making particular note of where the connectors and indicators are located.
AXIS 2400+ Front Panel
Status Indicator
The multi-colored status indicator shows
the operational status of the server, as
described below:
•
green - the indicator flashes briefly
and momentarily displays orange
during the start-up and self-test
routines; the indicator then displays
green to indicate a healthy unit status.
•
red - the indicator will display red
only if there is a problem with the
AXIS 2400+
•

server’s IP address in the location/address
field, e.g. 171.1.2.200, as shown here. Configure the audio module from the server’s
administration pages, as described in the following section.
AXIS 2400+/2401+ Admin Manual
The AXIS 2191 Audio Module
Configuring the Audio Module
The video server’s administration pages provide all the tools required for successfully configuring
the AXIS 2191. From the server’s home page, click on the link to Administration Tools and then
follow this procedure:
1. In the Admin tools, click on the icon for COM2. Select the AXIS 2191 Audio Module as
the Purpose for this port. Click Save.
Note:
If the AXIS 2191 is not available for selection, the video server does not have the correct firmware for running this device and must be upgraded. See Updating the Firmware, on page 41.
2.
You should now see the icon for the AXIS 2191 Audio Module under the icon for COM2.
Click this icon to open the Audio Settings page.
3.
Select the Audio Mode. This can be:
• Full-Duplex (Talk and Listen Simultaneously)
• Half-Duplex (Talk and Listen)
• Simplex - Talk
The configuration page for the AXIS 2191.
• Simplex - Listen
This selection will depend on your
application. See page 32 for more
information.
4.
Enter the maximum number of clients that
will be able to access the application at any
one time. Use this setting to limit access if
you only have limited bandwidth available.
5.
If you are using Half-Duplex mode, the Send
option can be used to send audio from the
client currently transmitting to all the other
clients, and not just to the server end. Set to
Yes to enable the function.
6.
When using Half-Duplex, the Push-To-Talk
button will be visible. Select the mode to use
for this button. Selecting Toggle means that
when the button is pushed it will remain so
until pushed again. Instant means that the
button will remain active (pushed) until
released.
7.
Adjust the Volume Out control until a
satisfactory speaker level is heard. The Level Out LED can be used to check that there is audio
being received. Note that both the control and the LED are on the audio module itself.

Using the Audio Module with Your Video Server
Your audio module is now configured and ready for use with your video server. Enter the server’s
IP-address in Internet Explorer, or click Home on the server’s admin page. You should then see the
control panel for the AXIS 2191 below the image. If no audio controls are visible, check that you
have selected the audio module for use on COM2.
NB. Exactly which controls will be
visible below the image depends
on the audio mode you are using.
For example, the Push-to-Talk
button will not be visible in
Full-Duplex mode. Similarly, when
using Simplex - Listen mode, only
the Speaker controls will be
shown. The audio mode is set in
the server’s admin tools.
Push-To-Talk
Used in Half-Duplex or
Simplex - Talk mode.
The button’s own

Select the bandwidth available
for your connection.
Show/Hide Settings
Shows or hides the
slider controls and
level indicators.
Level Adjust IN/OUT
Mute Checkboxes
Drag sliders to adjust level.
Check to mute speaker or microphone.
Using the Different Audio Modes
Full-Duplex
Full-Duplex mode means that you can transmit and receive audio (talk and listen) at the
same time, without having to use any of the controls. This is just like having a telephone
conversation. The only controls you may wish to use are the mute checkboxes to turn off
the sound, and the level sliders, to adjust the input/output levels. This mode requires a
full-duplex sound card on your computer. If your available bandwidth is 0.2Mbit/s or less,
it is recommended that you use Half-Duplex mode instead.
Half-Duplex
Half-Duplex mode also sends and receives audio in both directions, but only in one
direction at a time. This means you must actively transmit with the help of the
Push-to-Talk button. To speak, press the button (check that the microphone is not muted).
When finished speaking, release the button. You will now be receiving audio from the
other end of the connection. Note that the Push-to-Talk button can be configured for use
in two different ways - Toggle or Instant. This is set in the server’s admin tools.
Half-Duplex mode is best if you only have limited bandwidth available.
AXIS 2400+/2401+ Admin Manual
The AXIS 2191 Audio Module
Simplex - Talk
Simplex - Talk mode means that only the web-client end of the connection can transmit audio
(that is, to the AXIS 2191). This can be used to e.g. provide spoken instructions to a person seen
in the image from the video server. This mode also requires the Push-to-Talk button.
Simplex - Listen
Simplex - Listen mode can only receive audio from the AXIS 2191 to the web-client. This can
be used in remote monitoring, web attractions etc., to provide live audio, as well as video, of a
monitored situation.

