Went in and setup port forwarding but its failing to work.
Considering network discovery from the windows pc isn't working either i say iam overly tired at 4am and missing something.
Also have pfblockerng installed which may be a factor but brain out to lunch at this early hour
What silly thing am i missing?
If that is what you want to do (Hint: A VPN would be better) that looks like it should work.
If it's not working, check (really check) everything here:
Pay especially close attention to the list of Common Problems.
@Derelict hinted at it but I'll reinforce what he said and state it directly:
Unless you want someone on shodan watching your cameras for you, setup and use a VPN to reach your DVR and do not expose it directly to the Internet.
The security on those types of embedded systems is notoriously awful. The networking stacks are weak, and the UI is probably full of holes.
