Home security cameras and port forwarding help

Q: Home security cameras and port forwarding help

I am a total newbie to all this DDNS stuff, but here goes...
My parents just installed some security cameras at their home. They would liek to be able to view the cameras when they are away via the internet. I went over there this weekend and got the DVR unit hooked up to their home network, and assigned it a static IP address using DHCP reservations in the routers settings. They can view their cameras now from their home computers with no problem.
Now, for my question....I read that the only way they will be able to view their cameras when away is if they got a DNS host. I read about having to forward ports and got them signed up with dyndns.com free account.
And now...I am completely at a loss as to what I need to do and what settings I need to have entered where to make this work.
They have a Trendnet TEW-631BRP router. (If anyone cares to look at the users manual on that router, here is the direct link to the site where it can be dowloaded: http://www.trendnet.com/downloads/list_subcategory.asp?SUBTYPE_ID=1102 )
All their computers run XP, and the DVR unit has a software program called "Remote Agent" The DVR unit has settings that can be modified. These settings are:
DHCP on or off, DDNS on or off, DDN Name (which is currently "DVR.NAME") and IP address, gateway, subnet, and the other typical Network settings.
I plugged in the settings for my router (as far as the gateway and DNS servers and stuff are concerned) and assigned it the IP address that I reserved for it.

The router did not have a setting that specifically said "port forwarding" so I am not sure where in my router i need to enter anything.

If anyone can help me out here it would be appreciated!!

Hi all,

I have just changed router from the router provided by O2 to a router i used to use (Netgear DG834GT) i can not seem to get the ports to forward to my server where my personal site is stored.

This all worked when i last used the router but i then updated the firmware and did not reconfiger the ports as i changed routers.

I have followed the steps on http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Netgear/DG834GT/HTTP.htm

but my router doesnt seem to be forwarding me when i go to the address, I have also tried accessing the page via my mobile internet to see it that could get it but no luck.

is there a tick box or something on another page that i might have missed?

I have attached 2 screen shots of my settings.

Thank you in advance

I recently set up a webserver using an old pc that i had lying around and I am thinking of using port forwarding to forward http requests to that computer. I am just wondering how secure this is. I have nothing else on the pc, no personal data so it really is just a server. Thanks in advance.
 

A:Port forwarding and security

The security concern here is how secure is the web site that you're hosting. If you're running just a static web site with no PHP, CGI things, then that is usually pretty secure, since there is no interactive stuff for attackers to ticker with. Also make sure that that web server machine is fully patched, as there can be vulnerablities in the underlying OS. The general fear is that once an attacker sucessfully gets a foothold on the web server machine, he can go on to attack the rest of the network. If you have a router with a true DMZ that provides an isolated subnet, then put your web server machine in that subnet.

Our office has a small LAN behind a NetGear Firewall/Router. I would like to use pcAnywhere to access the network from home. However, I am not yet knowledgeable about any security issues that may arise. Specifically, my understanding is that I must set the NetGear to do port forwarding of the two ports used by pcAnywhere (to forward pcAnywhere traffic to the machine on the network that is acting as the pcAnywhere host). My question is: What, if any, security vulnerabilities are brought on by this type of port forwarding? Is the Firewall still completely protecting our LAN with port forwarding on? My limited understanding makes me worry that the ports that are forwarded will be visible externally and represent a potential vulnerability. I would appreciate greatly a brief summary of these issues!!!
 

A:Port forwarding and security

I haven't used PC Anywhere for a while, but there should be a way to initiate the connection from the server side (the one behind the firewall).

If you open ports on the NetGear firewall, you'll need to direct it to the pc where PC Anywhere is installed, and then, yes, you have a possible security hole, if that listener turns out to have issues.

I have a situation where there is a network of POS terminals (presuming Windows based) that are used to process credit cards. They are tied into a wired router (Netgear Firewall) and recently I installed his old DVR equipment. I tied his DVR into his router and opened the necessary port (+1024) to allow incoming traffic to view the DVR remotely. My question is this. Can port forwarding to one device (in this case, embedded DVR) allow a hacker to jump from one machine to another to attack the more important one? I hope I made that clear. I would assume no (especially in my situation being that the DVR is embedded, not PC based)...but I was just curious. Thanks in advance!