Other IP Setup Methods
Appendix A - Other IP Setup Methods
As an alternative to the ARP command (described earlier in the Installation section of this
manual), you can set the IP address for your AXIS 2400+/2401+ using any of the following
methods - as appropriate for your operating system:
Method
Operating Systems
AXIS IP Installer
Windows
BOOTP
UNIX
Refer to...
Using the AXIS IP Installer, on page 36.
Requiring a BOOTP daemon on your system, this
method operates over the entire network. A
request to an active daemon initiates a search of
the boot table to find an entry matching the unit’s
Ethernet address. The daemon downloads the IP
address to the device if a match is found.
Notes: •Make sure the AXIS 2400+/2401+ is powered up and connected to the network.
•IP Address: Acquire an unused IP address from your Network Administrator, and do NOT use the
default IP address featured in the following examples when installing your AXIS 2400+/2401+.
•Server Privileges: Although no special privileges are required for Windows 95/98/ME or XP
(Home), you will need Administrator privileges for Windows NT/2000 and XP (Professional).
UNIX systems require Root privileges.
Ethernet/MAC Address: The AXIS 2400+/2401+ is pre-configured with a unique Ethernet/MAC Address
based upon the serial number printed on the underside label of the unit; where the serial number typically
follows the format 00-40-8c-xx-yy-zz. You need this address to complete the installation.
Notes for Macintosh Users
When using the AXIS 2400+/01+ on a Macintosh, please observe the following points:
• The AXIS 2400+/2401+ has a default IP address of 192.36.253.80.
• Assign a temporary IP address to a Mac workstation in the same subnet (e.g. 192.36.253.81)
and then connect to the server.
• Run the Installation wizard and set the desired IP address for the server.
• Reset the correct IP address for the Macintosh workstation.
• Changing the IP address for a Macintosh does not require a reboot.
• Currently there are limitations in the ActiveX Support in Internet Explorer running on the Macintosh. This results in problems when viewing live moving images. The recommended solution
for viewing images from the AXIS 2400+/2401+ on the Macintosh is to use Netscape Navigator.

PINGing Your IP Address
By sending a packet to the specified address and waiting for a reply, the PING utility can
determine whether a specific IP address is accessible. It also provides a particularly useful
method for confirming addressing conflicts with your AXIS 2400+/2401+ on the network.
Having disconnected your AXIS 2400+/2401+, follow the instructions below in association
with Symptoms, Possible Causes and Remedial Actions, on page 39, and run the PING
utility to troubleshoot TCP/IP problems on your network:
1. Start a Command window and type ping x.x.x.x, where x.x.x.x is the IP address of
the AXIS 2400+/2401+.
2. If you receive the reply destination host unreachable, then the AXIS 2400+/2401+
is not accessible on your subnet. You must obtain a new IP address and reinstall the
unit.
3. If this does not solve the problem, disconnect the AXIS 2400+/2401+ from the network
and run PING again. See the table below for an interpretation of the results.

