Hello everyone and thanks for taking your time to review my submission.
I had to setup in the mikrotik firewall under NAT rule for a customers camera system they have installed at their premises. They have a DVR that they can login to view the live stream at all times. Currently I have the customers port forwarding established and they can view their camera systems remotely. However, normally if I wanted to use the Web browser to load up mikrotik GUI on the web, I would type in the IP address for the router that we have for its public gateway, when I do this it is now always directing me to the customers Camera Login Screen.
Typically it should be working were the customer should be entering the IP address that we inform them about and then a colon ( : ) Followed by their port forwarding number to gain accessing into their camera systems remotely.
The customer needs these port forwarding numbers all in TCP: Ports 80, 81, 8000, and 10554.
I go into my Mikrotik Router by Winbox, Click IP, Click Firewall, Click the tab NAT: and begin to add my NAT port forwarding rule.
We set the customer with a static IP address for his Remote Camera system with X.X.X.99 /24
So in the NAT Tab Menu, I click Add new rule, in General I select in Chain: dstnat, and Dst. Address ( Our IP address for the Mikrotik router), then the Protocol: tcp, then the Dst Port: 80, and I select on the In. Interface, on our WAN port.
Next I goto Actions Tab, Under Actions I select: dst-nat, and enter in the To Addresses: X.X.X.99 (customers static IP address we assigned to him for his camera system) and then I Select To Ports: 80,
I repeat this process for all the required ports the customer needs, so they can gain access to their security system through our router.
This is working, however they don’t have to enter the Port Forward number when typing in our Routers IP address, it just directly takes them their!
So for instances the customer is suppose to type X.X.X.72:80 and takes them to their Remote Camera System Login Screen.
However, its now doing this, If I just enter X.X.X.72 with no Port Forward number on the end, it will always take me to the customers Login Screen.
If anyone has any ideas or suggestions I could try to fix this it would be much appreciated.
