Step 1: Check the port number of live view and playback port for each server as below. 

NVRmini2/Solo/Mainconsole

Default Web Port 80
Default Live View Port 5150
Default Playback Port 5160
Default CMS port 5170

Default Recording Server Port (live view and playback) 5251

You can change the port number to different port if it is necessary.

For Mainconsole

Turn on Live Streaming and Remote Playback as follow:

a. [General Setting]->[Network Service]->[Live Streaming]

     

b. [General Setting]->[Network Service]->[Remote Playback]

For NVRmini2

a. Go to [Network Setup]->[Network Service]->[Web Service]->[Web Server / Management Port: 80]

b. Go to [Network Setup]->[Network Service]->[Live View & Playback Service]->[Live Streaming Server / Port: 5150] and [Playback Server / Port: 5160]


For Titan NVR

a. Go to [Network Setup]->[Network Service]->[Web Service / Web Server / Management Port: 80]

b. Go to [Network Setup]->[Network Service]->[Streaming Server / Port: 5250]

For Crystal

a. Go to [Network Setup]->[Network Service]->[Management Service: 5250]

b. Go to [Network Setup]->[Network Service]->[Recording Service: 5251]

Note: Please fill in the public IP address of your router in the "IP address" column in "Recording Server WAN Settings". For more information, please refer to the Wiki Cannot see videos in Crystal NuClient through WAN.

Step 3: Setup port forwarding for each server. You can setup the same port number for public and private port for the NVR. For example, below pic means user can access the web of NVRmini2 via "http://<public IP address>:8000".

Note:

1. Since each router have the different setting page, we recommend you to double check your router vendor to see if how to setup port forwarding.

2. If you have more than one Crystal Recording server in your network, please setup port forwarding to all of them.

3. If you cannot sure the port forwarding is working or not, please refer to this Wiki How to check the port forwarding is working?
