Server :: Connecting CCTV DVR To Router With Port Forwarding?
Jul 30, 2011
1. Need to connect 2 CCTV DVRs and view from remote. 2. Can get a static IP address. But I dont know if this is a secure way since any once can view if the know the ip address. 3. Question is : is it possible to connect the DVR( s) to a linux server which will get user name and password before letting us view the DVR. Currently there is one set as follows: 1. From location X a device is connected to location Y using leased line and static IP (12 kms distance). In location Y a router is placed and port forwarding is configured. From Location Z using internet and remote desktop concept the device at location X is viewed and data captured. Is it possible to use a similar concept but with some sort of security authentication procedure in place.
I'm trying to get my SSH server I set up on my home box working from behind a router. A 2wire 2700HG-B gateway, in fact. Now, I know my server is working fine, because I can get into it via loopback, anywhere inside the LAN from another machine, OR if I go into the router's config and enable DMZ for the machine. However, I don't like having DMZ on all the time because of the kludge-ness of it, and the security issue of the complete absence of a hardware firewall.If I try to port forward and access it from outside the LAN using the external IP (or my DynDNS, because it's dynamic), it just times out. I have a nonstandard port (45) for the listen port of the server, to keep away hack attempts if I were using the standard 22. I used this to see if the port was open, and it said it was. But, I tried the trick of telnetting the IP with that port, and it also timed out, instead of printing stuff about OpenSSH.
Attached is a screenie of my router's firewall page, so you all can look at it and see if I'm an idiot and doing it wrong. You might notice uTorrent there, it's because this machine is a dual-boot with 7, and the router doesn't differentiate the OS's. Also the SSH @ 46 port is for the Windows side, with freeSSHd. I changed the port on that one so the client I have can distinguish them, so it can run a reachability test.
I have logged into my router and set up port-forwarding on port 22. I can log into the machine fine from a machine on the local network using the machines internal IP but when I try to log on from a remote machine using my router's external IP or my DyDNS host-name I get a message saying "connection refused" or "connection timed out." I have configured port-forwarding on the router and the firewall rules says that port 22 is open but when I nmap my routers external ip it says that only port 23 and 80 are open. I am very new to linux and networking.
Say I have Computer A behind a router with NAT. I'm unable to add any port forwarding rules to that router. Then I have Computer B with a public IP address that I want to forward X windows from. This computer is headless, but does have a video card so X windows can be used. Here are some of the things I'd perform to setup my scenario.
1. Computer B, I'd run xhost + public_ip of NAT router. 2. Make sure that computer B's sshd service has X11 forwarding enabled. 3. SSH from Computer A to Computer B with the X windows forward option. 4. Once in Computer B, set the DISPLAY env variable to the public_ip of NAT router. 5. On Computer B run xclock.
At this point I'd expect to see an instance of xclock originating from Computer B onto my desktop. However this obviously won't work. The problem is that when the request is made to Computer B to forward the instance of xclock to Computer A the forwarded instance of xclock will get stuck at the NAT router. Without a port forwarding rule the NAT router will not know which internal IP to route the instance of xclock.
Here's my question. Is there any way for Computer A to initiate a connection to Computer B and then forward the instance of xclock? That way if it uses that same connection the NAT router will know which internal IP to route it to because it would be an active connection in the router's routing table. Or is there an alternative? Of course I can vnc into another computer outside the NAT network and then forward an X window to it just fine. But in the spirit of expanding my knowledge on X windows I'd like to see what is possible.
what I have: Belkin G Wireless Router Model F5D7234-4. To attempt to get Subsonic working, I changed the port forwarding settings (Belkin calls it Virtual Servers) to forward port 4040 to my desktop computer. I then saved changes, and my wireless disconnected. I waited about 3 minutes, and nothing was happening, so I restarted my router. This left me in the position that I am in now. Even when the router and modem are fully booted, the router does not broadcast my SSID. In addition, a wired connection will not connect to the network through the router. This leaves me completely unable to use wireless, and unable to change any settings in the router.
