Setting up public IP through sonicwall

I have a DVR system for my IP camera systems and I have a sonicwall firewall. I need to access my dvr through my public IP address while out of office. I did the following steps:

Creating the necessary Address Objects

step 1
Then I did

step 2

Creating the appropriate NAT Policies which can include Inbound, Outbound, and Loopback

Then I did

Step 3

Creating the necessary Firewall Access Rules

I did these steps and still cant access the DVR system when outside my network.

I would suggest to simply register under the vendor.

firewall rule is incorrect

should be source = any
destination = DVR Public

for the rest you got it correct

J Spoor posted the exact same thing that I was going to post. Your last screenshot shows your error.

You said from "DVR Public to DVR Private"... you've restricted the allowed incoming connections from the public IP your DVR is using to the private IP of your DVR. A senseless rule that will never work.

Source should Any, which means anywhere on the internet. Destination should be DVR Public. Remember that Access Rules don't get into the top of translated sources or destination unlike NAT Policies.

Managing Security Policy in a Changing Environment

The enterprise network environment is evolving rapidly as companies extend their physical data centers to embrace cloud computing and software-defined networking. This new reality means that the challenge of managing the security policy is much more dynamic and complex.

So if i have the source as any and the destination as DVR public ( which is my public ip address), still cant access it outside my network.

Looking again, it sounds like that there are additional ports you might need to open, like either port 80 or port 8080. How exactly are you trying to connect to your DVR, through your web browser?

You need to open more ports then. It looks like you may have only opened the streaming ports.

If in the web browser, you only go to the IP address, then you most likely need to open port 80 as well. If you have to specify a port number (i.e. ip_Address:5000), then you need to open that specific port.
