Hi. I’m new in openwrt community and a DD-WRT user for like 3 years+. I have one problem with setting up my openwrt router and my home ip camera DVR.
First, my FFTH modem is in bridge and my router operating in PPOE (Linksys WRT1200ac/OpenWRT). Previous of using openwrt, I had no problems setting up access to my DVR over internet. I’m sure that I have one accessible external/public IP and everything goes fine when I use the DD-WRT firm.
My problem is that when using OpenWRT I only have local access to my DVR, I can’t connect to it using my external ip, no matter what I do. I already have forwarded and opened all required ports, but still can’t access the DVR.
My home internet arquiteture is:
MODEM (ISP – Bridge) -- ROUTER (PPOE) --- DVR – COMPUTER (I can acess without problem my files server and my the computer via VNC using the external ip).
What I suspect ?
Well, I already tried to do the same thing setting DD-WRT in the router and could access my computer via vnc, my files server and my DVR too. In the DD-WRT I have disabled the firewall. So, maybe if I disable the firewall in openwrt it should work?
I already search about it, and tried to do, but if I disable the firewall of the openwrt I lost my internet access in all of my dispositives. My firewall rules and traffic are set to allow any host and port of the DVR internal IP.
Already tried to disable and enable VLANs but I don’t know much how to deal with it…
Maybe it’s the firewall zone that is not properly configured ? I didn’t made any changes to it, so, its like the default one.
Is anyone can help me ? I know that is hard to explain and figure out what is happening, but is someone here with the same problem or know how to solve it ?
thank you, and sorry for my bad english.
