You did it. No way do I get this done on my own. In fact, I am now over 48 hours with no response from a technical assistance email I sent to Belkin as well as the manufacturer of this dvr unit. For those who may look at this link, the dvr security system is sold through Harbor Freight Tools. Manufacturers instruction on port forwarding pretty much tells you to find someone who knows what they are doing and have them set it up.
Had you not also told me to access the site using Internet Explorer I would have run into a road block. I use Chrome as my browser and cannot get into the dvr with that browser.
Again, thank you very much for your patience and efforts is assisting me with this issue. You have made an old man very happy, not to mention allowing me to save face with my dear wife.
If you are near San Antonio TX, let me treat you to a good dinner.