Hey Guys,

I have been messing around with Apache from (XAMPP) on my Windows computer. I know that it is not secure, but I am just testing it for right now (for fun).

I am behind a Linksys WRT54g router. I can easily access the apache server from internally (locally), and in order for me to be able to access it externally (external IP in address bar), I have to port forward in my router.

So, I port forwarded port 80 and everything worked fine. I just had a question about this.

Since most internet (HTTP) traffic is served through 80, and I just port forwarded 80 to one computer, how do the other computers on my network still have access to the net. Don't get me wrong, it's awesome that this works, but I would just like to know how. Theoretically, wouldn't all the traffic that is coming through 80 be routed to that one computer?

Can someone explain this to me?

Also, when people use Apache to host sites, do they usually keep the apache ServerName (in httpd.conf) at localhost, or do they change it to a different IP? I would imagine they would keep it at localhost, so what would be the reason for changing that to a different IP?

Thanks!

Hi,

I have been using an DSL Siemens speedstream 6520 router at home. I usually carry out some R&D by placing servers behind the router. I access the services on each of the servers from the ouside using port forwarding and it has been working fine for http, ftp, RDP, any user defined ports etc but in the case of port 25 SMTP its not working at all. I have checked the port on the local lan and I am able to telnet to that server but from the outside only on this port 25 I am not able to telnet. But If i were to change the SMTP port number from 25 to any other port like 24 or 26, I am able to telnet from the outide. Is there any way i can make SMTP port 25 to work and access the same from the outside.

Regards
Rajesh
 

A:SpeedStream 6520 DSL Router - Port forwarding for port 25

Is it possible that port 25 has been blocked by your ISP? This is a pretty common thing for ISP's to do as a SPAM prevention measure.

As you can see, there are quite a few ISP's blocking port 25 on this list.

I have tearing hair out for days on this.

I have 2 Axis 1031-W latest IP cameras.
I have set them up with their own IP's in my right submask etc.
All set up fine via Lan and wireless both send wireless fine

Router is TP-LINK WR641G

After reading zillions of port forwarding info on IP cameras I understand it is best to forward port 80 to a high new port number so I am trying to forward to port 8000 and 9000.

But no where in the virtual server set up in the router does it let me set up what port to send to. I enter 80 as "Service Port" and the IP address of a camera and use TCP or ALL protocol. But it will not let me enter another listing for service port 80 to the IP of Camera 2 since it says is already in use or something. It seemed to assign it to port 81 instead but I have no idea if HTTP will be "heard" on that port to transfer to the 2nd Camera.

If I log in to my static public IP address - I get the log in to Camera 1, which I assume is because of the port 80 forward to it. I had a friend try it to be sure it worked outside the network and it does.

But... I'd like to set up each camera separately thus wanting to assign it different port numbers. But I see nowhere to do this in the router.

I also tried using 8000 as the "service port" and TCP/HTTP thinking maybe it knows to pick up from port 80 and that will transfer to port 8000. But trying to log in via my IP:8000 doesn't work.

I am obviously confused...and frustrated ... Read more

Can anyone help me with the camera server to static ip thing?

I can see the camera server on LAN fine, and i can see the web fine, but i cant see the camera server from a remote location on the web.

i have a static ip but entering that information into the server locks me out and i have to re-enter the default ip and port 80 settings to be able to talk to it again.

I'm running the AP software of both server and isp provided ST780 wireless router from my xp laptop, and i can individually talk to both via LAN.

There is no manufacturer advice other than open ports 5000 - 5002, tried that and it did nothing.

To me this sreams "ROUTER!!!!" and there are some things that are messing with my head! Firstly the ST780 KNOWS... that it has somethin plugged up its tail pipe but cant recognise it!!! In the software it shows a physical address and an ip address but they dont match and therefore it wont list the server as a device. Its either unknown or there is no entry.

So.... my questions to you fine people are ..... do i persevere with port forwarding? Does the Static ip info have to be entered into the server? or is it enough to forward from the static to the default lan ip and port 80 settings? How does this help the ST780 to recognise the server or should i be buying a router that cares!!!

Or am i 1 octet short of a full ip and missing the point completely????

