I have Bayantel plan 1,299 with dynamic IP, hindi rin po ako makapag port forward, they said I need to pay additional P700+ per month para sa static IP.
Here\'s my question, possible ba na view remotely if i dedicate ko nlang ang internet ko sa DVR, meaning wala na iba mkaka connect kundi DVR ko? Need pa rin ba ,ag portforward sa ganitong setup?
@daxjeremy, 2 issues you've raised regarding remote viewing:
1. Dynamic IP -- you can use a service like No-ip.com free DNS para makagamit ka ng daxjeremy.ddns.net(FQDN). When you sign up with NO-ip.com, The Free DNS will be associated with your current IP. DNS i.e 22.214.171.124 = daxjeremy.ddns.net kaya lang depende sa provider BayanTel, Smart, PLDT etc they may change their leased IP address at any given time -- maybe daily, weekly change, sometimes rebooting your modem would release and renew your IP. That's where you need a DNS updater client, No-ip.com has it too. It's a small application that you have to install to your PC para kung meron changes sa IP address "DNS Update Client continually checks for IP address changes in the background and automatically updates the DNS at No-IP whenever it changes". Some router or flashed router like DDWRT or tomato etc., has a built in updater so you don't really have to install on any network device. And yes I agree to solve WAN IP changes issues, then get a Static IP to avoid hassles.
2. Port forwarding -- you can get away with port forwarding and dedicate your IP (WAN IP) straight to your DVR, no more router in between(I am not sure if your ISP device is a modem and router in one). Kaya lang I am not sure with your IP camera or DVR, if it just uses default port 80 for viewing. If not then medyo tricky yun since you have to create a socket i.e daxjeremy.ddns.net:7070 to view your camera remotely. Kung kailangan ng multiple devices then you have to configure the routers port forwarding on your LAN IP.
Pasensya na kung hindi ako masyadong precise yung sagot ko since medyo broad yung scope but kung meron kang specific issue. Hope this helps and let me know so I can try to assist. Salamat.
