Port Forward Remote Access

Looking to enable port forwarding in Agent DVR? With the free version, port forwarding is disabled, but don't worry! You can unlock this feature by purchasing a license. Just a heads-up: port forwarding success isn't always guaranteed as some networks and firewalls might block necessary traffic for WebRTC connections.

If you're encountering issues with accessing Agent via port forwarding, make sure to check your firewall settings. Ensure the application isn't blocked and that the following ports are forwarded and unblocked on both your firewall and antivirus:

  • 8090 TCP/UDP for the web interface – the gateway to your Agent DVR.
  • 3478 TCP/UDP for the STUN/TURN server – crucial for establishing stable connections.
  • 50000-50010 TCP/UDP for Web RTC connections – for seamless communication over the web.

👍 Set these up correctly, and you're all set for a smoother remote access experience with Agent DVR!
