Hi there. I have installed a Swann DVR on my home network and cannot reach it from my public IP. My system is as follows: - I am on an Eircom internet connection with an ADSL router, Netopia 2247NWG, with a dynamic IP address. This is wired to my DVR on the LAN. I have a DynDns host service moyglassDVR.dyndns.tv. My DVR handles the Dyndns client and updates my public IP, this is working ok. I can contact the DVR on my LAN perfectly. I have set up NAT on the router to forward ports 85 and 9000, both TCP and UTP as the DVR uses 85 as the web port and 9000 as the media port. I have set the router firewall as LOW as this allows NAT to work. Is there another setting in the router I am missing, how does the router know where to route the 85 and 9000 traffic? I have my DVR set at a static IP 192.168.1.201 and have set my DNS on the router to only supply IP addresses up to 200 dynamically. Does Eircom block ports in the low range? Any help would be appreciated.

Please work through this guide and if you need further help edit your question and let us know what you need help with and include all the information listed at the end of tat guide.
The easiest way to find out if your ISP blocks ports is to try your favourite search engine, or forums related to your ISP. You will also want to read the documentation for your router and ISP since there are things you need to know.
