    Uverse - Pace 5031NV - Can't setup Remote CCTV Access...

    Prior to Uverse, I had Comcast Xfinity (not bad, but expensive).  I setup my CCTV DVR access through a Dynamic DNS and it worked like a charm.  The Xfinity RG was hooked up to a Linksys E3500 and that is how i setup a static ip to the DVR and port forwarding was done.

     

    Now, I get Uverse a few weeks (a day before vacation) and the installer says "No Linksys".  So, I hook up the DVR to the unmanaged switch and the switch connected to the router.  I use the Pinholes, DMZ etc. setting to setup an application pointing to the static IP and open the same ports as before.

     

    Guess what?  I cannot access the DVR.  In my mobile phone, i set it up using my RG IP address (whatismyip) and added the port like i would normally, but I cannot access the camera system.

     

    I don't know if anyone understands my post, but i need help.  In a nutshell, i cannot setup my new Uverse Residential Gateway Pace 5031NV to allow port forwarding to my static ip DVR on the network.

     

    By the way, through the RG i can see the ip setup for the DVR and i can access it locally, just not remotely.

    1) You could have used your Linksys in a router behind router configuration.  See post 2 in this thread.

     

    2) When you test this using your mobile phone, are you on your local WiFi or on the carrier network.  I'm not sure about the 5031's firmware, but the other RG's will not loopback the public address into your network if you're on local WiFi.  If on your carrier's network, it should work.

    Well I did not want to use the router behind the rg because I was concerned
    about bridging the rg since I have voice.

    I made sure I was not on local network. Does not work. Something wrong with
    my setup but I can't figure it out.

    Hm... a lot of people have done this with the other RGs, and you should be able to as well.

     

    Maybe you could post a screen shot of each of the relavant configuration pages?  The thing in the editor window that looks like a tree (between the link and the filmstrip) will allow you to upload pictures or link to pictures elsewhere on the web.

     

    Hide your public IP address if it appears on any of those captures, please, or the moderators will delete the picture.

    I will upload pictures when I get home. I am pretty sure I have done
    everything right. But you never know.

    If i put the rg in bridge mode will my voice service still work?

    Yes.  The IP Passthru mode of that modem isn't quite Bridge Mode.

    What is the IP Passthru mode? How do i engage or enable this? Do i need to setup the linksys ea3500 differently or do i just use that as managed switch/router.

    Here are a few screen shots from the settings and other tabs for the rg.

    This is the most interesting.  The log below shows the packet passed to the dvr but its not working.  So, its close but i don't know what this means.

    Does the device itself work on ports 8100 & 8180, or are those just the external ports you used on the previous configuration and mapped it to a different port on the DVR as it was translated through the NAT?

     

    BTW, I mispoke.  "IP Passthrough" is the Motorola term.  Pace uses "DMZ Plus".  But you should be able to just configure the pin holes and use the Security DVR wtihout using this "psuedo-bridge" set up.

    Not sure. It is a Honeywell hrep 16d2t. I have another one at work and it was setup using those ports and it worked. I used those same ports for my old configuration.

    Dmzplus mode is not desirable if I don't have to do it.

    Jeff ace. You suggested a different source of the problem, but since the forum maintenance, your post was not part of the backup. Anyhow you thought maybe the gateway setting on my dvr was set according to my Linksys setup at 192.168.1.1. You were right. The uverse rg IP address is 192.168.1.254. I changed it and the clouds cleared. Sun was shining and I felt like the biggest fool. Thanks for pointing out the not-so-obvious check.

    JefferMC. We responded to this post at exactly the same time. I made the change last night and the mobile connection lit up. We are good to go and it was all you. Thanks a lot.

    So how does my Xbox get connection since all I did there was to change the network I hooked up to and password? Separate issue and I won't worry about a response. Just got me thinking about other connections in house and their settings. Directv dvrs Xbox

    The answer is static vs DHCP address acquisition.  When you configure a static address you have to configure the gateway and netmask manually (DNS too, if appropriate).  When an address is configured dynamically via DHCP, the DHCP server provides the default gateway, netmask and DNS addresses to the client.
