I purchased 4 CCTV Cameras + DVR for my home and i’m having trouble connecting to them remotely on my iphone?

I have the DVR connected to my LAN, i can view the cameras on my wifi network from my iphone 4 with no problem but as soon as i disconnect from my home wifi network i cannot view them. I’ve tried reading up on the manual for the DVR and the app i purchased from the itunes store that allows me to view them on a 3g network. But im still not having any luck. Can someone help please???
The port that i chose for my DVR is open, but the app on my Iphone is still saying the ip address is not accessible on my 3g network, still works perfect on my wifi signal though.

Sounds like your router is blocking access to your LAN (which it is suppose to do). You need to change your router settings to allow access, on a specific port, then port-forward that port to your dvr.

Google tutorials on those issues for step by step instructions.
