Junior sysadmin here: I would like to enable a remote user to view security camera footage on DVR using its client software installed on the remote machine. Software is Nuvico CMS Lite, DVR is also Nuvico brand. Router is a Netgear Prosafe FVS315G.
I have configured simple Hamachi VPNs for remote access to Windows machines, but not yet tried anything beyond that. How will the software navigate private IPs over a VPN?
Inside the network, you point the software to an IP:port with the right user and pass. Outside the network, it obviously doesn't work if I point it at our public IP with the right port, etc. On a VPN, how do I point the software to a private IP on the other end of the VPN instead of the local network? Does port forwarding come in to play? I'm having trouble understanding how that works.
I don't think I need any help with my specific hardware, despite having listed it. I'd like to know how IP will work in this situation, and perhaps a recommendation for a VPN protocol that would suite this purpose.
