I just tried connecting to your internet IP and got the login for your router and not the DVR.

Thats the problem, the router is using port 80. So you will need to change the web or http port in the dvr from 80 to 8080. ANd then update the port forwarding rules and update that port. :wink:

Then you need to port forward that port as well. Every port the DVR uses you need to setup a port forwarding rule for :wink:

i THINK i have not given youe all the information!!, With Google Chrome works good from anywhere; but it presents only one camera at a time, a no option to take picture o save recording.  That's the real problem, so the port forwarding is good; i need to be able to manage stored recording or to take picture in the moment.     Thanks for your help.!!

If the port forwarding is working then the problem is with the dvr and the options.

You will need to give lorex a call to find out why the rest of the tools you need are not working. I made their port forwarding program and help with the network setup for users. But past that they are the best ones to get help from for their products. :wink:
