Port Forwarding 5050
I tried to find this on the existing questions... I am using a Droid phone to try to see my DVR video cameras.
I have a static IP and a netgear router.
I checked the Disable Firewall for True Static IP Subnet Only box... I think that this makes gives my netgear router all control...
I have turned on Ping on my Netgear so I can ping it... That seems to work.
I then set my DVR to a static IP, and set up a port forwarding rule for port 5050, 6050, 7050. The DVR says that those parts are to do Command Port 5050, Media Port 6050, and Mobile Port 7050.
I downloaded IP Cam Viewer for my droid... I can turn on Wifi and connect to my internal IP address with port 5050 and see the cameras. Then if I turn off Wifi and try to connect to my external IP address with port 5050 but cannot connect.
Does Comcast block port 5050? Help!?
Re: Port Forwarding 5050
Welcome EvergreenJeff. Comcast does not block ports 5050, 6050 or 7050. We have that the SMC is configured with the correct bootfile and IP. I am including a Netgear Link that contains configuration information for a number of Netgear routers. For additional assistance please send me a PM with your contact info and we can have a Tier 2 agent work directly with you.
