What is port?
As usual, the <Webviewer Port> uses port 80.
If the port is not setted, it is automatically regarded to 80 in http protocol.
For example, http://www.yahoo.com and http://www.yahoo.com:80 are regarded the same.
Hence, if the <Webviewer Port> has been changed other than 80, you need to specify the address as: http://
<IP>:<Webviewer Port>
`` ex) http://192.168.1.200:80 to connect to the DVR using internet browser.
(Only when the port is set to 80, you can omit the port in the address.)
It is recommended to set <Webviewer Port> to port number between 1024 and 65535.
If the port is not set to 80, accessing can be restricted depending on your service provider’s security policy or
firewall configuration.
DVR uses <Webviewer Port> and <Port(TCP)> for web connections.
<Webviewer Port> is used for accessing DVR by using an internet browser.
<Port(TCP)> is used for receiving video from DVR to internet browser.
configuring multiple DVR, <Webviewer Port> and <Port(TCP)> settings should be configured differently for
JJ `` When
each device.
`` ex) DVR #1 Port(TCP) : 4520, Webviewer Port : 80
DVR #2 Port(TCP) : 50000, Webviewer Port : 2000
Step 3.2 Checking DVR connection on your computer
1. Run the Internet Explorer, and enter the <IP> and <Webviewer
Port> of the DVR into the address, and press [Enter].
`` ex) http://192.168.1.200:80
2. If the connection establishes properly, the Web Viewer screen
appears.
3. If the connection fails, check Steps 1, 2 and 3 to confirm the
connection setup.

Step 4. Connecting the router to the internet service line
Internet connection setup method and steps may differ from routers, check your router’s setup method.
Connection types according to your internet service
Setting the internet connection may differ from internet service types, check your environment before proceeding and
select the appropriate connection type.
• DHCP(Dynamic) : IP environment which allocates IP address automatically.
• Static(Fixed) : IP environment using public IP addresses.
• PPPoE: Common in DSL environments, which requires ADSL access ID and password.
Ask your internet service provider for the user ID and password.
`` Name of each type described above may differ from router manufacturers.

Step 5. Port forwarding
Port forwarding should be configured for accessing from the outside of the router network to a computer or DVR is connected
to the router.
Configure your router’s port forwarding as followings.
What is port forwarding?
It is a port mapping function of <Router’s WAN (Internet) IP: Port> to <DVR’s IP: Port>, that helps opening a
communication channel between inside and outside of the private LAN
Since one DVR uses 2 ports for communication, port forwarding setup for both 2 ports should be configured.
only <Webviewer Port> is configured for port forwarding:
JJ `` IfAccessing
through the web browser is possible but video is not received since the <Port(TCP)> for video data communication is not
configured for port forwarding.
If only <Port(TCP)> is configured for port forwarding:
Accessing through the web browser is impossible since the <Webviewer Port> for the communication is not configured for port
forwarding.
In the below, port forwarding methods for each router are explained.
For other routers not guided herein, refer to the user manual of the router.

Step 6. Accessing DVR using DDNS service in dynamic IP
environment
Since the router’s WAN IP address may vary in xDSL/Cable connections hiring dynamic IP allocations, DDNS (Dynamic Domain
Name Server) service is provided for accessing the DVR with fixed DDNS address in dynamic IP network environments.
Step 6.1 DVR DDNS configuration
1. Use the up/down buttons (▲▼) in <Network> window to move to
<DDNS>, and press [ENTER] button.
2. Use virtual keyboard to enter user inputs.
