Port forwarding is the process that a router or firewall uses to sort the right kind of network data to the right port. Computers and routers use ports as a way to organise network data. Different types of data, such as web sites, file downloads, and online games, are each assigned a port number. The router or firewall uses forwarding to send the correct data to the correct place.
A firewall protects a computer by blocking unauthorized information, but if a firewall blocks all incoming and outgoing data, the computer would be unable to access the Internet. When a computer user wants some data to go through the firewall and to send it to a specific location, then port forwarding can be set up. This gives the firewall instructions about which types of data are allowed and how they should be directed.
Below is a diagram of the port forwarding process:
Below is an example of the port forwarding setup (please note that different brands of routers may have different setup pages).

We recommend you use Internet Explorer. Please make sure pop up blocker is not on because you will be prompted to install NetActiveX before viewing the IP camera. Refresh the page to ensure the prompt on the top left had side is no longer requesting that you download NetActiveX.
You can factory reset via direct monitor connection or via web browser. Some models of IP cameras have a hardware reset button whereas the NVR does not have a hardware reset button.
DHCP allows devices to join an IP-based network without having pre-configured IP addresses. DHCP is a protocol that assigns unique IP addresses to devices, then releases and renews these addresses as devices leave and re-join the network. IVSEC NVRs and IP cameras are shipped with a static IP address 192.168.1.888 then DHCP can easily be enabled.
