    Hi,

    I have Dahua NVR-5216 (thanks to Andy) and based on my limited knowledge of networking I have setup it as following for accessing it locally and remotely.

    locally : through NVR local IP 192.168.XX.XX
    remotely: using No-ip ddns-----xxxxx.ddns.net:xxxx

    I have two devices setup in gDMSS app LOCAL and REMOTE. When home then I use local otherwise remote. I have my notification setup on LOCAL but I cannot access playback/image from the NVR when outside the network as the address is pointing to local IP address.

    Is there a way to use only one access address that will connect with NVR based on my location (inside or outside network).

    I apologize if this has been addressed or answered somewhere else as I could not find it.

    DO NOT PORT FORWARD. You will get cyberjacked.

    Please see the VPN notes.

    Hi @AKhan

    Figuring how to do this will take you a little DIY time. Do check out the VPN notes. You will want to run a VPN server on your router.
