Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.

Expert:  p0llinate replied 1 year ago.

This would not be a password ***** if you have a new router, that router would need to be configured to allow the remote access.

Specifically, several steps are necessary:
Configure router for ddns sevice

Set a static IP address for the dvr

Configure port forwarding to the dvr for both web and media ports

If this is not something you are comfortable doing yourself, I can help you do it remotely as well.

Best regards,
