click here to find out your public IP address. How have you got it set up at the moment? Do you just want to access stuff on the DVR from another computer somewhere else in the world?

What's the make and model of your DVR? I can look it up then and find out what ports you need to forward on your router and how to access files from it, because some DVRs will work different to others.

OK so there's no make or name printed on the front? I can still try and look it up anyway if it hasn't got a name. What's the make and model of your router? I can look up that on and tell you how to forward ports 80 and 4321 on yours then.

its a belking router its saying i need a public ip address

  rodriguez 00:06 26 Jun 2006

I think you'd do the same from work, but you'd use a different address because you're outside your home network. Instead of you would put in your public IP (which you got from click here) then put :4321 on the end e.g yourpublicip:4321 and then log in as normal. I think you'll still need to forward ports 4321 and 80 on the router so I need the make and model of your router so I can look yours up and tell you how to do it.

Is the model number of the Belkin router any of these?