I am using a IFS 24-port Gigabit Stackable Managed PoE Switch IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) 1 U and have a power question. I am using it to run IP security cameras on a job and don't have the switch on-line yet. The cameras are going in and we are unable to power them/ aim and focus without it. Is it possible to make an RJ 45 "adapter" to temporarily power them up at the camera? My thoughts are to find the pins that provide power from the switch, make an RJ plug that only has 2 wires in it and connect them to a separate portable power supply, then plug directly into the camera for setup. Then land the switch when the rack is ready.

Q: 568B is what they will be wired for, which pins are for power ( P+ and P- )

Q: What is the correct / standard voltage from the PoE port ?- or does this depend on the camera?- it shouldn't, the cameras are not field selectable- they are IEEE 802.3af.

Q: Can this be done? I only need power for now and I have a separate video out on the cameras for a test monitor.

Thanks (Y)

A:Security Cameras & External Hard Drive

Hi there
seems to me that you've got two problems here.

1) The recording camera software -- IMO this should be writing to disk every so often rather than waiting to the end of the recording -- I don't know the software but since its security related it must be capable of creating decent timestamps and write to a log file every so often. You should perhaps depending on the software even be able to have the logs re use themselves say after 5 logs have been created --overwrite log 1 again etc.

Without knowing the setup / settings of this program its impossible to say why data isn't being written to the disk --maybe it IS but to a file on drive C and you have to copy the data manually. I should definitely look at this.


2) Power / sleep / hibernate settings on the computer --ensure that disks are turned off --never, computer isn't hibernated / screen saved etc.

You CAN have the screen to switch off after so many minutes --that won't be a problem.

Another silly problem believe it or not is that the hard disc can be filled so it will stop -- but the directory entry is not written so the disk still appears empty or at least your footage won't be there.

Video footage can consume INORDINATE amounts of data if the compression etc isn't set decently.

A recent study by security firm Protection1 discovered over 6,000 no-password, open-access security cameras spread across the US.

According to the company's findings, many of these cameras are located in public places, at the headquarters of private enterprises, and even in the homes of many Americans.

Protection1 noted that the highest concentration of unprotected cameras is around big urban centers, such as the San Francisco Bay area, the Los Angeles area, Seattle, Chicago, the Florida cities, and all over the Atlantic coast, from Washington DC to Boston.

A camera without a password is a peeping hole for crooks
These towns are the centers of many security hot spots, like airports, military bases, and hospitals, so the large number of unprotected cameras should ring alarm bells with the people in charge of those systems.

Protection1 also ranked the number of unprotected cameras per 100,000 residents and came up with a top ten cities with the largest density of open-access cameras.

Leading the pack is the small town of Walnut Creek, California, with 89.69 open-access cameras per 100,000 citizens. The other towns in this top ten list were also small-to-medium cities, and Protection1 believes that the lack of critical security needs in these smaller towns has allowed authorities to relax when it comes to the e-security of these systems.

Hello!

I am an IT Administrator for a local business, and we recently had a large storm. We were required to replace all existing networking gear. Our security camera system is now unable to be viewed via app. I have tried so many things that it is not even funny at this point - it is ridiculous.

I have tried opening the ports on the Arris, but a port scan reveals they are in fact closed. I don't see a place to open ports on the Netgear - does this mean that we should purchase a new router, other than the Netgear? (Personally, I prefer something other than it but..)

Network/Camera setup:

NETWORK:

- Arris router (ISP provided w/ coax going into it)

- Netgear smart (Business bought , Arris connects to this which this then projects a 2.4ghz and a 5ghz wireless network, along with a 2.4ghz guest wireless connection.

CAMERA:

- One "Platnium" NVR - Configured network correctly

Well if you are using ethernet connection as a path for the portforwarding then it would not work once you disconnect because the IP address will not be there.

Unless I am missing something? It does sound like a routing issue.

I have a Netgear RP614. Is there any way to port foward the same ports for different IP adresses? I am trying to connect two computers to an online game that requires ports 2300-2399 to be opened. I can get one to work great but the router will not let me use another IP adress.
 

A:Port Forwarding

You can't forward the same port to different ip's. The only thing I can suggest is forward the ports for one ip and place the second in the DMZ.

I'm trying to open the port: 43594. I'm using this guide, http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Actiontec/MI-424-WR/default.htm and when I use it, I get everything right until I reach the "Add Server Ports" It doesn't show that after I click "Add" or "New". Anybody know how to get to it?

Hello, I have been having this incessant problem that I cannot port forward.

