR has entries for DynDNS and such, but I can't see how that would work since the DVR is behind the NAT firewall.

Hope to hear some suggestions!

dyndns is only useful in that it gives you a name rather than a bunch of numbers to remember and if you have dynamic dhcp from your isp and your ip address changes it will take care of that for you.. as long as you have the client duc running.

you may or may not be able to view the dvr as it may be using flash and apple products don't support flash.
