port forwarding for Lorex system.
« on: July 24, 2011, 10:46:39 AM »
I have a Lorex LH110 ECO series.  I'm trying to get the port forwarding working so I can view on my computer and over the internet.

I ran the "auto port forward" wizard that came with the system, entered all the IP addresses for both my router and the Lorex DVR, but when I run the wizard I get the following messsage...

Error 1: "Add" : Overlapped port range 80:80 with port range 80:80 of Lorex 1973

Can anyone advise me on how to fix this error?  By the way, I'm a total novice when it comes to computer networks.  I didn't even know the difference between a router and a modem until yesterday, so I would greatly appreciate any detailed instructions you can share.  Thank you.

From the sound of the error, it is saying there is already a port forwarding rule in the router for port 80.
You can only forward a port to a single machine.

Lets take a look :-)

Go to the port forwarding page in the router. Then take a screen shot and post it here. This way I can take a look at the rules and we can go from there. :wink:

Ha.. sounds good.. and thanks for the reply, but I don't know how to access the "port forwarding page" in order to take a screen shot of it.  Are you talking about the page where the Lorex software made the adjustments and reported the error?

Go to step 3 in the lorex program. You will see a button there that will let you view/remove the ports in the router. This will open the port forwarding page for you.

Once that is open I want you to maximize the window.

Then hit prtscn on your keyboard.
Then open paint and go to edit and paste.
Save the picture as a jpg and post it here :wink:

OK the port forwarding rule for the lorex is already in there. So no need to try and add it again :wink:

Now can you get me a picture of the network settings of the lorex?

I am hitting the gym and will be back in an hour or so, I will reply then. :wink:

Here's what it says under "Network Setup" on the Lorex DVR:

Type   DHCP
Media Port  09000
Web Port 00080
IP address  192.168.000.012
Netmask  255.255.255.000
Gateway  192.168.000.001
DNS1  024.205.192.061
DNS2  000.000.000.000
Auto Port Forwarding   Disable/Enable

It just slays me that I can spend all day working in 120+ degrees attic to run the camera wires, get the DVR, monitor, etc. all set up-- but I cannot figure out this port forwarding.

I also have some other business to attend to this afternoon, so it may be tomorrow before I can get back to this project.  THANK YOU for your help thus far.

Ah the port forwarding rule is pointing to the wrong IP.

This will help explain the reason for port forwarding.
http://www.pcwintech.com/what-port-forwarding-nutshell

So go to the port forwarding page in the router and edit the rule. Change the IP from 192.168.0.100 to 192.168.0.12 (The IP of your DVR) :wink:

Once that is done let me know and I will try to connect to it to see if it is working. :cheesy:

NEW port forwarding for Lorex system.
« Reply #10 on: July 24, 2011, 02:29:53 PM »
Shane,

I am having similar issues to others with the port forwarding/accessing my cameras on my PC and remotely.  I ran the wizard, had a port forwarding double, I will attach a Jpeg of the 3 screens I think you are interested in, not sure that you can see them all if not, I will resend as 3 attachments.  There was an error when the wizard ran, as something else also had port 80 used, and I renamed that one to port 50 to 50, hope it doesn't matter?

Please advise, my IP of the Lorex L 19WD800 is 192.168.2.103.  In reading one of the threads yesterday I realized that perhaps my IE compatibility wasn't working, and that definitely helped and I could see camera screens, but not my cameras.  The DDNS registered successfully from the DVR side.

Thanks for the help.

Geoff

I was going to ask you to start a new thread for yourself. Easier for me to keep track that way. But you don't need to.
I just tried connecting to you by your internet IP in IE and I got your lorex login page. So your working :cheesy:

A lot of routers don't support reverse nat. SO when your home you will connect to the dvr by its local IP. When outside your home you connect to it by its internet IP :wink:

OK, I will try to access this from either my iphone or iPad.  Which Lorex viewer do I choose to access the cameras?  There are like 10 options. 
 
I assume I log in w my lorexddns.net username and password?

Thank you,

Geoff

use lorexddns.net when connecting through a different internet than your home.

When on your home network use the local IP 192.168.2.103

If you need more help go ahead an start a new thread :wink:
