Access NVR from the internet with Mikrotik port forwarding

I had to set up access to a Hikvision NVR on local network. Port forward from the public IP of ISP was done. My job was setting port forwarding on Mikrotik router which was connected to the NVR.

It was a lot of hours wasted until I figured it out from lots of forum reading and YouTube videos watching 😀

/ip firewall filter
add action=dst-nat chain=dstnat dst-address=192.168.100.115 dst-port=58000 \
    protocol=tcp to-addresses=192.168.88.3 to-ports=8000
add action=dst-nat chain=dstnat dst-address=192.168.100.115 dst-port=56911 \
    log=yes protocol=tcp to-addresses=192.168.88.3 to-ports=6911

The dst-address had to be the IP address of the router from the WAN side. Check in Quick Set

What’s needed is creating a m3u playlist file with the RTSP stream URLs

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:0,group-title="Kamera",Hatso resz
rtsp://admin:PASSWORD@192.168.88.3:6911/Streaming/Channels/101
#EXTINF:0,group-title="Kamera",Utca
rtsp://admin:PASSWORD@192.168.88.3:6911/Streaming/Channels/201

The m3u file can be uploaded via https://siptv.app/mylist/. You could upload it on a shared web hosting or on your own public web server that can realtime provide updated m3u file.
