Here are the instructions:
Funniest thing I've read in ages...! 8rfl@8rfl@8rfl@ (tell me it's not real....?).:-0)
I've got a Tenvis webcam that also can't get to work.
My instruction amounted to about 3 small pages. :bang:
so what IP address has it been assigned on your local LAN? (I'm presuming you have done the basic network setup in Para 9 on page 6)
Can you browse to that IP address in a web browser? (If needs be log onto your router and check the DHCP allocation to see what IP address has been assigned)
NB the software on th CD will only let you access it locally as an alternatove to connecting via a web browser
actually looking at those instructions again it's not 100% clear if it has a DHCP client.
Presuming it hasn't you have configured it in the same range of IPs as your existing network haven't you ?
Yes, it is currently set to
192 168 1 18
255 255 255 0
192 168 1 1
8 8 8 8
202 101 172 35
I can access the unit from any where on my LAN
So all you need to do is log into your router, find the port forwarding section and forward Port 80 on the WAN interface to the LAN IP of your DVR so that you can access it from anywhere on the interwebs
BTW why are you using a dodgy Chinese IP range for your secondary DNS ? Google for the primary makes sense
That was just the default
Off to push some zeds now but will get back on it tomorrow mate..
Appreciate the help
What he said.
Get port 80 forwarded to the DVR setup, putting the DVR on a static IP makes most sense for that.
Then get some Dynamic DNS client running (possibly in your modem) so you can use a name to call home, and it will auto update in case your modem IP changes.
Once that works some 'tricks' to make it all a bit safer.
Port 80 is a very easy target, moving it around will add a small amount of protection.
If your modem will let you get it to forward some strange port number through to port 80, so you would attach to jaws.dvr.houe:6548 and your modem will forward that onto 192.168.1.18:80
You may be able to tell the DVR it's webserver is on a different port which will have the same overall effect.
Last thing, if you are using their software instead of a web browser, it may be a different port that needs to be forwarded. 34598 is shown in part of the instructions.
easy done it load just have to tag a port to the DVR
the big problem and its a bit more to set up most home ISP do not have fixed IP and it keeps changing
but business ip's you can pay and have it fixed
so just google my ip
sso your ip : the port you have tag it to the the web page will ask for your log in job done till the ip changes......lol
