2.5.2 Redundancy
Redundancy function allows you to memorize record file in several disks. When there is file
damage occurred in one disk, there is a spare one in the other disk. You can use this
function to maintain data reliability and safety.
In the main menu, from Setting to Schedule, you can highlight redundancy button to enable
this function. See Figure 2-21.
In the main menu, from Advanced to HDD management, you can set one or more disk(s) as
redundant. You can select from the dropdown list. See Figure 2-21. System auto overwrites
old files once hard disk is full.
Please note only read/write disk or read-only disk can backup file and support file search
function, so you need to set at least one read-write disk otherwise you can not record video.
Note
About redundancy setup:

If current channel is not recording, current setup gets activated when the channel begin
recording the next time.
 If current channel is recording now, current setup will get activated right away, the current file
will be packet and form a file, then system begins recording as you have just set.
After all the setups please click save button, system goes back to the previous menu.

Playback or search in the redundant disk.
There are two ways for you to playback or search in the redundant disk.
 Set redundant disk(s) as read-only disk or read-write disk (Main menu->Advanced->HDD
management). See Figure 2-21.System needs to reboot to get setup activated. Now you can
search or playback file in redundant disk.
 Dismantle the disk and play it in another PC.

22

In Encode interface, click snapshot button to input snapshot mode, size, quality and
frequency. See the interface on the left of Figure 2-23.
 In FTP interface please input upload interval. See the interface in the middle of Figure
2-22.
 In Detect interface please enable snapshot function for specified channels (interface in
the middle of Figure 2-23). Or in alarm interface (interface on the right of Figure 2-23)
please enable snapshot function for specified channels.
Please refer to the following figure for detailed information. See Figure 2-23.
Figure 2-23
2.6.3 Priority
Please note the activation snapshot has the higher priority than schedule snapshot. If you
have enabled these two types at the same time, system can activate the activation snapshot
when alarm occurs, and otherwise system just operates the schedule snapshot.
2.6.4 Image FTP
In Network interface, you can set FTP server information. Please enable FTP function and
then click save button. See Figure 2-24.
Please boot up corresponding FTP server.
Please enable schedule snapshot (Chapter 2.5) or activation snapshot (Chapter 2.6.2) first,

23
Please input the
corresponding information
here, if you just upload the
image FTP.
Figure 2-24
2.7 Network
Here is for you to input network information.
The single network adapter interface is shown as in Figure 2-25 and the dual network adapters
interface is shown as in Figure 2-26.
 IP Version: There are two options: IPv4 and IPv6. Right now, system supports these two IP
address format and you can access via them.
 MAC address: The host in the LAN can get a unique MAC address. It is for you to access in the
LAN. It is read-only.
IP address: Here you can use up/down button ( ) or input the corresponding number to
input IP address. Then you can set the corresponding subnet mask the default gateway.
 Subnet prefix: The input value ranges from 0 to 128. It is to mark a specified network MAC
address. Usually it includes an organization of multiple-level.
 Default gateway: Here you can input the default gateway. Please note system needs to
check the validity of all IPv6 addresses. The IP address and the default gateway shall
be in the same IP section. That is to say, the specified length of the subnet prefix shall
have the same string.
 DHCP: It is to auto search IP. When enable DHCP function, you can not modify IP/Subnet
mask /Gateway. These values are from DHCP function. If you have not enabled DHCP
function, IP/Subnet mask/Gateway display as zero. You need to disable DHCP function to
view current IP information. Besides, when PPPoE is operating, you can not modify
IP/Subnet mask /Gateway.
 TCP port: Default value is 37777. You can change if necessary.
 UDP port: Default value is 37778. You can change if necessary.
 HTTP port: Default value is 80.
 RTSP port: Default value is 554.
Important: System needs to reboot after you changed and saved any setup of the above
four ports. Please make sure the port values here do not conflict.
 Max connection: system support maximal 128 users. 0 means there is no connection limit.
 MTU: It is to set MTU value of the network adapter. The value ranges from 1280-7200 bytes.
The default setup is 1500 bytes. Please note MTU modification may result in network
adapter reboot and network becomes off. That is to say, MTU modification can affect current

24
network service. System may pop up dialog box for you to confirm setup when you want to
change MTU setup. Click OK button to confirm current reboot, or you can click Cancel button
to terminate current modification. Before the modification, you can check the MTU of the
gateway; the MTU of the DVR shall be the same as or is lower than the MTU of the gateway.
In this way, you can reduce packets and enhance network transmission efficiency.
The following MTU value is for reference only.
 1500: Ethernet information packet max value and it is also the default value. It is the
typical setup when there is no PPPoE or VPN. It is the default setup of some router,
switch or the network adapter.
 1492: Recommend value for PPPoE.
 1468: Recommend value for DHCP.
 Preferred DNS server: DNS server IP address.
 Alternate DNS server: DNS server alternate address.
 Transfer mode: Here you can select the priority between fluency/video qualities.
 LAN download: System can process the downloaded data first if you enable this function.
The download speed is 1.5X or 2.0X of the normal speed.
 Dual network adapters mode:
 Multiple-address mode: eth0 and eth1 operate separately. You can use the services
such as HTTP, RTP service via etho0 or the eth1 usually you need to set one default
card(default setup is etho) to request the auto network service form the device-end such
as DHCP, email ,FTP and etc. In multiple-address mode, system network status is
shown as offline once one card is offline.
 Network fault-tolerance: In this mode, device uses bond0 to communicate with the
external devices. You can focus on one host IP address. At the same time, you need to
set one master card. Usually there is only one running card (master card).System can
enable alternate card when the master card is malfunction. The system is shown as
offline once these two cards are both offline. Please note these two cards shall be in the
same LAN.
 Load balance: In this mode, device uses bond0 to communicate with the external device.
The eth0 and eth1 are both working now and bearing the network load. Their network
load are general the same. The system is shown as offline once these two cards are
both offline. Please note these two cards shall be in the same LAN.
Important
For the IP address of IPv6 version, default gateway, preferred DNS and alternate DNS, the
input value shall be 128-digit. It shall not be left in blank.
After completing all the setups please click save button, system goes back to the previous menu.
