2. Preparation
2.3 Install the Device behind a NAT Router
Once installed, the device is accessible on your LAN. To access the device from the
Internet, you must configure your broadband router to allow incoming data traffic to the
device. If the device is installed on the LAN with a router, then it may get a dynamic IP
address from the DHCP server. However, if the device wants to be accessed from the
WAN, its IP address needs to be setup as fixed IP, also the port forwarding or Virtual
Server function of router needs to be setup.
However, if your NAT router supports UPnP feature, it can be very easy to achieve NAT
traversal automatically. To do this, enable the NAT-traversal feature, which will attempt to
automatically configure the router to allow access to the camera.
Installing the device with an UPnP router on your network is an easy 3-step procedure:
(1) Enable UPnP option of your NAT router
(2) Enable UPnP NAT traversal option of the Network Camera (default)
(3) Access your Network Camera by DIPS
(1) Enable UPnP option of your NAT router
To use UPnP IGD function (NAT traversal), you need to make sure the UPnP function is
enabled in your router. Most new home routers should support this function. Some of
routers are default enable and others are not. Please check user’s manual of your NAT
router for detail.
(2) Enable UPnP NAT traversal option of the Network Camera
Refer to Setting Î Network Î UPnP page for detail NAT traversal setting.
Note that this option is default enabled.
(3) Access your Network Camera by DIPS
Refer to Setting Î System Î System page for detail DIPS information.

conflicts with any other devices over the network.
If you want to make sure the IP address of the device, utilize the PING command as
follows:
z Start a DOS window.
z Type ping x.x.x.x, where x.x.x.x is the IP address of the device.

Appendix D: Bandwidth Estimation
The frame rate of video transmitted from the device depends on connection bandwidth
between client and server, video resolution, codec type, and quality setting of server.
Here is a guideline to help you roughly estimate the bandwidth requirements form your
device.
The required bandwidth depends on content of video source. The slow motion video will
produce smaller bit rate generally and fast motion will produce higher bit rate vice versa.
Actual results generated by the device may be varying.

Note: Audio streaming also takes bandwidth around 32kbps. Some xDSL/Cable modem
upload speeds could not even reach up to 128 kbps. Thus, you may not be able to
receive good quality video while also streaming audio on a 128 kbps or lower connection.
Even though the upload speed is more than 128kbps, for optimal video performance,
disabling audio streaming will get better video performance.

Appendix F: Configure Port Forwarding Manually
The device can be used with a router. If the device wants to be accessed from the WAN,
its IP address needs to be setup as fixed IP address, also the port forwarding or Virtual
Server function of router needs to be setup. This device supports UPnP traversal function.
Therefore, user could use this feature to configure port forwarding of NAT router first.
However, if user needs to configure port forwarding manually, please follow the steps as
below:
AirLive BU-3025 Manual
53
5. Appendix
Manually installing the device with a router on your network is an easy 3-step procedure as
following:
(1) Assign a local/fixed IP address to your device
(2) Access the Router with Your Web browser
(3) Open/Configure Virtual Server Ports of Your Router
(1) Assign a local/fixed IP address to your device
The device must be assigned a local and fixed IP Address that allows it to be recognized
by the router. Manually setup the device with a fixed IP address, for example,
192.168.0.100.
(2) Access the Router with Your Web browser
The following steps generally apply to any router that you have on your network. The
D-Link DI-624 is used as an example to clarify the configuration process. Configure the
initial settings of the router by following the steps outlined in the router’s Quick
Installation Guide.
If you have cable or DSL service, you will most likely have a dynamically assigned WAN IP
Address. ‘Dynamic’ means that your router’s WAN IP address can change from time to
time depending on your ISP. A dynamic WAN IP Address identifies your router on the
public network and allows it to access the Internet. To find out what your router’s WAN IP
Address is, go to the Status screen on your router and locate the WAN information for
your router. As shown on the following page the WAN IP Address will be listed. This will
be the address that you will need to type in your web browser to view your camera over
the Internet. Be sure to uncheck the Reset IP address at next boot button at the top of
the screen after modifying the IP address. Failure to do so will reset the IP address when
you restart your computer.
Your WAN IP Address will be listed here.
54
AirLive BU-3025 Manual
5. Appendix
Note: Because a dynamic WAN IP can change from time to time depending on your ISP,
you may want to obtain a Static IP address from your ISP. A Static IP address is a fixed
IP address that will not change over time and will be more convenient for you to use to
access your camera from a remote location. If you could not get a Static IP address from
your ISP, the DIPS™ or DDNS is a solution alternatively. Please refer to Appendix G for
more information.
(3) Open/set Virtual Server Ports to enable remote image viewing
The firewall security features built into the router and most routers prevent users from
accessing the video from the device over the Internet. The router connects to the Internet
over a series of numbered ports. The ports normally used by the device are blocked from
access over the Internet. Therefore, these ports need to be made accessible over the
Internet. This is accomplished using the Virtual Server function on the router. The
Virtual Server ports used by the camera must be opened through the router for remote
access to your camera. Virtual Server is accessed by clicking on the Advanced tab of
the router screen.
Follow these steps to configure your router’s Virtual Server settings
• Click Enabled.
• Enter a unique name for each entry.
• Select Both under Protocol Type (TCP and UDP)
• Enter your camera’s local IP Address (e.g., 192.168.0.100, for example) in the
Private IP field.
• If you are using the default camera port settings, enter 80 into the Public and
Private Port section, click Apply.
• Scheduling should be set to Always so that the camera images can be accessed at
any time.
A check mark appearing before the entry name will indicate that the ports are enabled.
Important: Some ISPs block access to port 80. Be sure to check with your ISP so that
you can open the appropriate ports accordingly. If your ISP does not pass traffic on port
80, you will need to change the port the camera uses from 80 to something else, such as
8080. Not all routers are the same, so refer to your user manual for specific instructions
on how to open ports.
AirLive BU-3025 Manual

5. Appendix
Enter valid ports in the Virtual Server section of your router. Please make sure to check
the box on this line to enable settings. Then the device can be access from WAN by the
router’s WAN IP Address.
By now, you have finished your entire PC configuration for this device.
Appendix G: DDNS Application
z
Preface
If you have a Cable modem or xDSL, this is a great way to host your own Networked
Device or other TCP/IP Service. Get your own domain like www.yourname.com,
www.yourname.com.tw etc. (Note: This domain must be registered with Internic via
registration authorities such as Network Solutions, DirectNIC, Register.com etc). Your
domain name's dynamic IP address is automatically tracked by a DDNS server.
Host your own Networked Device and much more no matter what your computer's IP
address may be and even if you have dialup, DSL or cable modem internet connection
where your computer's IP address changes all the time!! DDNS service supports all top
level domain names including but not limited to .com, .net, .org, .to, .uk etc.

Ethernet Network Environment
Normally, DDNS service is only necessary for the users that could only obtain dynamic IP
addresses. As to the users that could obtain the static valid IP address, they do not
usually have to apply the DDNS service. Before we decide if DDNS is necessary for the
users, we have to check what kind of Ethernet network environment we have to install our
Networked Device on.
(1) Environment of Fixed Valid IP Network
If users could obtain valid IP addresses, they could save the effort to apply DDNS service.
Because the IP address in this environment is fixed, users could input the IP address or
domain name of demo site directly in the IE browser.
(2) Environment of Dynamic IP Network
If users is under an environment of dynamic IP network (Dial-up xDSL), they have to apply
a domain name in advance. Then apply DDNS service. Finally setup the necessary
information of DDNS and PPPoE of the Networked Device in order to let the outside
administrator be able to access through internet.
