I have a customer that has a real nice house....

They have 2 Digital Video Recorders (DVR's)and an Access Control System (ACS)

The DVR and ACS have static IP's on the internal 192.168.1. scheme.
ACS 192.168.1.100
DVR1 192.168.1.101
DVR2 192.168.1.102

All are accessable through a web browser (IE) when connected to the local network.

From a remote location, I can use Https://WANaddress:8080 to get to and administer the router (Linksys WRT54GL)

Can I set up port forwarding to take me to the login pages of the 3 devices??
I went to Application and Gaming... made an entry

ACS port 8081 to 8081 = 192.168.1.100 enable....
But I think because I can't tell it to goto port 80 or 192.168.1.100 this won't work...

Because the lan addresses are private they can not be routed accross the internet. You will need to create a vpn. This will allow your remote computer to act like it is on the local network.

The issue was, the access control tech didn't tell me when he in on the local LAN
he opens a browser and puts HTTPS://10.10.10.101 in the address bar...
As soon as I hears the "S", I forwarded port 443 to 10.10.10.101 and it worked 1st try...

The other DVR was not a secured login and I simply forwarded port 8081 to 10.10.10.100
and all was good there.

Keep im mind by doing so those ports are now open full time to anyone who ports searches on your routers public ip address. You are wide open to the hackers of the world.
