3. Quick Guide to View the IP Camera
3.1 Configure the IP Camera
The default IP address of IP camera is 192.168.1.19. Please make sure the IP camera and your PC
are on the same network segment before running the installation.
Or, you can search the IP camera’s IP address via the IP search tool: camsearch
12/46
IP Camera Quick Guide
To access the IP camera, the IP address of the PC should match the address below:
IP Address: 192.168.1.xxx
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
NOTE: xxx should be a number from 1 to 254 except 19, which is used by the IP camera. Please
make sure that two equipments can not share the same IP address in the same network. For example,
you can set up your PC IP address: 192.168.1.200.

4. WAN Access
It is necessary to do port mapping when needing to access the IP camera via WAN. Here take the
default ports for example to explain these ports. The follow picture is the interface of IP address in
Web Browser:
31/46
IP Camera Quick Guide
Web Port: Default is 80
Data Transfer Port: Default is 3000,
Data Control Port: Default is 3001
Remote Transfer Port: Default is 3002
Message Port: Default is 4602
WEB Port
Port】 Default is 80. It is a very important port to recognize the IP camera. This 80 web
【WEB
port is dropped acquiescently, for example, if the IP address of your IP camera in LAN is
192.168.1.199:80, the default IP address will be 192.168.1.199. If the web port is changed into other,
it can’t be dropped. For example, if the port is changed into 81, t he LAN IP address will be
192.168.1.199:81.
In the same way, the WAN IP address will follow this rule, too.
NOTE: If you don't map this port, you won’t access the IP camera via Internet Explorer in WAN.
Data Transfer Port
【Data
Port】Default is 3000.
NOTE: If you don't map this port, you can’t access the IP camera via Internet Explorer in WAN:
You won’t be able to open the webpage of the IP camera via using the IP address.
Data Control Port
Port】 Default is 3001. It is a hidden port in the background system. It has a
【Data
32/46
IP Camera Quick Guide
certain conversion relation with the Data Transfer Port: Date control port = date transfer port + 1.
If you change the date transfer port into 4000, the system will automatically change date
control port is 4001.
NOTE: If you don't map this port, you won’t get the image of the IP camera when accessing via
WAN: You can access the IP camera via Internet Explorer, but you won’t be able to get the image.
Remote Transfer Port
【Remote
Port】Default is 3002. It is a hidden port in the background system. It has a
certain conversion relation with the Data Transfer Port: Remote Transfer Port = Date Transfer Port +
2.
If you change the date transfer port into 4000, the system will automatically change remote
transfer port is 4002.
NOTE: If you don't map this port, you won’t get the recording in the SD card of the IP camera when
accessing via WAN.
Message Port
【Message
Port】 Default is 4602, for mobile monitor
NOTE: If you don't map this port, you won’t access the IP camera via the mobile phone.
33/46
IP Camera Quick Guide
There are two methods to finish the mapping: 1. UPNP mapping; 2, Manual mapping.
4.1
4.1.. UPNP Mapping
The related function is in Web browser, please refer to the users’ manual.
34/46
IP Camera Quick Guide
UPNP is a quick way to discover the IP camera on the network. Via UPNP function, the above
ports could be mapped automatically in the router.
External IP Address: WAN IP address of the router.
How to use UPNP function:
�
STEP1 Please enable the UPNP function both on the IP camera and router.
(Please note that not all routers support this function. Refer to your router manual for further details).
The IP camera will map automatically.
35/46
IP Camera Quick Guide
�
STEP2 If “State” display “Mapped”, means UPNP settings is successful,
Please refer to the above picture. Then, follow the below procedures to access the IP camera via
WAN: http://External IP Address:Web Port.
36/46
IP Camera Quick Guide
If External IP is: 119.145.0.165 and Web Port is 80.The address is: http://119.145.0.165:80
NOTE: The router must support UPNP and keep “On” state. If the UPNP of the router and IP
camera both are “ON”, but the state of the ports above is still “Unmapped”, please check the
router settings if the port have been used already. If there are more than one device connected in the
same gateway, the port of each device should be different to avoid the port conflict.
2. Manual Mapping
4.
4.2.
Via manual mapping, you have to map the ports in the router by yourself.
Different routers have different interfaces and methods. Take Cisco LINKSYS WRT54G2 for
example.

Step 2 Check the Status and access
38/46
IP Camera Quick Guide
Access to the “Status” to check the WAN IP address. If the WAN IP address is 119.145.0.165, the
IP address of the IP camera will be http://119.145.0.165:80 or http://119.145.0.165 when you access
via WAN.

5. Check Network Connection
You can Ping IP address and WEB port, Data Transfer Port, Data control port to check if the
network connection is successful.
Ping WAN IP address: Ping 122.160.1.106
122.160.1.106, if it shows the Reply from the IP address with bytes,
time, TTL, means IP address is ok.
Check WEB port via telnet IP address & web port, like: telnet 122.160.1.106 80
40/46
IP Camera Quick Guide
If it shows as follow, it means the port is OK.
You can use the same way to check the Data Transfer Port, Data control Port.
