Firewalla DHCP mode creates an overlay network above your main network. If you want to create a port forwarding for your devices, such as accessing your NAS or cameras outside your home, you are required to take an extra step to create port mapping on Firewalla in addition to creating port forwarding on your router.
Note: Although this setup allows you to access NAS device or camera remotely while you are outside of your home, this is not the most secure way of doing it. In this article, we suggest our users to use Firewalla VPN service instead, to achieve the same capability with security protection.
For example: If you want to access your home camera's website (http, TCP port 80) remotely, you need to set up port forwarding (e.g. TCP 8080 -> 8081) on your router and set up port forwarding (e.g. TCP 8081 -> 80) on Firewalla. You will be able to access camera website by http://<Firewalla_DDNS>:8080
*Note: For port 8080 and 8081, you can choose your own port, as long as they are consistent between the router and Firewalla. It is not recommended to open any well-known ports on your router (e.g. 22, 80, 443 and etc), because it will much more likely be attacked.
Step 1: On your router, create a port forwarding to forward TCP port 8080 to a Firewalla's Port, say Port 8081. Detailed steps depend on each router's interface.
Here is a general guide: http://www.noip.com/support/knowledgebase/general-port-forwarding-guide/
*Note: If you have multiple layers of routers at your home, you need to set up port forwarding on all routers.
Step 2: On Firewalla, find the Camera you want to access in "Devices", tap "Port Mappings" -> "+" to create a new port mapping. Set the External Port to 8081, as the port on Firewalla; Internal Port to 80, as the Port on your Camera. Tap "Save" to save your setting.
To Access the port: For example, use a browser to access http://<Firewalla_DDNS>:8080. You can find the ddns info in "DDNS" feature. Your Firewalla DDNS automatically points to your public IP.
