Auto Port Forwarding Help.
« on: July 28, 2011, 09:00:27 AM »
Hello, I'm having trouble with the program. I get passed everything when I update the router but it will not let me save. It gives me this error message: ERROR:
Pinhole element Lorex3462 has conflict with internal
Web-TCP service 80,
Either change pinhole port or redirect Web Port.
    Validation did not pass!

I have an Moterola Netopia 3000 but I'm using the netopia 3347nwg-006 it seemed to work. Thanks!

You can only forward a port to 1 device at a time. That error is telling you that port 80 is already being used in another rule.

Some ISP's block port 80. So lets do this instead.
Log into your DVR and go to the network setup. Change the port it is using from 80 to 8080 and then save it.
Then make a port forwarding rule to port 8080 that points to the IP of the DVR.

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

Also when you change it to 8080 you will log into it like this.

For an example lets say the DVR IP is 192.168.1.150

Normally you could get to the DVR in IE with http://192.168.1.150
Now it will be like this
http://192.168.1.150:8080 :wink:

You can use the lorex program. At step 2, at the bottom where it says 80 for the dvr port change it to 8080 as well :wink:

What is the IP of the DVR? I thought you said it was 192.168.1.254?

Ok I see, your using 192.168.1.254 for the router. I thought you meant that was the dvr IP.

Try connecting to the dvr without the :8080

Did you change the port in the dvr or only the router?

Also is the new port forwarding rule point to 192.168.1.9?

I did nothing to the dvr but even when I connect without the 8080 its just a blank screen with a X at the top right. I used the program and changed it to 8080. I'm not sure what its pointing to.

OK your half way there. We still need to change the port in the DVR itself.

Looks like the dvr might have a new local IP? Do you have a monitor hooked up the DVR?

DVR is the recording unit that the cameras hook into. It is also the place we setup the network and options :wink:

Ok I think the IP of it changed, now we need to find out what it changed to so you can get logged back into it.

Thats why I ask if it had a screen hooked to it, so you can access the settings that way. :-)
