The question has been closed Mar 16 '12 at 03:51 PM by Cry Havok for the following reason:
Better point it to your router (192.168.1.1). External DNS addresses on local devices break local name resolution.
No, your DynDNS hostname must point to your public IP address.
Hello I need help with my CCTV iPhone app. I have eagles eye installed and can't access my CCTV remotely since today. My tech support recently changed my ip add to mac000e53199bf0.ddns.dvrtw.com.tw and it worked fine for awhile but today I get an error message that the ip is no longer accessible.
Can anyone help me? I rather do it myself then rely on tech support which I don't find reliable.
Step by step instruction will be greatly appreciated :D

The general idea is that when you hit your own Router from 'outside', the router has a port forward set up on it that effectively says 192.168.1.1 (your router) please forward all dvr traffic (specified by adding a specific port to the end of the ip, e.g. :8000) to 192.168.1.10 (your DVR).
The reason you use the services of DYNDNS.org is that they monitor your routers dynamic ip (i.e. likely to be constantly changing) and they re-map what is effectively an English name e.g. (mycctv.gotdns.com) to your routers dynamic/changing ip. That way whenever you type in the English URL from outside your home (on the public internet) the browser always resolves the name to your routers IP.
You have to set up the correct port forward on your routers software so that it points to your DVR's IP. Your DVR actually has its own built-in web server and when you do connect ot it you get the homepage on the DVR ! Quite likely your DVR has a login and password to access your cameras. Phew, hope that helps.
