In this post I will be going over the port forward configuration setup for Verizon routers.
1.) Open a web browser like Internet Explorer or Firefox. Enter the internal IP address of your router in the address bar of your browser. By default the IP address should be set to 192.168.1.1
2.) You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now.
3.) Click "Yes" to proceed.
4.) Click the "Firewall Settings" icon, located on the middle of the top bar.
5.) Click "Port Forwarding", in the menu on the left.
6.) Click "Add", located in red near the bottom left corner. Most likely you will have to create a custom port.
7.) The "Add Port Forwarding Rule" screen appears. Click the arrows next to "Specify Address". A drop down menu appears. Select the name of the device that you want to port forward.
8.) Select the type of Protocol from the Protocol drop down menu.
9.) Change "Forward to Port" to say "Specify", then enter the device or applications port number that you need to forward.
10.) Now Click Apply.
11.) Once you have saved the settings go to http://videos.cctvcamerapros.com/check-open-port-forwarding-tool and type in the port number that you have forwarded. Make sure it is open. If the port is closed proceed to the next step.
12.) Go back into your routers interface go to Firewall Settings > Click yes to proceed > Change to Minimum Security and save the settings. Now Repeat step 10.
