If your LAN has a DHCP server, use the following sub-step. Otherwise, use the sub-step procedure below for LANs without DHCP. Installing cameras on LANs with DHCP 1. Connect your camera to the LAN, then power on the camera. 2. Open the IPAdminTool directory on your computer, then double click the file IPAdminTool.exe to start the application. When the IPAdmin Tool starts, it will discover all the IP devices it supports that exist on the network. The discovery process may take a few minutes. BLK-IPS101_CQ 5/27/11 Review the list of IP devices found by IPAdmin Tool. You can identify your camera by the MAC address. If the camera was not found, click the Refresh button every minute until your camera appears in the list. 3. After finding your camera, right click the entry, then select IP Address from the drop-down list. An IP Setup window will open. d. NOTE Record the IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway for your PC’s Ethernet adapter for future reference. The Ethernet adapter data you see by using ipconfig will probably be different from that shown in the example above. If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, the IP address is identified as the “IPv4 Address.” Static Option Check LAN for default IP address compatibility Before connecting your camera to the LAN, check the network to see if IP address 192.168.0.100 is already in use. At a Microsoft Windows computer attached to the LAN where the camera will be connected, open a Command Prompt window and enter: ping 192.168.0.100 4. In the IP Setup window, click the Static option bullet. If you have other compatible network settings you want to apply to the device, enter them in the appropriate locations. Click Setup to save settings. 5. In the Login window, enter the ID and PW (password) for your camera, then click Login. The default administrator values for the ID and PW are root and pass. The “Request timed out” response indicates that the IP address is not in use and the camera can be connected without causing conflicts. If the response from the ping command received a “Reply..”, the IP address is in use. Contact Technical Support for further assistance, if needed. Find network settings (IP addresses) that are not in use 6. 7. In the IPAdmin Tool window, click Refresh. Verify that the entry representing the camera now shows the (new) static IP address. 1. At your PC, find an IP address on your network that is not in use: a. Write down the EXACT IP address of your PC up to the third/last period. Using the example shown above, this expression is: 192.168.1. After the third period, include any number between 1 and 254 that is different from the one in your PC’s IP address, 168. As a first try, let’s choose 200, which will form the IP address 192.168.1.200. b. Next, use the ping command in the Command Prompt window to see if this IP address is in use on your network. Enter: ping 192.168.1.200. Continue with procedure Step 5. Setup camera Basic Configuration. Installing cameras on LANs without DHCP In networks without a DHCP server, cameras must be powered on and reconfigured one at a time to avoid addressing conflicts between other cameras, or possibly with another device on the network. Configuring the network settings of your cameras includes these steps: —— —— —— —— Determine the network settings of your computer. Check the network for compatibility with the default static network settings of your camera. Find an IP address that is not in use and can be assigned to your camera. Attach your camera to the network, power it on, and configuring it with new network settings. Determine the network settings of your computer 1. At a PC attached to the LAN where your camera will be connected, determine the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway of your PC. To find this information: a. 2 Hold down the Windows key and press r to open the Run dialog box. b. Type cmd in the entry field, then click OK to open the Command Prompt window. c. At the command prompt, enter ipconfig. The response will show the your PC’s network settings. www.digiop.com In the example shown above, the message “Reply from 192.168.1.200: ..” indicates that your PC can reach a device with that IP address, and that address is in use (i.e., you cannot use it for your camera). c. Since the ping test showed that 192.168.1.200 is in use, try another number between 1 and 254. Let’s try to ping 192.168.1.201. At the command prompt, enter: ping 192.168.1.201 d. In this test, the message “Request timed out” indicates that your PC cannot reach the device with that IP address, and that address is probably not in use. If this test showed that this IP address is in use, try other IP addresses using the steps above until an unused address is found. © 2011 DIGIOP, Inc. All rights reserved.
