Ok. My business has a Camera System with a DVR that is connected to a network. I can access it from a Diffrent computer on the business network. But, how can i do that from say, My house?

I host my own website also. Is this possible to route it though there for a connection?

Well you can actually forward the port on the router at your business so that the cameras us port 80 (http port). Then you should be able to access it from any web page using the WAN ip address of your business location. To find out what your WAN IP is, go to www.whatismyip.org and copy that number. When you get home, type that number into your web browser and it should pull up your camera system.

I actually used DynDns.com to access it. But it still only lets me access it from the network the DVR is on..

Could you explain a little more please? Sorry for not understanding.

Sure thing,

Im sure that you use the DynDNS to access it through a remote connection, but if you are at the office, you can connect into the ROUTER through its Web Configuration Page. Just type \\<IPADDRESSOFROUTER> into the internet explorers address bar, and it should get you into the router. Next you need to forware a port (PORT 80), to the IP address of your network DVR server. This way, you can visit www.whatismyip.org and get your WAN Address. Take this address home and type it into your internet explorers address bar, and you should be able to view the camera system.

Well LAN and PUBLIC port are going to be 80. I do not know what you have at IP address 192.168.2.5. IF the 2.5 address is the DVR SYSTEM or SERVER, then all you have to do is go to www.whatismyip.com and write down the number it gives you. Take this number home and type it in your Internet Explorer as http://<NUMBERFROMSITE> This should take you into your camera system. BUT IF you DVR System/Server is at 192.168.2.7, you will have to figure out what 192.168.2.5 goes to and if you access it from a web interface.