Troubleshooting
Symptoms, Possible Causes and Remedial Actions
Symptoms
The AXIS 2400+/2401+
cannot be accessed from a
browser.
Possible causes
The IP address is already
being used by another
device.
Remedial actions
Run the PING utility (as described above) and follow the
appropriate recommendations.
The IP address is located on a Run the PING utility (as described in PINGing Your IP Address, on
different subnet.
page 38). If you get “no response” or similar, the diagnosis is
probably correct.
In Windows, check that the IP address for your AXIS 2400+/2401+
is on the same subnet as your workstation. Exactly how this is done
varies from one version of Windows to another. See Windows’ help
for more information.
If your AXIS 2400+/2401+ and your workstation are on different
subnets, you will not be able to set the IP address. Contact your
network administrator.
In Windows 95, the ARP
table was empty when you
tried to set the IP address.
In Windows 95, the ARP command cannot be used if you have an
empty ARP table. If the table is empty, re-install the product
ensuring that the IP address for your own PC is also used.
Type arp -a to view the ARP table. If it is empty, you must ping
an existing unit on your network before you can download the IP
address to the AXIS 2400+/2401+, using ARP.
Note: The AXIS IP Installer is an easy-to-use alternative for
installing the unit.
The IP address has changed.
Check that there is no DHCP server running on the network and
disable BOOTP in the video server.
Note: The AXIS IP Installer will not work with DHCP.
Other networking problems.
Test the network cable by connecting it to some other network
device and then PINGing that device from your workstation.
Test the unit’s network interface by connecting a local computer to
the unit, using a standard Crossover (hub-to-hub) Cable.
A programming script is
locking the unit.
The Power indicator is not
constantly lit.
The Network indicator
displays red.
The Status indicator is
flashing red rapidly.
If the above actions do not resolve the problem, the AXIS
2400+/2401+ may be faulty. In this case, try to localize the
problem by connecting the unit to the serial port of a local
computer, using the supplied Null Modem Cable and report your
findings to your local distributor.
Restore the unit to the factory default settings.

Updating the Firmware
Appendix C - Updating the Firmware
The AXIS 2400+/2401+ firmware is stored in Flash memory. This memory is provided by a
silicon chip that, just like any other ROM device, retains data content even after power is
removed. Flash memory is unique because it allows its data to be erased and re-written.
This means you can install firmware updates for your AXIS 2400+/2401+ as they become
available - without having to replace any parts. New firmware can be simply loaded into
the AXIS 2400+/2401+ over the network.
Obtaining Updated firmware
The latest version of the AXIS 2400+/2401+ firmware is available free of charge from the
Axis website at www.axis.com or from your local distributor.
Updating the firmware
The AXIS 2400+/2401+ Flash memory is updated over the network using FTP.
See the detailed instructions supplied with each new firmware release.
Important!
• Always read the upgrade instructions available with each new release, before updating the firmware.
• Upgrading normally takes between 30 seconds and 10 minutes, although it can take longer. After
starting the process, you should always wait at least 20 minutes before power-cycling the AXIS
2400+/2401+ - even if you suspect the procedure has failed.
• In controlled environments, flash memory updates provide a very safe way of updating the firmware.
However, flash products can become damaged if the update is not performed correctly. Your dealer
reserves the right to charge for any repair attributable to faulty updating by the user.

of the AXIS 2400+/2401+.
• When attempting to modify the product, you may inadvertently create a problem that will require
you to return the AXIS 2400+/2401+ to its factory default settings. At worst, you may even cause
permanent damage to the unit that renders it unusable. Consequently, Axis strongly recommends
that inexperienced users DO NOT modify the file system.
Although modification of the file system is not supported, the Axis web at www.axis.com
does maintain various documents designed to assist third-party development. These
include detailed information such as:
• The Axis Camera API, HTTP-Interface Specification
• A description of the reduced PHP3 scripting language
Configuring using FTP
As an alternative to configuring the AXIS 2400+/2401+ using a browser, the configuration
parameters of your unit can be modified using the File Transfer Protocol (FTP).
FTP is supported by most operating environments and is a useful method for quickly
downloading standard pre-configurations to one or more video servers.
AXIS 2400+/2401+ Admin Manual
Customizing The Video Server
Custom Web Pages
The AXIS 2400+/2401+ contains a re-writable flash memory file system that allows some
directories and files to be changed by the root user, using FTP. This strictly non-supported
product functionality, makes it possible for advanced users and application developers to
add their own Web pages, scripts, and other files to the Axis product.
Customizing Procedures
The existing Administration pages are stored in a compressed read-only area of the file
system. If you intend to try changing them you must adhere strictly to the instructions
provided here and ensure that you DO NOT inadvertently change any files other than those
featured in this section. Failure to comply with this notice may render your product
unusable.
All files stored in the /etc/httpd/html directory are available through the product Web
server in the virtual directory /local/. The URL to resident pages in the /etc/httpd/html
directory is http://IP/local/<filename>.htm.
Editing and Storing Your Web pages
Follow the instructions below to create and save customized pages to the AXIS
2400+/2401+:
1. Using a html editor, create your html file and store it on your local PC hard drive.
2. Now use ftp to upload the file to the AXIS 2400+/2401+. Enter the following on the
command line:
ftp <server ip address >
Example!
ftp 172.21.1.200
3. Log on as root with the root password pass.
4. Change to the correct directory within the AXIS 2400+/2401+ by entering the
following command:
cd /etc/httpd/html
5. For binary storage of the files (not absolutely necessary, but good practice), type bin.
6. Upload your html files by entering:
put <filename.html>

