How do I set up Port Forwarding on my HDIP Recorder?

The IP address of your recorder is identifiable within your network. In order to be able to access your recorder from a remote location through the internet, you will need to configure your router to forward the information from the internet to your recorder. The default port for your recorder is 80. In order to forward information to this port, follow these instructions.
