I have a Job setting up a DVR, hooking cameras up, and getting it on the clients iphone to view their restaurant remotely. i have been working on it the last 2 days after my day job.
I have attached a schematic of the network structure network_DVR_setup.png 2.07MB 1 downloads
Service Provider: ATT U-Verse DSL
Switch: Netgear GS116v2 (UnManaged - meaning it should connect easily)
DVR: Lorex ECO BlackBox LH010 ----- PORTS for DVR - HTTP:80 CLIENT:9000 MOBILE:1025
POS: a sales system and table system that CAN'T SCREW UP
STATIC IP: I believe this is for the POS System, (the only port i saw was open was a MYSQL port.)
- Hook up Surveillance DVR to the Network (COMPLETE)
- Get camera's hooked up (COMPLETE)
- Hook DVR to a specific Monitor to Watch the cameras on (COMPLETE)
- Have it where he can access cameras from his iphone REMOTLY. (STRUGGLING)
My Skill Level:
I have worked with computers and technology and i am trying to learn more.
I have never Port Forwarded
Never messed with a Switch
Never Come in on a already Built Network and Figure out how its working.
The progress point i am at:
- I am stuck because when i log into the Modem, there is 3 services running that rules have been created for. I am a bit apprehensive to mess with things and don't want to screw up the services running.
- So i go to create a new rule on the modem for the DVR, i don't know which IP to use.
- the DVR's IP? the Static IP or should i be using the Static IP and then MAC address.of DVR?
My options as i see them. - the 3 options are different from each other (I think LOL)
1. Use Lorex Auto-PortFoward tool wizard, set up an account on Lorex website for a DDNS. Then use Lorex IOS App to connect to the DVR Remotely.
- I don't want to do this, because i know that this could cause issues with the resturants POS
2. Call ATT. and have a Static IP setup just for the DVR.
- Set up a new rule on the modem
- Then Port forward throught the firewall on the NVG510 Modem.
- download a 3rd party viewing app or still use Lorex Remote app to view cameras on iphone remotely.
3. Use the Static Ip that is already there, and then open a different ports for the DVR, then what are being used for the rest of the system.
- I was reading and somewhere it said that 2 machines cant have the same IP address or it won't work.
I you need anything else to understand the situation please let me know and i will get it ASAP.
So i am a little despite in my situation, its of my own making but if you don't take chances where will you get in life. I would appreciate any help.
