setup a virtual server ;NAT" on my new Linksys AC1200 dual band wifi gigabit router EA6350

Hi Experts,

I had a dlink wireless router and had a virtual server setup to that the external ip address of my modem pointed to an internal ip address that my dvr has 192.168.0.106. Well that wireless router crashed and I replaced it with this Linksys AC1200 and i'm now trying to setup the virtual Server on this new wireless router. I need help with this because it's not working for me. I go in the new router and click on connectivity>advanced routing and I have NAT enabled and I add a static route as follows:

route name: offivedvr
desitnation ip address : 192.168.0.106 " the dvr address"
subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.0.1
Interface LAN

and i'm able to ping myofficedvr.no-ip.org and get replies but i when i try to view the cameras using supercam it can't find the server.

You are missing something. What port are you setting your NAT to?
Enabling NAT is only one step for routing traffic to a specific destination.

Hi spartan,
 Yes I think I just need to add the port numbers but I don't see anywhere on this router to add that info? It's a new router that was 140.00 so I can't imagine it doesn't have the capacity.

ok, so i went into apps/gaming and then to Single port forwarding and added
application name - office dvr
external port 8081
internal port 8081
protocol - both
ip address - 192.168.0.106
enabled - true
and it's still not working.

i went to connectivity> advanced router and I have nothing there. I should only add this under apps/gaming right?