I have an Arris CM820a modem that is connected to a Nexxt Solutions arno1154u2 router which are both in my laundry room (Separated from the rest of my house), which then sends out wan cables throughout my entire house through the walls, such as my study, my room etc. I am trying to port forward some ports in the router in my room, which is a cisco Linkseys E900 router. I correctly do all the port forwards, trust me, I triple check every time. I have been digging for a solution, and found that I might be behind a double NAT, or a double firewall. If so, I would like to know how to solve this. I have read that I need to put both my modem and the router directly connected to the modem in bridge mode, but I do not know how to do that for the models that I have

Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks.
 

A:Need help port forwarding

The Nexxt Nebula 150 (P/N arno1154u2) router is the first NAT layer in your setup. It would need to port forward to your Linksys router, which would then need to port forward to your computer.

Hi ther,

I have a dlink DI-524 router. I have just made a counter-strike source server and apparently i need to port forward my router so it will let friends and others join the server. I have followed different tutorials and guides to try and solve this problem. But when loading my server up again the ip-address hasn't changed and the server is still only running on my network. Also i have enabled DMZ but that also did not do anything to my server.

I really have no idea what to do to solve this problem so any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers Smurf!

Hi, and thanks for any help that you can provide.

I have a d-link dir-515r wireless router. It has a rather unconventional screen for port forwarding and I can't figure it out. I've googled for help and fiddled around with the settings, but I just can't seem to get the port to be open. Whenever I check at yougetsignal.com it is set to closed.

Could you help me?

Here are the screenies:

I am trying to forward the ports to host on wc3 (ports 6112-6114), and the setup of my network is making it difficult since none of the guides are intricate enough for this setup. I have a modem (actiontech something or other from qwest 192.168.0.1) connected to my dlink wbr1310 (192.168.10.1) connected to my computer (192.168.10.145) and several others via wireless. I tried forwarding the ports from the modem to the router to my computer, but that didn't really work. Anyone have an idea of something else i could try?
Thanks!

I'm trying to setup rinetd to forward xxx.xx.xxx.xxx port 25 to 127.0.0.1 port 1025
My rinetd.conf file looks like this:
xxx.xx.xxx.xxx 25 127.0.0.1 1025

I'm trying to make an smtp server that opens each email and then runs the email as a shell script then sends the results back to the persons email address
but I want to avoid running the scripts as root
so therefore I want to run the smtp server run as a non-root user
when I run the server as root, it works fine, but I don't want everyone who sends an email to have root access
but non root users can't listen on ports below 1024
and I need it to listen on port 25
so I'm trying to use rinetd to forward port 25 to 1025
also, I'm running sendmail listening on port 25 but only on localhost
so I need to configure rinetd to only listen in on the public ip

Usually you do this on your router. The exact method would depend on the router itself.

Hello all, Not sure if this is the right place but here goes

Im running ubuntu and i wanna host a mud (multi user dungeon, a text based online game for anyone that doesnt know). Anyways i have the game up and running on my localmachine on port 4000. I can telnet to localhost.com 4000 and it runs perfectly. So now im attempting to set up port forwarding so i can have my friends log in, however i've never done it before and cant seem to get it to work!.

heres what im trying. My static internal ip is 192.168.254.1, my external ip is 173.183.79.195. My router is a gigaset se567. (my game runs on localhost 4000)

i went to this website http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Siemens/Gigaset-SE567/Echolink.htm

it tells you how to set up port forwarding for my router

so i selected port forwarding for tcp, and ports being 4000. ip address being 192.168.254.1

and nothing.....i've tried a few things, i just cant seem to get it to work, any help will be greatly appreciated!
 

A:Port forwarding!

isn't your ip meant to be 192.168.1.254? .1 would be your router.

Anyways, make sure that your friends also do portforwarding. Or go into your firewall and turn it off to see if that helps.

I'm trying to port forward for Max Payne 3. I followed the instructions and it all looks correct to me, but when I check if the port is open via http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/ it still says my ports are closed. It shows my external IP address as: 99.255.128.50.

Ports needed to open for max Payne 3: http://support.rockstargames.com/entries/21509312-ports-to-open-in-the-pc-version-of-max-payne-3

My Ipv4 address: 192.168.0.12
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1

As it says on the support page, check your firewall software isn't blocking those ports even though you've configured them properly in your router firewall setup.