I've managed to confirm that I can reach my home network via ssh from a remote location through my SMC Barricade when it is directly connected to the desktop machine but when the second router is put back into the chain ssh requests time out. The second router is a Linksys WRT 54GL running the Tomato firmware. The chain looks like this: ISP's router (bridged) --> Barricade -->WRT54GL-->desktop
The Barricade has port 22 forwarded to the Linksys' WAN address and it in turn forwards to the desktop address. It appears that it is a setting on the Linksys firmware that is preventing the remote connection. I've looked through the various settings many times but cannot see anything that would cause the problem.
I have just set up shorewall on my router running Arch Linux. The external network is on eth0 and the internal network on eth1.I have set it up for masquerading and that works fine and I can open ports to the firewall. But I'm having trouble with port forwarding to my internal machines.The problem I have is that when port 22350 is forwarded to 192.168.1.3 on my local network, checking the port with nmap from a remote computer gives me:
I need to get software for viewing my shop cameras from my laptop with wwan card. I have an ADT 8 camera DVR and a Motorola Netopia 3347-02 router from AT&T. My shop computer is running Windows 7 with RASPlus for viewing locally. I have a Dell Lattitude D520 laptop with Knoppix 6.2 and a WWAN card. What software do I need to view the cameras from the road? What do I need to do to get past my router? I hear that Zoneminder is not good enough to handle the 8 cameras.
As it stands I have a small home network operating behind my modem/router. Some of the ports on this are forwarded to my PS3 for gaming but I was looking at forward some for my file server.
At the moment I've forwarded port xxx22 to port 22 on my server for SSH for instance. ANd similarly 21 for FTP (although it doesnt seem to want to connect for any more than a few seconds using that). What I was thinking of doing was placing a small website for a handful of ppl to use on the server too and port forward again - xxx80 to 80. It works just fine but I'm a little concerned on the security front.
As I've moved the port to something different from the outside world I'm presuming I will have already cut the potential for malicious folks to wander in but is there anything else I should be doing? At the moment there's no firewall operating on the server, usually as its hidden behind the modem/router. But if I open this thign up more permanently what should I be doing? I've read a few articles on it but I'm always left with the overwhelming thought of "Thats if theres no firewall in my router" as they just seem to do the same.
Code:22.214.171.124 FIREWALL (my external address) 192.168.1.5 - FTP server How to create portforwarding for such a configuration. I`m not interesting about iptables rules. I would like to know which port should I redirect and how ? FTP server usualy using 20 and 21. What about VSFTPD with SSL ? Also 20 and 21 ?
I have two PC's, one with slackware and one with arch, and I am trying to access the web server from the archlinux machine but i haven't manage to do that. The archlinux machine is connect to the internet via the slackware machine via a crossover cable: internet > eth0 (pc1) and ppp0 (the PPPoE connection, pc1) > eth1 (pc1) > eth0 (pc2)
I currently have a gui running on port 8000 on some of my remote servers, unfortunately i do not control the firewall so can not open that outbound port to access it from hereIs there a way with an ssh tunnel to redirect that to another port so i can access it from here?
This should be easy but for some reason its not working. I don't have admin rights on one of my local networks to open the firewall for port 80 to make my server accessible remotely (from the internet). I have a remote server (OpenVZ VPS) and I want to port forward so that [url]:8080 will point to my localhost:80 from the internet itself (i can get it to work on the remote VPS server's local network)...
How could I accomplish this? Basically, I am trying to serve webpages from behind a firewall using a VPS as a hub.
I set up a dynamic DNS address for my home network. Let's call it [URL]. Then I set up one of my machines with a bind9 DNS server and pointed my router's DNS setting to it. I did this so that I could resolve awesome.server.com from machines inside my network and have them correctly find my server. Then I set up a second machine to serve web pages using [URL]. I did this by forwarding port 9200 on my router to port 80 on that machine. This works, but of course, it only works from outside my network.
What is the best way to get [URL] to work from inside my network?
I've tried setting up the iptables on my server to forward that port, but it just times out. I used these rules that I found by searching the internet:
Code: iptables -A PREROUTING -t nat -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 9200 -j DNAT --to 192.168.0.300:80 iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW --dport 9200 -i eth1 -j ACCEPT
However, those rules might be failing because they are intended to forward ports requested from outside the network. I must admit, this iptables stuff is way, way over my head. Is there a different method that I must use to make it work inside my network? Or is there a better way besides iptables?
