A remote access server is the computer and associated software that is set up to handle users seeking access to network remotely. Sometimes called a communication server, a remote access server usually includes or is associated with a firewall server to ensure security and a router that can forward the remote access request to another part of the corporate network. A remote access server may include or work with a modem pool manager so that a small group of modems can be shared among a large number of intermittently present remote access users.

CCTV Remote Access allows you to access your cameras anytime from anywhere. Let’s say for example your company has several branches worldwide and you want to monitor them with regards wherever you are, with remote access this can be done easily.

Most commonly and widely two methods are used for CCTV remote access i.e Port Forwarding and Dynamic DNS. However we are providing our users the proper documentation, how to’s and technical support in configuring remote access for their CCTV system.

Port forwarding or Port mapping is an application of network address translation (NAT) that redirects a communication request from one address and port number combination to another while the packets are traversing a network gateway, such as a router or firewall. This technique is most commonly used to make services on a host residing on a protected or masqueraded (internal) network available to hosts on the opposite side of the gateway (external network), by remapping the destination IP address and port number of the communication to an internal host.

Dynamic DNS (DDNS or DynDNS) is a method of automatically updating a name server in the Domain Name System (DNS), often in Not Real Time, with the active DDNS configuration of its configured hostnames, addresses or other information.

You need to have following things before you proceed to configure remote access feature for your CCTV system.
1. Internet connection at both end i.e NVR/DVR and Laptop, Phone or Tablet.
2. A CCTV viewer software installed on your Laptop, Phone or Tablet.

Now if you fulfill the requirements, you just have to use either method mentioned above to access your cameras remotely.
