port forwarding i.p

hijenkx asked 2 years ago

Hi,looking for a bit of help on port forwarding,
As I am very new to this, I am teaching myself on my home dvr setup, I have a netgear router, following the setup intructions everything is fine until I add my I.P address in the firewall rules,the message comes up the the I.P address is illegal,is this because it is a public non static I.P address or am I not adding the correct I.P address ? as I say I'm very new to the whole I.T thing

Thanks for your question hijenkx.

I suspect you are entering your External IP in the Port Forwarding setup instead of the Internal IP of the DVR which is what the setup will need.

The Internal IP of the DVR should be something like 192.168.0.?? or 192.168.1.?? or 192.168.2.?? depending on the Netgear Router you have.