If I forward port 5764 to port 80 to my VOIP device, I can nmap and get a proper connection. If I forward port 5764 to port 22 to my server, it comes up filtered. It even happens if I try forwarding port 80 to my server. So I'm sure it has something to do with my server, but I'm not sure.Here's my Linksys iptables:
I'm trying to enable port forwarding so I can use my computer as an FTP server to some friends. Here's my setup:
CLEAR wireless modem <--> LAN port 4 on router (not WAN) and LAN port 1 on router <---> eth0 in Ubuntu 9.10
The modem acts as a DHCP server which successfully assigns an IP address to my desktop system. I can also go onto the internet just fine on my desktop, and any other computer that connects to the router.
I have enabled port forwarding on the modem (not the router because it's being used as a switch, and not using its WAN port) to forward ports 21 and 80 to my desktop. What I don't understand, though, is that when I try to FTP to the modem's WAN IP address, the connection is refused. However, when I use websites such as:
I am a network/system Administrator in an avg. based company, we are using Cent Os as servers. We are developing applications in both php & java, for java we are using apache tomcat as server (port number 8080) & for php we are using apache as server (port 80). Php applications are uploaded in the server and giving the link to our clients like localhost.com/chrome. Now we are planning to give the java based application for testing purpose to clients & can give the application link to client as localhost.com:8080/mozilla. Is it is possible to change the link localhost.com:8080/mozilla to localhost.com/mozilla with out changing the portnumber of apache tomcat server & without interrupting the php applications, that means our clients can access php application as localhost.com/chrome & java application as localhost.com/mozilla in the same server at the same time.
I am setting up Apache (Fedora 12) inside my home network. From inside my home network I access it without any problem. I need to set it up to access it from internet. I have the following questions. Here is temporary setup for testing purpose. Internet-->ADSL modem (SEIMENS Speed Stream 4200)---> Apache (Fedora 12)
1. Do I have to do any kind of ports forwarding on ADSL modem. (There is no option to do port forwarding on Modem) May be I need different Model of Modem?? 2. I tired to Ping my real IP for modem form another computer from internet. I am even unable to PING the ADSL 's real IP. Why it is that?
sudo ssh -L 750:192.168.123.103:873 firstname.lastname@example.orgIt does exactly what it's supposed to do, but how do i edit / remove this rule?Is there some config file where i can alter the forwarding? How does it get stored?Im using Ubuntu 10.10Server Edition (allthough i recon it would be pretty much the same across all versions
I'm not that great with mailservers, and just been thrown a curveball with a MS Exchange environment for which there is apparently no solution... yeah, right. But is there a workaround?
The problem is that the site mail (SMTP) needs to be sent via port 26 instead of the commonly used 25. Port 25 is mapped to a mailfilter, which apparently causes havoc with some of the mail, and the techs that have been on site trying to coax the Exchange server to co-operate have said that the only way would be to get rid of the filter.
The problem is that there are number of apps that are unable to have the outgoing port changed and so keep sending mail out on port 25.
I look after the Unix/Linux side of things at work, and I was wondering if there was an easy way to set up a Ubuntu box to receive mail on port 25 and just forward it to the MS box on port 26? So, in other words (and I hope this makes sense): monitor port 25, and forward whatever comes in on port 25 to the server on port 26. Simple portforwarding, or is it? What steps do I need to take?
I'll explain this in one sentence: Is it possible to program a port-binding shellcode in which people across the Internet can connect to, without being thwarted by the router blocking their data because the port its bound to doesn't allow port-forwarding
I want to use centos as a developer server on my desktop before deploying my stuff to the internet.
I have a netgear DG834G router. It's IP address on my local network is 192.168.0.1 and connected to the adsl line. The router is set up to act as an dhcp server too. On the router I have reserved ip address for the nics per their mac addresses.
My server is on a dual boot desktop. The other boot is XP and works fine, picks up dhcp.
I don't know how to connect Centos to the router.
I have tried to play with the network manager but to no avail.
I can ping localhost, interface eth0 is there, but i can't ping to the router.
I have set the manager system/administration/network to get dhcp automatically.
I can't activate the eth0 although the hardware device says it is OK.
