Network
This submenu allows you to change the configurations for the NETWORK. This DVR supports a

NOTE: If the DDNS IP Address does not
automatically complete successfully, then the
DVR unit is not communicating with the DNS
Server. You may need to set this value
manually. The current server address is:
• 222.231.024.028 (completes by default if all
options above are set to YES)

1. Connect the DVR to the Router
using the supplied Ethernet Cable.
Power the Observation unit on.

NOTE: The DVR must be connected
to the router prior to powering on the
system. This allows the system to
communicate on your network
2. Set up a web account at http://

NetViewer Manual for setup and
configuration instructions.
3. Install the NetViewer software on

Router Port Forwarding
Router Port Forwarding
You will need to enable port forwarding on your Router to allow for external communications with
your DVR. Enable port forwarding on:
• Port 14337
• Port 14338
Computers, DVR’s, and other devices inside your network can only communicate directly with
each other within the internal network. Computers and systems outside your network cannot
directly communicate with these devices. When a system on the internal network needs to send
or receive information from a system outside the network (i.e.. from the Internet), the information
is sent to the Router.
NETWORK EXAMPLE
Router
External IP
216.13.154.34

192.168.0.1
Computer
Internal IP
192.168.0.2
DVR
Internal IP
192.168.0.3
Internet
Internal Network
When a computer on the Internet needs to send data to your internal network, it sends this data
to the external IP address of the Router. The Router then needs to decide where this data is to
be sent to. This is where setting up Port Forwarding becomes important.
Port Forwarding tells the router which device on the internal network to send the data to. When
you set up port forwarding on your Router, it takes the data from the external IP address:port
number and sends that data to an internal IP address:port number (i.e Router External IP
216.13.154.34:14337 to DVR Internal IP 192.168.0.3:14337).
The instructions found online in the Router Configuration Guide will assist you in the port
forwarding configurations for a selection of different router models.
