I am trying to set up the router for port forwarding so I can remotely view my cctv cameras on my mobile phone.
I have entered my dyndns details in the advanced/DDNS page on the router - what else should I be doing as I am not familiar with this router and broadband down the phone line having moved over from cable after many years !!
Any help or step by step info would be appreciated.
And you may have to change the port number used by the cameras, many default to port 80, but often if you forward this port and then try and connect remotely, all you will see is the routers internal config pages as these normally use port 80 by default.
SO I got my NEW Huawei HG523a,very fast, it's faster than my Netgear DGN2000, which was my old modem, and Ive found it has increased my speeds, my old modem was starting to overheat, or the connection was being dropped after prolonged use, I found this was a common problem with the DGN2000.
My network has 2 subnets, one 192.168.2.0/27 for guest access, and redundancy(my main/Work PC is plugged in to both) in case the other goes wrong and one for my other devices, this other network is 192.168.1.0/24 and has my server, with my 3TB of films (don't need one of them fancy youview boxes) I also use my server for updating my computer using WSUS and I use it as a web server + DNS Name Server (i'm trying to set up a Dynamic DNS solution much like that of DYNDNS buy on a much smaller scale- as CISCO would say, over a small geograpgic area-, and f̶r̶e̶e̶ /cheap) , not just is this second network more secure, it also has 2 WIFI access points(DHCP Netgear WNR3500L and Belkin F5D8235), and is built on Gigabit speeds, recently invested in CAT6 all around my house.
I have port forwarded, a few ports on my NEW Huawei HG523a,
They are pointing to my other router
(The other router is also already set up with port forwarding and was working fine before my new router)
The problem occurs at the point when I go to load my site, I found my IP using Google
And I tried to load this site using this IP
But this just loads the router login page, this is not just for http (port 80) this is also for all the other ports I have forwarded, DNS, RDC etc.
I have tried setting the firewall to different settings
Such as Disabled, low, high, talk talk, custom.
I then read that one reason it might not be working was because of the CWMP so I changed it to this
right yes i have tested it, and it seems to be working from out side my LAN, so i guess that's working fine, but i use BIND on my web server to host multiple websites, this now means i can not view them which is pretty annoying, of course i can still view the pages from with in the file system, but i use SSI PHP & ASP so don't display locally.
when i upgrade to fiber will i get a new router/will the new router support NAT loop-back?
