Dynamic DNS

Post by mata7 » Mon Jul 08, 2019 6:16 am

im new to blue iris and using the demo right now, is posible to use dynamic dns service so that I have a hostname rather than IP address, like for example i will like to setup a nvr.example.com

thanks in advanced

Yes, you have to use a Dynamic DNS like NoIP.com to map a name to your WAN IP address. Then port forward your Blus Iris port to the LAN IP of the PC where Blue Iris is running.

You can use the Remote Access Wizard on the Webserver page to test the setup.
