Hi tech gods.Given: 1.
I have an Astak 4 channel DVR sucessfully connected to my LAN (private network 192.168.1.x).2.
My 192.168.1.x private network is connected through a router to my ISP private network (172.20.x.x)3.
My ISP has a NAT server with 1 public IP address (69.x.x.x).My Goal:
to gain the ability to access and manipulate my Astak DVR from a remote host on the world wide web.Question:IS THIS POSSIBLE?
(I've tried to assign a port # to my DVR, and map this port# to my LAN router, but i could not communicate across the world wide web to my server. Am i correct in assuming this is because the transmission still needs to traverse my ISP private network, which needs some sort of additional port mapping within my ISP's gateway?)
(My client says in the past he has been able to access his TIVO from the world wide web. I would think this would be equally impossible. What gives here?)
I appreciate all input here.
Thank you lords of tech!
