Port Forwarding HELP needed on SRX5308 for Arlo System

I am looking for a detailed procedure, step by step, on how to Open Ports 443 & 80 - I am totally lost here. I tried following the instructions for Firewall Protection / Inbound Rules (Port Forwarding) on Page 140 of the SRX5308 Reference Manual but I'm just not getting it.  

 

I just purchased (2) Arlo Netgear 5 Camera Systems but won't be able to view any video without these 2 ports Open

 

Any help would be most appreciated

Hi tomtorre,

 

Welcome to the community! Smiley Happy

 

Let us isolate the problem.  Kindly answer the questions below:

 

a. Did you encounter any error message?  If yes, what does the error message says?

b. What is the current firmware version of the SRX5308?

c. I believe you have a modem where the SRX5308 is connected to, is your modem a modem-router combination or a modem-only device?

 

I look forward to your response.

 

 

Regards,

Thanks for the reply

 

A) I am not getting any error messages, I am just trying to be proactive here.  The Arlo Netgear Security Camera System will arrive today and I noticed on the Arlo website that ports 443 & 80 must be OPEN in order to stream the Arlo Camera Video to any Smartphone or the Arlo Web App.

After searching this community I found a video that shows how to Add a Custom Security Services, so I set up 2 New Ones:

Name - Type - Start Port - Finish Port

ArloONE - TCP - 80 - 80

ArloTWO - TCP - 443 - 443

 

I think this is correct so far but I think I have to add these 2 services to Firewall Rules, I haven't so far, I think it's best to wait for the Arlo System to arrive

 

B) Latest Bios, 4.3.3-6 is installed on the SRX5308

 

C) I have a Cable Modem from my ISP and then the SRX5308 is Behind That - this would be the 1st time I ever had to creat Firewall Rules so pardon any ignorance to setting things up.

 

I appreciate your response

Hi tomtorre,

 

I agree that we should wait for the Arlo units to arrive.  Then, you can set Inbound firewall rules for the Arlo units after it has been set up.

Re: Port Forwarding HELP needed on SRX5308 for Arlo System

Hi DaneA,

    I just installed my 5 camera Arlo system and it works GREAT to my Smartphone App but I keep getting "Your base station is not connected to the Internet. Please make sure it's powered on and connected to your router." when I try to see the status of my cameras through ANY Web browser on my network.  I really think the ports 443 and 80 has to be Open on the Netgear SRX5308... I just don't know how to open these ports - any help is appreciated

Thank in Advance

Tom Torre

    Thanks for the link, it really helped - I reinstalled Windows 7 and my Arlo desktop is working well in Chrome - I am slowly adding my Apps back in to see which one may be the offending one.

Thanks again for all your help
