    Hi all,

    Ive got a headache trying to port forward a DVR in the BT 2700HGV router,Theres the DVR connected to it and a laptop.

    In the firewall settings,it asks what applications you want to port forward,i dont want to port forward an application and i just want the DVR so it can be accessed over internet.

    I've tried DMZ to noavail

    BT tech department wanted 25quid before they would help so thats a no no!!,and the guy said i needed a static IP,which ive now got,but that didnt help either.

    Thanks to anyone who respondes :)

    If the DVR is a standalone and not computer based, I'm sorry, I can not help.

    Is the DVR a Windows XP based machine? If so, put a strong password on your windows account and enable Remote Desktop. Then port forward port 3389 in the router.

    If it is not XP/Vista/2003 based one could find VNC to install and run on the computer. Then one could forward the VNC ports through the firewall to the DVR. Again, put a strong password on the VNC.
