This article contains a step by step guide meant to show you how to remotely connect to your DIVAR Network or Hybrid by using your phone/ tablet via DIVAR Mobile Viewer App.
Please make sure that the monitor & mouse & Keyboard are connected to your DIVAR.
When adding your DIVAR in Remote Portal, please consider to use a separate Technician account when performing this action.
In case you are using an Admin account to connect your DIVAR to it and if you forgot the password of the Admin account, after resetting it, you will be required to re-add the password locally, physically on your DIVAR.
Therefore, by using a Technician account added into an Admin account, after resetting the Admin account password, this action will not impact the password of your DIVAR when adding it into the Remote Portal.
First, you have to create a Remote Portal account from your DIVAR Hybrid/ Network, if you don't have one account yet.
To create a new Remote Portal account:
Make sure the recorder is connected to the open internet, before you configure the DDNS service. (see point B)
6 Click Save
This message should be displayed:
After logging in to your Bosch Remote Portal Account (with the credentials you previously set within your DIVAR, DDNS tab), you should be able to see the DIVAR as connected:
Now, you have to go in the UPnP menu and tick the box next to Enable > click Apply
The status should display "Success" and the LAN IP and WAN IP fields will be populated. The table shows the port-forwarding rules that will be passed through your router, if UPnP is enabled on the router.
Please make sure that the Public IP is correctly set.
If you don’t know what your Public IP is, type in “what is my IP” in any search engine and you will find it.
⚠️ For remote access on your Divar Network/Hybrid, you will need to forward certain communication ports on your router that connects you to the internet.
Read your router manual for instructions to forward ports to a device or you can refer to this link where basic information on Port Forwarding are provided.
The Divar Mobile Viewer App only needs TCP port 37777.
However, if you also plan to connect remotely to the unit via web browser, you will need to forward the HTTPS port and/or HTTP port. Bosch advises to use only HTTPS connections for a higher security.
See below an overview of the ports default values and their usage:
Bosch strongly recommends to only use HTTPS communication. However, if the network bandwidth is limited, the system has a very high load or the remote workstations are not powerful enough, the HTTP connection can be used to increase the systems performance and reduce network bandwidth stress.

Option 1: by scanning the QR code (next to the DDNS name) displayed on the DIVAR's screen
Option 2: by manually adding the details.
Note: if you manually add the details, for remote connection you should enter the Domain name from the DDNS menu on your DIVAR:
The abc icon is displayed in the domain name when you are hovering over it. Move the mouse outside of it to make the abc icon disappear.
⚠️ Behind the abc icon there is '.' and not '@'
Whether you follow the Option 1 or Option 2, you will have the overview below in the DIVAR Mobile Viewer App:
Enter the Username and the password and click Start Live Preview
The username and the password are the credentials of your DIVAR!
