Without knowing anything about the DVRs themselves and only gleaning a bit about your network setup from your remarks, it's hard to know what's going
Unless they are establishing a connection to a server on the Internet and you're connecting through there, it's not clear how you're able to access
the 4-port DVR from the Internet in the first place if the DVRs are sharing an IP behind NAT, unless you're already using port forwarding for the
Without knowing more, it sounds like what you need is to have port forwarding setup for both. The ports to forward can't be the same obviously but
internally (on the devices), that shouldn't be a problem.
As an example, assume the external IP is 10.10.10.1 and the internal IPs are 192.168.1.101 and 192.168.1.102. The default port for access to the DVRs
would say, 12345.
On the gateway device, you'd setup two forwards:
1. Port 12345 (10.10.10.1:12345) forwarded to port 12345 on 192.168.1.101
2. Port 12346 (10.10.10.1:12346) forwarded to port 12345 on 192.168.1.102
