8080 port foward probelm
« on: April 22, 2011, 12:10:58 AM »
i would like to say a big thanks to the guys for helping me out the day.  :cheesy:


we changed my hhtp port to 8080 as 80 was being blocked.  ( for my dvr)

it looks like the dvr software and my blackberry torch software wont run with the ip adddress.

they is no way to change the http port. so i am guessing need to put back to default 80?

any ideas on what to do here? ( it was a netgear dgn1000 router) i have AVG free and windows firewall.

Keep in mind there are 2 ways you will connect to the dvr.

When on the same local network as the DVG you will use the dvr's local IP, and for port 8080
Example: http://192.168.1.250:8080
When out side the network you will use the internet IP (Or dynamic dns account)
Example: http://99.99.99.99:8080

Notice the :8080
That tells the connection what port to use. The default is 80. So without :8080 the connection will try port 80 by default. :wink:

When using a system you have to use IE.
If trying from your black berry you need to see if the dvr company has an app for it :wink:

If connecting with your same wifi as the cameras are on you need to use the local ip :wink:

I don't know anything about the black berry app your suing.

If your ISP is blocking port 80 then I don't think there is a way to over come that. We can try chaning it back to port 80 in the DVR and then change the port forwarding rules and change the port 8080 to 80.

If I remember I don't think port 80 is being blocked. So lets change it back :wink:

hi shane.

yes you are right about port 80 i have entered port 80 on to the simple port tester tool and it opens ( only on that port and not the others 37777 37778)

i have also changed my ip in my pc to static as it keeps changing. i followed a guide on how to do it. ( let me if this is wrong)

what do i do next?  :cheesy:

The simple port tester will not work for this. That is only when testing your own computer.

I just tried and I can connect to you fine on port 80 :wink:

700 miles! you must have a mutsang or something to do that many miles!


i am going to my brothers today armed with a lap top with the dvr software to see if it works.

my ip address seems to be staying the same after changing it to static ( seemed to easy as you can change it your self when companies charge for this> why would i need dynds to? if i can change it my self? )

the phone i am about to throw out of the window.  :tongue: i have a i pod touch witch i can download a app but it cost about $15! can i jail break this thing? its my girl friends unit.  :wink: :tongue:
