I have a problem with my remotely viewed CCTV?

I have my CCTV and DVR networked…and can
be viewed remotely via a public IP within my
country.
The problem is that my friend is unable to
access it from London. Sometimes when I log
in to view my cameras, I can’t change the
cameras to view another location within my
apartment. Why is tho=is happening please
What kind of firewall rules, is it from the system trying to connect or imposed by the ISP?

The channel changing thing is not something that happens all the time. Sometimes channels can be changed, some other times, I’m stuck with one camera view.

Not being able to change camera views could be many things — can anyone change it remotely?

Channel changing seems like it should happen regardless of whether you have low bandwidth or not. It might take 100 years before you see the change remotely, but it should still happen. But in such a case you would not have video — it would be no video.

    Normally, public IPs are not restricted from being accessible based on the country that is trying to connect. You could achieve this behavior with firewall rules or a gay ISP that wants to impose limits on you, but in general that should not be the case unless you define a rule.

    -It could be either side. Some ISPs will arbitrarily block huge blocks of the Internet from accessing their network as they feel there is a high rate of abuse (hacking, spam, etc.) Or maybe your ISP isn’t blocking anything, but the country you’re trying to connect from is blocking because they don’t like the country you’re trying to connect to. More info is needed to determine the exact cause.
