D-Link Remote Access Guide for iMaxCamPro DVR’s

Port Forwarding using a D-Link router

Open a web browser like Internet Explorer or Firefox. Enter the internal IP address of your router in the address bar of your browser. If you do not know your routers internal IP address please read our How To Find Your Routers IP Address guide.

In the picture above the address bar has http://www.google.com in it. Just replace all of that with the internal IP address of your router. By default the IP address should be set to 192.168.1.1.

.

You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now. By default the username is Admin, and the password is blank. Click the Log In button to log in to your router. Please visit our Default Router Passwords page if the username and password shown above did not work for you.

Click the Advanced button near the top of the page.

 

Click the Port Forwarding button near the left of the page.

 

In this space we will enter the following information:

Name: DVR

TCP: 80

IP Address: Your DVR’s IP Address.

iMaxCamPro DVR requires you to forward the following ports: 80, 37777, 37778. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the Port Forwarding Rules menu.

When you’re finished, click Save Settings near the top of the screen to save your changes.

And that’s it! You’re done!

To make sure that your ports are open and you will be able to connect remotely to your DVR, you can check if your ports are open visiting the following website: http://www.canyouseeme.org/ 

Check the ports 80, 37777 and 37778.

If you get the success message, you are all set. If not please follow the steps above to be able to open your port

Please keep in mind that your Internet Service Provider (ISP) might block some for the ports on your router.

Most residential ISP’s block ports to combat viruses and spam. The most commonly blocked ports are port 80 and port 25.

Port 80 is the default port for http traffic. With blocked port 80 you will need to run your web server on a non-standard port.

If your ISP blocks your port 80 please change the networks settings on your DVR for another port.
