first of all wanted to say that this is a great forum, helped me a lot.
The thing is, my sister has a house with around 20 cameras witch she can view in the house from the TV and her mac, but she would like to view them even from the internet when she's not home.
What steps are required to connect to the DVR from the internet if it's already configured to work on LAN?
Does it have the functionality to be viewed remotely? Our DVR's have it built into the firmware. They have a built in server that will allow you to connect remotely to view your cameras but not all DVRs on the market have this feature.