AXIS 2400+/2401+ Admin Manual
Start your browser and view the Web pages you uploaded, by entering the following
URL in the location/Address field:
http://<server ip address>/local/<filename.html>
Example!
http://172.21.1.200/local/index.html
The images are now updated in your browser.
8. Enter bye in the command window to exit the ftp program.
Note:
You can change the html files as and when you like, but remember that the available flash
memory is limited.
AXIS 2400+/2401+ Admin Manual
Customizing The Video Server
Creating a New Home Page
Having created and stored your new custom Web pages in product memory, you then
proceed to assign one of these pages as your default Home page in the AXIS 2400+/2401+,
as described below:
Caution!
Adding a new Web page to your AXIS 2400+/2401+ is not something that should be undertaken lightly.
Remember: Axis does not support the personalization of product Web pages and strongly recommends
that inexperienced users DO NOT perform such modifications.
1. Start a new ftp session to the AXIS 2400+/2401+, by entering:
ftp <camera ip address >
2. Type bin
3. Navigate your way to the appropriate directory, entering:
cd /etc/httpd/conf/
4. Fetch the boa.conf file, by typing:
get boa.conf
5. Edit boa.conf and add the following line to the end of the file:
Alias /index.html /etc/httpd/html/index.html
Alias / /etc/httpd/html
This will create an alias to your own “homemade” index.html file stored in the
/etc/httpd/html/ directory and redirect access to it. Replace the edited boa.conf in
the video server, by using the Put command.
Note:
As an alternative to the above, you might like to edit the line starting with Document Root
so that it points directly to the local directory. However, after doing this you will then be
unable to access the original Home pages - so be warned!
6. After making these changes, you will not be able to automatically access the default
index page. Instead you must type in the complete URL to access it:
http://IP#/view/indexFrame.shtml

Controlling and Monitoring
By entering http requests in your browser’s URL field, you can:
• drive the relay output high or low
• monitor the status of the 4 digital inputs
This requires you to have root access to the AXIS 2400+/2401+ and consequently, to
supply a user name and password. Login as root and supply the root password (default =
pass).
Tip!
Developers wishing to create applications incorporating sophisticated alarm conditioning using the
relay output and digital inputs are encouraged to read the Camera API, HTTP-Interface Specification,
available from the Axis Web at www.axis.com.
Relay Output
You can use the supported relay output to directly drive a maximum load of 24V AC/DC at
100mA. By connecting additional relay circuitry, it can also drive heavier loads.
The output relay is controlled using http requests, as defined in the following examples:
Example 1: - Set output 1 ON
http://myserver/axis-cgi/io/output.cgi?action=1:/
Example 2: - Set two 300ms pulses with 500ms delay between the pulses on output 1.
http://myserver/axis-cgi/io/output.cgi?action=1:/300\500/300\
Example 3: - Wait 1 second before setting output 1 ON.
http://myserver/axis-cgi/io/output.cgi?action=1:1000/
Digital Inputs
Four digital inputs, programmed using the Application Wizard, allow the AXIS
2400+/2401+ to be configured for time and alarm based image recording. For example, by
connecting a motion detector to a digital input, it is a relatively simple procedure to send a
single image (or video stream) to a remote imaging library each time the detector is
activated.
Querying the Status of Digital Inputs
The status of the four supported digital inputs can be queried in exactly the same way as
the relay output. Simply enter the following URL to query the status of the digital inputs:
