Post How to setup DNS for HIK NVR?

Hi all,
I'm in the process of setting up my new HIK NVR and am trying to get the DDNS service to function correctly on it.
I've tried a few different settings for the "Server Address" but I always get "connect to server failed" as a result.

Here is what I currently have:

DDNS TYPE: CUSTOM DDNS
Server Address: ns1.dynu.com
Domain: mydomain.dynu.net
User Name: theloginusernameforthedynusite
Password: thepasswordforthedynusite
Status: "Connect to server failed"

Am I not putting the correct "Server Address" in?
Or is there a port I need to open on the router for this to work? The HIK ports that it wants me to open are:
HTTP: 80
RTSP: 554
HTTPS: 443
Server Port: 8008

Do I need to open all of those 4 ports on the router or what?

Thanks all!

The server address should be api.dynu.com.

Hi, can you tell me if you managed to solve this as I am having exactly the same problem. I have tried api.dynu.com, ns1.dynu.com and still I am getting failed to connect to server on the Hikvision software. Thanks
