Hi, I am A. Stevens here to help with your question!
Unfortunately, you can't just connect the LAN cable direct from the DVR and the PC
You would need to setup either a switch or a router to connect the two.
You might already have a router setup, dependent on what modem you might be using for your internet service
If so, you would just need to connect a LAN cable from your DVR to your router
And then a LAN cable from your PC to your router
and then the two should be able to communicate, assuming they have the right configuration.
Please let me know when you return, so that we can continue working on this question. I will respond as soon as possible when I see your reply.
My lan cable is connected to my router and a cable from my router to my computer as for the configuration I don't know how to do this
Ah, I see.
Thanks for that information.
What Operating System are you using on the computer?
windows 7 32 bit
And when you say you are entering the IP address
You are putting that in to the configuration of the supplied software?
Sorry for the very late response
I have been without internet the last few days and was unable to sign in
So I think that we would need to make some adjustments in your firewall/router to allow communication to the DVR
