Connecting to my CCTV outside of my home netw

Specs: Windows XP
Hi I have a Kguard H264 CCTV system installed that is connected to my BTHome HUb 2 via ethernet cable.

The CCTV system is registered on the home hub and has a direct ip address of 192.168.1.100 and is configured to forward port 80 which is correct.

Problem is how do i now connect to the CCTV system outside of my home network i.e. using my work computer?

This is driving me mad, any help would be much appreciated

Craig

should be covered in the systems documentation.

normally you could access via wanipaddress:80

know how to get your wan ip? go to ipchicken.com

That hasnt really helped. I can log onto my standalone DVR through my web browser using my in house internet and the settings on both tie up. But I just get a timed out message when using the same ip address to connect say from my phone or a friends pc

"is configured to forward port 80 which is correct"

have you tested your port fowarding?
you say hasn't helped but that means nothing since you don't say how you tried remotely to access the dvr.

my dvr system came with software called cms lite that allows me to put in a ip address [from work its my wan ip], password and port number.

Load your routers configuration page. Didnt list your router, so I dont know what that is, but usually its your gateway. Find that by going into command prompt and typing Ipconfig. the gateway is listed there. Load that in a web browser. next find port forwarding tab. set a rule to forward port 80 to the ip of your dvr that you listed. save changes and restart router. go to portforward.com and get their tool to verify the port is opened. to access from remote go to whatismyip.com and take that number add the port your forwarded using :portnumber here, so it would look like myipaddressfromwhatismyipaddress:myportiforwarded. if you use port 80 no need to include the :.

if you include more information it makes it easier to respond.
