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, 3388, 4550, 5511, 5550, 5552, 6550, and 8866

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

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.
