Connect to IP inside my network?

So it goes from the static IP to the cable modem to my router.

 

How to I connect to the Security camera system inside my local network from outside using the static IP.  Do I use port forward for this or dmz?  and how do I configure it on the cable modem?

 

Tried calling tech support today but could not reach a person. Just kept repeating that they are working on an outage in my area.  I haven't had any internet problems today.

I have yet to figure out how to get Static NAT 1 to 1 to work on my comcast business gateway. Internet searches have failed to get a solution and I have ye to get it solved from here. Hopefully between yours or my thread a solution arises. I have been looking at setting my modem to bridge mode and buying a capable router.

Hello cgchris99 and welcome,

 

It is very easy to configure your modem and open Static IP ports to access your DVR remotely. If you have a SMC or Netgear Comcast Gateway (CG), then simply login to the router using 10.1.10.1 as the directly ethernet connected browser address, then use username=cusadmin/password=highspeed. Then click on Firewall (FW), then Port Forwarding Tab: within this area you will see a link Static IP Port Forwarding Managment (SIPFM) and click this and now you wil be in the static IP device port forward area. FYI-If you have any issues with activating the Add button, just go back to the  FW and uncheck the check mark within the Disable State IP Firewall and this will enable the Add button in theSIPFM area. When you can click on the activated Add New button, then just type this to open Port 1000 on static IP device WWW.XXX.YYY.ZZZ :  Port1000 1000:1000 1000:1000 both WWW.XXX.YYY.ZZZ, click save or apply to make this stick and whala = Port 1000 is now open on Static IP device WWW.XXX.YYY.ZZZ.  If you have a DPC39XX CG, after you login, just click on Advanced, then click on Port Management and pretty much the same above Port Forwarding sequence can be used.

 

Hope this helps you out and Happy Holidays...

So with the DVR behind my router, do I Port forward to my router IP which is 10.1.10.10? My DVR is a 192.x.x.x

My gateway must be slightly different because under Firewall I see "port configuration"

 

Thanks for any additional advice.

No, sorry, I thought your DVR was connected to a static IP. So, if it is not, then make sure your LAN DHCP Server IP range is set to 10.1.10.10 to 10.1.10.199 and if it is, then set your DVR static address to 10.1.10.5, then make sure your DVR is directly connected to any Lan Port on the back of the CG, then make sure your are NOT in True Bridge Mode, so you CG routing is enabled. You can then click on Fire Wall, then in the generic Port Forwarding area just click on add port and to open Port 1000 on your 10.1.10.5 address use something like : Port1000 1000 1000  1000 1000 both 10.1.10.5.

 

This will get your job done on a definitive basis.
